New York Music & Internet Expo

NEW YORK, NY – The Third Annual New York Music & Internet Expo has outgrown its former home and will expand into the multifaceted Madison Square Garden Expo Center on April 21 and 22, 2001. The Expo was founded on the premise of helping artists establish and maintain creative control of their music. The Expo brings musicians together with other creators and producers of music as well as those who create technologies to promote and sell music.

“As traditional media outlets have consolidated, the music industry and artists must find and create new ways to successfully reach their fans. The Expo was created to help achieve those goals, and despite some dot coms closing, the immense popularity of technologies such as Napster has proven that consumers, musicians and music lovers around the world want music on the Internet to thrive,” said Expo Executive Producer/Founder Steve Zuckerman.

The Expo has traditionally been the springboard for many successful launches of new companies and products, from the Chairman and CEO of MP3.com Michael Robertson, first major keynote address to Creative Labs launching of their first MP3 player line of products (the Nomad) and the event where Napster and Bertlesmann first met on one of the Expo panels.

Noted music and technology pioneer Ray Kurzweil said, “Music has always led the way in the application of new technology from the woodmaking crafts of eighteenth century harpsichords to the signal processing technologies of late twentieth century digital synthesizers. Now the Internet is enabling an unprecedented level of worldwide creative collaboration. The New York Music & Internet Expo stands at the crosshairs of this latest revolution, and I’m thrilled to be giving the keynote and have the opportunity to present Ramona, my female alter ego, and the first virtual performing and recording artist.”

The New York Music and Internet Expo is the industrys leading pro-artist music conference and exposition that features two days of panels, conferences, workshops, new product releases and demonstrations and a large trade show floor that promotes new technologies and companies that are helping artists and industry effectively promote their music and new releases.
