With The Entertainment Institute directing the educational and networking program, the Conference programming is current, relevant and applicable. Through our carefully selected panelists and instructors, the acquired knowledge and networking opportunities are can't-miss. The nighttime Festival portion is a blast, chock full of non-stop performances by over 200 original artists, across all genres, over three nights. We can't wait to unveil these programs in the coming months, and we can't wait to see you at Launch 2017!"
