2016 was a year of innovation — self-driving cars hit the roadways, an explosive phone launched, and Elon Musk announced his plans to visit Mars by 2020. All the innovation bled over into the music industry as well, where we saw VR, multiple streaming platforms launch, and so much more. With all the excitement, it's hard to differentiate between what's a fad and what's the future. In this session, a panel of music industry digital experts will break down the future of the harvesting and harnessing of consumer data to better track and target commercial activity, creating opportunities for marketing and sponsorships, as well as programming of future events and content.
