Caribbean’s #1 Music Business Conference Returns in August

PORT OF SPAIN — The Artiste Management Music Business Conference (AMMBCON), the Caribbean’s #1 music business conference, is now open for registration at

Scheduled for August 19-21, 2015 at University of Trinidad and Tobago’s North Port of Spain Campus, AMMBCON designed panels and workshops to offer artistes, producers, songwriters and managers with practical, action-oriented advice and solutions to the problems they’re facing. Topics range from how to market yourself effectively, how manage bookings, how jumpstart songwriting creativity, and how to produce ear-catching music.

“We know you may be thinking ‘another music conference?’” said ASK Promotions/AMMBCON CEO Stephen Howard. “But this isn’t one of those events where industry insiders preach and artistes walk away with little to help them move to the next level. AMMBCON is open to all Caribbean artistes who want to gain control over their music careers and make money in today’s entertainment world.”

AMMBCON 2015 features top music experts from renowned organizations such as:
· Grammy Recording Academy
· South by Southwest (SXSW)
· YouTube
· The Bellamy Group
· Platinum Productions & Media
· After Touch Music
· WOMEX, Piranha Arts
· CidaCo
· Vibe Magazine

For as little as $500 TTD participants get three days of mind-blowing sessions and a chance to showcase for a chance to perform at music events throughout the world – like South by Southwest (SXSW) 2016 in Austin, Texas.

SXSW Booking Programmer Todd Puckhaber has been an AMMBCON panelist the last two years and credits his decision to create the only country-specific showcase for Trinidad & Tobago at SXSW 2015 to his participation at the conference.

“Without AMMBCON, I doubt I would have been exposed to T&T talent,” Puckhaber said. “There is a lot of undiscovered talent in the Caribbean and AMMBCON seems to be one of the few organizations trying to develop talent for the international market.”

Roger Corbin, CEO of Platinum Productions & Media, says AMMBCON’s ability to give artistes a platform to display their talent is a major benefit.

“AMMBCON impresses me with its ability to connect with the community and give the talented artiste an opportunity to learn about the entertainment business and a platform to display their talent,” Corbin said. “It’s an outlet to showcase the local talent to a global audience and present them with the necessary tools for success in a very competitive industry.”
