Latin Music Industry Insiders’ Report at the California Copyright Conference
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (MuseWire) – Eric Palmquist, board member of the California Copyright Conference, has released a list of topics to be covered at the CCC presentation, “Music En Espanol,” which will take place the evening of February 8 in Sherman Oaks (Los Angeles). Palmquist, who is also a Director at Disney Music Publishing, notes that presenters on the panel will be discussing inside information from labels, lawmakers, managers, marketers, touring companies, retailers and music publishers.
“Instead of a conversation purely held in a vacuum, we plan to have each panelist describe specific areas in which they are now finding success so attendees can walk away with details and a plan of action for their own career,” Palmquist notes.
Topics for the dinner/panel event will include:
– Sharing of statistics about the growth of Latin music in the U.S. market;
– Genre explanation and examples;
– Obstacles to digital growth in Latin sector and discussion of possible solutions;
– Analysis of the current state of the Latin music market;
– Business opportunities to be seized now and in the near future.
“Latin music has an incredible reach around the globe and this will be a rare opportunity to learn firsthand about the current state of the market,” Palmquist stated. “From recording to touring, from airplay to sales, and from publishing to finances, we are looking forward to a stimulating presentation,” Palmquist added.
The panel will be a distinguished group of entertainment industry professionals who are deeply involved in all aspects of the Latin music market both domestic and international.
