After four years in Los Angeles, the Music Business Association’s (Music Biz) annual convention is moving to Nashville. It's the first time in the organization’s 50+ year history that “Music City USA” has hosted this event. The conference will be held at the Sheraton Downtown Hotel in Nashville from May 12-14.
Music Biz President James Donio made the announcement in his speech today at the Opening Breakfast of Music Biz 2014 event.
Music Biz, then known as NARM, began hosting their annual convention in Los Angeles at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in 2011. In 2012, the event was rechristened Music Biz 2012, and in 2014, the association held their first convention since rebranding as the Music Business Association.
It also introduced Music Biz’s annual Metadata Summit in 2013 and routinely features 100 speakers from every sector of the music business.
