ASCAP has announced that the 14th edition of its signature “I Create Music” EXPO, will return to the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles on May 2 - 4, 2019. The PRO also announced the release of 60+ hours of video of panels and performances from the 2018 conference.
The ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO provides aspiring songwriters and composers with networking opportunities, one-on-one feedback and real-world advice from hitmaking songwriters.
Successful songwriters that have participated in ASCAP EXPO early in their careers include LELAND (“Youth,” Troye Sivan), Vincent Berry (“Sandcastles,” Beyoncé) and Meghan Trainor. Trainor was a keynote speaker at the 2018 EXPO, eagerly recounting to the audience her EXPO experience in 2010, when she attended sessions with Justin Timberlake and Bill Withers, Quincy Jones and Ludacris, and how meeting Natasha Bedingfield was “the coolest day of my life.”
“ASCAP EXPO offers a unique, welcoming environment for music creators to come together and express their individual voices, no matter their level, musical style or genre. In 2019, our participants will be encouraged to embrace new opportunities and the close-knit community they can only find at EXPO to reach the next stage of their careers,” commented Lauren Iossa, ASCAP Executive Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer.
