Ohio University


Now in its third year, the Ohio University Music Industry Summit is an exclusive on-line event focused on the stories of artists, entrepreneurs, leaders, and change agents as they engage the music industry from a regional, national, and global approach. The Summit is a confluence of students, artists, industry executives, educators, and entrepreneurs in a collaborative and educational series of interviews, panels, conversations, and performances. Attendees will learn about this industry from unique perspectives brought to life with stories, practical experiences, and dialogue on present challenges and opportunities. Hosted by the Ohio University Center for Entrepreneurship, Scripps College of Communication, and the University’s Performing Arts and Concert Series, this year’s Summit will be presented in partnership with Nashville-based experiential marketing company Red Story.
