Host a Music Industry Convention - What, Really?
How to Host a Music Industry Convention

Ruth, Founder of the UnConvention

Starting your own music industry convention might sound like a far fetched idea, but it's not as much of a pipe dream as you may imagine. Although your first event is unlikely to draw the big crowds like SXSW, Midem, CMJ and other well established music industry trade shows, there's no reason you can't be the brains behind a small gathering of musicians in your town, where good ideas and music can flow. Learn more about setting up your own music trade show event in the steps that follow.

Just in case you're still not convinced, the photos throughout the article are from the UnConvention, a music convention started in Manchester, England, in 2008 by a small indie label with no funding.
