After taking this year off, the conference returns May 29, 30 and 31, 2002 for its fourth conference in Las Vegas.
The conference's name has been changed from Emerging Artists & Talent in Music, to Emerging Artists & Technology in Music, due to its new technology partner, pulver.com, a New York based company that builds community for the IP communications industry through global conferences and newsletters.
The three-day event will feature panels on A&R, songwriting and publishing, record contracts, artist management, concert promotion, agency representation, marketing, digital delivery, and promotion panels, industry perspectives and mentor sessions. An artist panel has also been added.
Confirmed moderators and panelists include Concrete Management's Walter O'Brien and Freeze Management's John Reese, record producer Ross Robinson, Village Recorder's Jeff Greenberg and EAT'M Co-Director Sue Shifrin-Cassidy.
Showcase submissions are being accepted Aug. 1, 2001 through Jan. 15, 2002. Artists will be notified of selections no later than Feb. 28, 2002. A new addition for EAT'M 2002 is that all performers selected will receive full, complimentary registrations. Among the artists discovered at EAT'M include Michelle Branch, Slipknot, Papa Roach, Choice of Reign, LoBall, Lefty and more.
