A&R WORLDWIDE and MUSEXPO Founder/Pres. SAT BISLA and U.K.-based international rock festival booker and 7PM MANAGEMENT owner SEVEN WEBSTER are launching the first-ever GLOBAL ROCK SUMMIT (GRS), to be held APRIL 4th-5th, 2014 at the HOLLYWOOD ROOSEVELT HOTEL in LOS ANGELES. The GRS is an international rock music conference aimed at bringing together all aspects of the multi-billion dollar global rock music industry in one annual, focused gathering with a view of helping to further stimulate a very buoyant but often much overlooked sector of the music industry .
The GRS will be inclusive of all areas of rock music, from classic rock and metal to screamo, AOR, alternative rock, black metal, progressive rock, doom, stoner, blues, punk, emo and hardcore. "If it’s heavy and it rocks and you want to network, trade and expand your business opportunities, then the Global Rock Summit will be the perfect community for you to connect with the world of rock!" SEVEN WEBSTER stated.

"After a meeting with SEVEN early last year we discussed the idea of working on a rock music conference, as there seemed to be no central rock conference with a global vision," BISLA stated. "It also seemed obvious to us that its natural home had to be in LOS ANGELES due to its long and close association with rock music culture. After discussing this idea with influencers in the worldwide rock market, it was evident that there was an immediate need for a GLOBAL ROCK SUMMIT."
"SAT and his team are, in my mind, the best people I know at delivering the highest quality conferences in whatever area they choose to work," WEBSTER stated, "So for me there is no one better I could wish to work with on delivering our first GLOBAL ROCK SUMMIT. Our aim is to help stimulate business within the rock music community in a positive and united environment. We want all in attendance to leave having forged new business relationships and enjoyed constructive dialogue with each other as well as helping define a stronger community and vision for the world of rock!"
