(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Immediatek, the parent company of DiscLive, has signed an exclusive agreement with Billboard to record and produce onsite discs for Billboard's various conferences and events held throughout the year. Included are the 2005 Billboard R&B Hip Hop Conference and Awards which was held in Atlanta, GA, on August 3-5, the Billboard Latin Music Conference and Awards, which took place in Miami, and Roadwork '05 on October 25-26 in New York. DiscLive will record each panel and roundtable at the conferences, providing complimentary copies for attendees immediately afterwards. In some cases, DiscLive will make multimedia compilation discs of entire conferences available for sale as well.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Billboard for these events," said Zach Bair, CEO of Immediatek and DiscLive. "We look forward to giving attendees the opportunity to listen and engage in these valuable conferences while we take care of taking notes."
"As we continue to grow our audience and reach, Disclive will extend the longevity to our conference content," said Tamara Conniff, executive editor of Billboard. –Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
