  1. In this day and age many young SX attendees are trying to build a team around them. A young group of panelists are bringing a fresh perspective to a more traditional model of breaking. This panel includes managers, labels, publishers & agents in one diverse conversation.

  2. The Power of Digital Communities
    Instead of listing a bunch of impressive panelists that you’ll barely listen to while you prepare your elevator pitch, and get your business cards out, let’s just present our idea:
    The most effective way to grow an engaged, international fan base is to inspire meaningful connections by tapping into digital communities formed around common interests that actively curate niche, crowd-sourced content. These communities keep fans passionate and engaged by promoting active listening and forming social bonds. – See more at:
