A 4 day gathering of music/entertainment professionals providing career information for new artists
The Music Industry Global Expo 2016 (MIGEXPO 2016) is coming to Richmond, VA on October 26th-30th!
The MIGEXPO 2016 is a music conference created to help launch new and upcoming artists, bands, producers, engineers, public speakers, television broadcasters, radio dj, and musicians wanting solid and positive careers in the music and entertainment business.
Another primary goal and pre-opening of the MIGEXPO 2016 is to also launch a full FREE weekend of heavy concentration on music and business education for underprivileged youth. We want to give our youth the greatest opportunity to turn their lifetime dream into a reality!
It’s extremely important that we’re able to provide assistance, information, and tools to our youth. They are our next generation of the music and the arts.
Music is the universal language of all mankind. The same components that make up music - pitch, chords, rhythm, tempo - are also present in our everyday speech no matter the language you speak! With education, nurturing, direction, development, a national industry platform, and exposure - these vital contributions equip an individual seeking a strong career in the music and entertainment business.
The Music Industry Global Expo is a faith based event aiming to reach all race, cultures, and genres of music. We want to strive to offer a positive environment and spread the message of perseverance, faith, encouragement with your financial support. We would like to offer underprivileged youth and adults several full workshop classes, open panel instruction sessions, musician clinics, and so much more. Classes like…
- Networking with major producers and engineers, fashion consultants
- Artist Development and Vocal Training
- Songwriting, Publishing, and Copyrighting
- Intense classes on marketing, advertising, graphics design, website, mass social media marketing
- Tons of advice from major music consultants and entertainment attorneys
- Television/Film, Broadcasting, Radio DJ
- Creating and Expanding your Brand
- A chance to perform on major platforms in front of major executives. Mostly Christian, CCM, Contemporary and Urban Gospel, Inspirational, Country, Jazz, Inspirational Hip Hop, and some clean versions of Pop and R and B.
