Nashville TN – For most independent artists, songwriters, and record labels, the only way to truly develop international connections and showcase their act and music for movers and shakers of the industry is to participate in a major music conference. But for the vast majority of these, the high cost of airfare, hotel and restaurant meals, combined with direct costs of participating in the event, has made it financially unfeasible. That is until now.

Nashville based Indie Connect, an educational and networking organization for working artists, songwriters and musicians, is bringing all of the features and benefits of a live global music conference right into the artist's home. The IC Virtual Music Conference and Expo will feature 3 days of high-level international networking, over 50 expert presentations by experts worldwide, a music business trade show and both live and video artist showcases. And best of all, it is being held exclusively online.

“It’s a natural evolution” says Indie Connect CEO, Vinny Ribas. “Modern technology makes it possible for us to host a highly interactive, extremely informative and entertaining event that can transform the careers of working artists around the globe, for a fraction of the cost of a land-based conference. Virtual conferences are popular in most other industries, so why not the music industry?

Price wise, it almost seems too good to be true. Anyone can participate in the conference for under $50 for all 3 days. Businesses can buy a trade show booth for under $250, while artists and record labels can buy a showcase booth for under $150.

“This is going to be a truly global event” adds Ribas, “We’ve attracted speakers, businesses and artists from the US, Russia, Great Britain, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and China, to name a few. For an artist, it is an ideal way to make contacts and showcase themselves to industry executives and talent buyers worldwide. For businesses, it is an ideal way to demonstrate and sell their products and services to thousands of artists.

The event was originally scheduled for January 2013. However, it has been moved ahead to February 26-28 to accommodate the demand. It is being sponsored by StreetJelly.com, Beppsolute.com, IndieHitMaker.com, The Business Side Of Music Podcast, Music Dish, Music Connection Magazine, Nashville video production company, Media Design Services and MI2N. You can get more information, purchase tickets or booths or inquire about sponsorship at www.virtualmusicconference.com.
