Sync Summit is a high-level, focused networking event where top music supervisors, heads of music in visual and interactive media (TV, film, video games, advertising, the internet and mobile), label executives, publishers, music libraries, composers, artists, technologists, lawyers, accountants, brand managers and service providers gather for two days of discussion, networking and dealmaking.

Sync Summit is designed to be a different kind of conference – not a mere pitfchfest where the connections made are soon forgotten or not followed up, or a general glossing over of the music in media market. Rather, Sync Summit is organized around fostering real, productive networking opportunities, presenting case studies of how music is discovered and used, evolving business models in the music in media market as well as creative and promotional considerations.

DON'T MISS THESE PANELS:

(Artist X Sync) = AudienceRevenue²
September 8, 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM

It’s a fact that artists (and the people that work with them) need to expand the ways and means used to promote production and generate revenue. Sync and brand affiliation are the fulcrum for artist development – having a song affiliated with a hit show or a multi-million dollar ad campaign is one of the surest ways to build audience and ultimately revenue. Join our experts on branding, sync and promotion as they discuss the ways and means artists build their presence in the 21st century.
