Started in 2018, the Ohio University Music Industry Summit is an exclusive 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 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.
