ASCAP EXPO Early Bird Pricing During November


Registration is open for the 11th annual ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO, April 28th – 30th, 2016 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. This premier conference for songwriters, composers, artists and producers in all genres of music kicks off on April 28th with ASCAP’s General Annual Membership Meeting. EXPO participants can register for the conference with a special “early bird” price during the month of November.

The ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO has succeeded by giving participants an unforgettable and authentic experience – real knowledge, tools, connections and a community of support and guidance they can’t find anywhere else. ASCAP has released a video to promote the 2016 event, which features attendees sharing their passions in their own words about how EXPO became a life and career-changing experience for them:
