The New Music Seminar Returns To New York City June 21-23

New_Music_Seminar_Square_rgbThe 23rd Annual New Music Seminar (NMS) will be held June 21-23 at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel. The conference brings together. The distinguised music convention and festival limits its registration to 1,500 esteemed delegates and ensures that all sectors of the music industries are represented. This year's convention boasts over 180 influential speakers, thought provoking discussions, and live performances from the NMS 'Artists on the Verge'.

“The NMS projections for the music industry continue to become reality, but too many great artists and songs continue to wallow in obscurity despite the massive technological changes. In 2014, only 63% of U.S. music industry revenue came from actual sales of recordings, physical or digital.” said Tom Silverman, Executive Director of New Music Seminar. “In five years, sales revenue will plummet to less than 30% of total revenue. How will artists break in this new music business?  How will the industry monetize music?  The New Music Seminar brings together the future executives of the music business with its current leaders to negotiate the path to a bigger and better music ecosystem for all of us. Your voice is crucial in this discussion.”

“2015 will prove to be a great year for growth in the music business and NMS is firmly placed on the calendars of music business leaders and visionaries. This year will include expanded international events, mentoring sessions, new deal-making opportunities, more chances for your voice to be heard, and as always, the highest-profile lineup of speakers and break-out performers.” said Peter Schwinge, General Manager.


Registration is available at a discounted rate of $229 until January 16th, which gives access to the conference, opening night red carpet event and New Music Nights showcases. Special group packages and sponsorship opportunities are also available. Visit for more information.
