Music business magnate Tom Silverman, with a statement, announced the return of the New York-based New Music Seminar, the conference/festival originally launched in 1980 and revamped five years ago - after 14 years of silence.
"Join us as we set the stage for the most exciting music business era since the 80's", wrote Silverman, announcing the return of the event, to be held at the New Yorker Hotel June 9-11.
The New Music Seminar 2013 will gather some of music's biggest brains and highest-powered executives - such as PepsiCo's Frank Cooper III, Clear Channel Entertainment Enterprises' president John Sykes, VEVO president and CEO Rio Caraeff, Virgin Records' CCO Ron Fair, SoundExchange president Michael J. Huppe and Atlantic Records' chairman and CEO Craig Kallman; they will "share, discuss and cultivate innovative ideas and partnerships for the new music industry" according to a press release.
NMS' two featured partners this year are performance rights organizations SoundExchange (returning for its second year) and SESAC.
