“Our mission is to provide a platform that encourages dialogue between music creators, and after five years in other cities, we are really excited to bring Music Expo to Nashville for the first time with the help of SAE Institute. Nashville is a music hub for so many creators, musicians, producers and songwriters, and we hope to be apart of that, and provide more opportunities for the creative community to gather,” said Loïc Maestracci, Founder of Music Expo.
Earlier this year, Music Expo held full day conferences in Miami, FL and Boston, MA. Based Boston remarked, “…events such as Music Expo are integral in providing educational opportunities for all types of creatives, especially in cities where resources and infrastructure exist on a smaller scale than the New York City’s and Los Angeles.” Ghost Cult added Music Expo Boston, the “…day to create a place where people can listen, network and learn about the music industry was a huge success.” View a recap of Music Expo Miami (HERE) and Music Expo Boston (HERE).
