    No expense will be spared by The WiMN when honoring their 2015 She Rocks Award recipients – there will be food and beverages available for all attendees as well as featured performances, giveaways, and a silent auction taking place throughout the evening.


    The WiMN founder Laura B. Whitmore comments, “This year we are moving the She Rocks Awards to an evening event and really going all out to celebrate the achievements of these talented and inspiring women. There will be an opportunity to network, some great performances, plus some surprise moments as well!”

    Celebrating women in the industry for the third consecutive year, The WiMN She Rocks Awards has become a standard at the NANM show. Bringing industry leaders, media, artists, fans, and music icons together under one roof, the opportunities for professional networking are infinite. A NANM badge is not required to attend, but tickets will need to be purchased well in advance as the past two years have been a full sellout.
