Partnering with Lafayette Convention & Visitors Commission & Lafayette Consolidated Government, delegates will experience two days of inspiring and informative panel discussions and presentations, as well as have the opportunity stay for the weekend to attend and experience the international Festivals Acadiens et Creoles.
Music Cities Convention is the world’s first event to explore the relationship between city planning, strategy, development and the music industry. From venue and community space development to education, employment, event provision, licensing, regulation and demographics, music industries impact a number of issues prevalent in city planning, strategy, regulative and legislative aspects. Music Cities Convention will bring together the top minds from municipalities, regions, academics, consultancies and the music industry to discuss, debate and introduce new thinking, action and structure to develop more vibrant, global cities.
This edition's theme is: DIVERSITY & IMPROVING OUR CITIES AND COMMUNITIES THROUGH MUSIC
It will be the 7th edition of Music Cities Convention and 3rd to be held in the USA.
300 delegates, from all over the world, will participate in two full days of presentations, panels, and round-table sessions as well as a lot networking opportunities and live music!
