Commented MUSIC BIZ Pres. JAMES DONIO: “With streaming services growing by leaps and bounds and the touring industry fully embracing the digital age, there is more fan data available now than ever before, which can sometimes be overwhelming for artists and their managers. We need to view this abundance of data as an opportunity rather than an obstacle, and our TOWN HALL is designed to encourage that viewpoint by showing today’s managers exactly how to take advantage of this powerful tool to further their artists’ careers and get the most out of going on the road.”
