Global Rock Summit

UK-based booker and manager Seven Webster has announced an alliance with MUSExpo man Sat Bisla to launch a Global Rock Summit in Hollywood in April 2014. The rock-focused conference will aim to bring “together all aspects of the multi-billion dollar global rock music industry in one annual, focused gathering with a view of helping to further stimulate a very buoyant but often much overlooked sector of the music industry”.

The first event will take place from 4-5 Apr at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, with a mix of panels, showcases and networking opportunities. Webster told CMU: “If it’s heavy and it rocks and you want to network, trade and expand your business opportunities, then the Global Rock Summit will be the perfect community for you to connect with the world of rock!”

Bisla added: “After a meeting with Seven early last year in London, we discussed the idea of working on a rock music conference, as there seemed to be no central rock conference with a global vision. It also seemed obvious to us that its natural home had to be in Los Angeles due to its long and close association with rock music culture. After discussing this idea with influencers in the worldwide rock market, it was evident that there was an immediate need for a Global Rock Summit”.
