NARM Law Conference Set for May 12

Posted in News on April 13, 2011

The National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) will orchestrate its Los Angeles Entertainment & Technology Law Conference on Thursday, May 12 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. Sponsored by BMI, the event kicks off with a networking lunch at noon, which is followed by a stacked lineup of panels until 5:30 p.m. The schedule features in-depth presentations and discussions that “intersect technology, copyright and law issues that are at the forefront of the entertainment business.”

BMI’s Richard Conlon, Senior Vice President, Corporate Planning, Communications & New Media, will contribute to the global copyright panel, designed to analyze copyright reform around the world, particularly in Europe, where recent developments are driving much of the conversation. Conlon will be joined other experts and legal minds, and the day’s other panels will also benefit from NARM’s characteristically top-tier cross-section of leaders.

Early bird registration rates for the law conference grant 40% off the regular price of admission, but the early bird offer ends April 22. Regular rates are $249 for NARM members, $299 for non-members and $69 for students.

Register now.

NARM’s LA Entertainment & Technology Law Conference is part of the 53rd annual NARM Convention, slated for May 9-12. The convention includes a broad selection of educational meetings and networking opportunities, while the Awards Dinner Finale serves as the event’s capstone. All registrants are invited to attend the Awards celebration, which will honor a slew of BMI legends and contemporary trendsetters alike, including Brian Wilson, Nicki Minaj, Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, Annie Lenox (PRS), and more.
