On Saturday, August 18th, Toronto’s Rivoli will be the site of the third annual Northern Power Summit, a one-day Urban Music conference dedicated to providing education and tools, as well as access to individuals to help Canadian artists and industry professionals develop their careers internationally.
“The overwhelming response from the first two editions of the conference is that people were very grateful to have an event like ours because of a lack of educational events in the Urban industry.” – D.O. Gibson
Together with gold sponsor Believe Distribution Services, Northstarr Entertainment will once again present the event, whose education component will feature panels and “Ted”-style talks from a variety of Canadian and international industry professionals.
“Last year’s event had over 150 attendees ranging from emerging and established artists to current tastemakers and long-time industry professionals,” says Duane “D.O.” Gibson, Founder and President of Northstarr Entertainment.
“Now that we are in the third year, we want to continue to build on that success. The overwhelming response from the first two editions of the conference is that people were very grateful to have an event like ours because of a lack of educational events in the Urban industry. We’re really excited to present another valuable day of programming for our attendees this year.”
Northern Power Summit also includes a showcase component and dedicated networking time in addition to the educational elements.
More information can be found on the official site, NPS18.com. Conference programming will run from 1-6 p.m. on August 18th at Rivoli, Toronto ON.
