Around 100 of the best and brightest minds in music, technology and marketing braved the rain storms and made it down for 2 very special panels:

1. Offline/online working together

Shana Fong (Music/Entertainment Marketing at Eventbrite)
Cecilia Pagkalinawan (Founder at Apploud)
Brandon Martinez (Cofounder & CEO of INDMusic)
Tegan Gaan (Founder at Gigit)
Nikhil Shah (Mixcloud Cofounder) + Moderator


2. Brands & Music

Justin Medcraft (Global Brand Manager Smirnoff)
Ed Shapiro (Entertainment Attorney – Reed Smith Partner)
Anthony Demby (Founder at Humbleriot + Soho House Music)
DJ Eleven (The Rub DJs)
Andrew Hampp (Billboard) + Moderator
 A few of the memorable soundbites from the panel discussions included:

On the role of agencies: “Cultural translators are essential” – DJ Eleven

Bridging the offline/online gap, the panels were well received notably via Twitter:

The discussion panels were followed by networking, drinks and music by NYC’s finest
