Ask Promotions is teaming up with the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Investment to host the Artiste Management Music Business Conference (AMMBCON) for four days only.


The conference, which started yesterday and runs until to August 17, AMMBCON is set to be unlike any other local music conference, offering indepth workshops and the opportunity to network with award-winning international music practitioners.


This is the second year that Ask Promotions is hosting the event which targets anyone who wants to take control of their music careers or get a clearer understanding of the music industry. 


Among the companies which will be represented at the event is US-based South by Southwest (SXSW) which hosts a similar event in Austin, Texas, each year aimed at exploring the future of the music industry through panel discussions, trade shows and conferences. Entertainment marketing companies such as After Touch Music, Miralex Entertainment and the Bellamy Group will also be present. 


In a press release sent earlier this week, Ask Promotions principal Stephen Howard said the focus of AMMBCON will be “to foster creativity and build a thriving music industry by offering creators, academics and industry professionals the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns about the future and by offering the global population the opportunity for involvement and education.” 


Howard said the conference will tackle questions on digital and voice deconstruction, launching soca music internationally, mobilising support for local music as well as aspects of touring, publicity, promotions and artiste management. 


The conference will end with the Total Local Concert which will be held at the Zen Night Club on August 17 in Port-of-Spain.


The concert will feature feature Jah Melody, H2O Phlo, The Codrington Pan Family Steel Orchestra, Mungal Patasar, and Orange Sky, among others.
