Greetings from the Billboard Conference in NYC
Submitted by: Scott Neal, Assistant General Manager
I’m in NYC with our General Manager at the Billboard (magazine) Touring Conference and Awards. It’s a great conference with a lot of the East Coast agents, managers and artists. Panels today included a behind-the-scenes look at how the Backstreet Boys/New Kids On The Block tour came to fruition and whether or not they will continue together in the future (they will).
Another panel focused on what touring production managers look for when coming to an arena. Tour managers for U2 and Billy Joel were on the panel.
A third session included an in-depth analysis at social media and marketing (thus, you are reading this).
We have leads on several concerts which have not played Wichita in a VERY long time. More to come…
