The Artist Management Conference 2010 (AMCON2010) is scheduled to take place in New York on October 14-15, 2010 and will bring together Artist Managers, self-managed Artists, and other music industry professionals to provide a forum to discuss issues of common interest, stay ahead of the curve, and illuminate areas of opportunity amidst the threats in a shifting music business landscape.

The conference will address a variety of topics including record labels that are positioning themselves as artist branding companies and structuring 360 (or multiple-rights) deals with artists.  As a consequence of these deals, turf wars between record labels and artist managers are predicted to break out as record labels are seen to be usurping the role of artist managers.

Technological breakthroughs and innovations (in the form of music apps, widgets, gadgets, services, etc) are revolutionizing the ways in which management companies, artists, record labels, publishing companies, and others can work together to more efficiently monetize relationships, share data, and maximize revenue. New business models that facilitate relationships in the areas of branding, licensing, endorsements and sponsorships are also emerging.
