REVOLT TV Declares Inaugural Conference The Revolt "Media" Conference

October Event to Focus on Confluence of Music and Media as the Two Collide to Deliver Disruption in Access, Streaming, Discovery and Beyond

NEW YORK, Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today  REVOLT Vice Chairman & RMC Chair Andre Harrell announced the "REVOLT Music Conference" will immediately be renamed the "REVOLT Media Conference" in recognition of the growing convergence of media and power of music as a bridge across all channels. 

"Social media, streaming and the growing list of Web-connected devices have had an undeniable effect on the music industry, creating more opportunities for fans, artists and brands to connect in entertaining, meaningful ways," stated RMC Chair Andre Harrell. "Conference attendees should expect to not only hear about trends in music, but also hear how to leverage the power of music to engage audiences effectively across mediums."

Harrell, an entertainment powerhouse with credits spanning television, film, music and branding, has been on the forefront of culture for nearly four decades. Setting the tone for the conference by hand-picking speakers and now broadening the focus of the conference, Harrell promises attendees will not only leave with a better idea of where the music industry is heading, but will also have the context of media overall, and how to successfully position their brands, artists and companies in the process.

Conference attendees will leave the conference with important contacts as well as a heightened understanding of the process of monetizing their clients in all three of these areas: social media, product launching or endorsing, and new ways of distribution. They will become better educated about the new record business and learn to increase revenues through music and media.
