(CelebrityAccess) — The American Association of Independent Music announced a round of additional panels and speakers ahead of the annual Let’s Get Digital Summit.

Now in its second year, the Let’s Get Digital Summit is scheduled to take place as a two-day online event from December 9-10. Aimed at the independent music community, the summit will seek to create opportunities between independent record labels, digital service providers, technology solutions, and other music industry professionals.

The 2021 edition of the summit will feature a series of online workshops, executive one-on-one networking sessions, panel discussions addressing music-tech topics, new technologies, and licensing solutions.

Notable topics for the summit include sync opportunities within the fitness tech space, unique ways to engage with fans outside of traditional platforms like social media and DSPs, and a series of “Lightning Talks” that will bring attendees behind the scenes of some of the largest digital marketing campaigns from A2IM membership this past year.

Panels for 2021 will include NFTs, with Jesse Kirshbaum (Dreamstage CMO/NUE Agency CEO) moderating a panel for NFTs: Are They Worth It For Independents?, which explores the opportunities that are available for independents in the NFT world. The panel features an artist-to-artist conversation between internationally-acclaimed dance artists Aluna (Mad Decent) and Barclay Crenshaw, a.k.a. Claude Von Stroke (Owner of Dirtybird Records), along with Chloe Jeniky, NFT/Marketing Manager at Mau5trap Recordings.

NFTs 360 will examine what NFTs are and how to get started in the digital space. The panel, moderated by A2IM CEO Richard James Burgess, features Rasty Turek, Founder and CEO of Pex, a leader in digital rights technology; as well as Paula Van Der Waerden, Co-Founder, Head of Partnerships at RCRDSHP, Bruno Guez, CEO at Revelator, and Joe Connors, Director of Strategy & Development at Dirtybird.

The Lightning Talk four-part series Digital Marketing/Fresh Takes goes behind the scenes of some of the most successful digital marketing campaigns in the independent music space this year. The series includes presentations from EMPIRE’s Moody Jones, (SVP of Digital & Creative) who oversees over 200 releases a month and helps artists navigate their digital rollouts, and Peter Kadin (VP of Marketing), a music industry expert with over a decade of experience in marketing, public relations, and content development, discussing how they worked to bring late R&B singer and actress Aaliyah to streaming services.

Additional speakers and panels will be announced in the lead-up to the summit.
