“In terms of opportunities for networking, professional development, and meeting up with old friends, the Annual Conference is by far the most productive few days of the year. All this, and we get to support our Society too!”

– Jonathan Derbridge, AZ


This year’s conference features three Major Networking Events open to all attendees who have purchased a four-day registration badge or a guest badge!

Opening Night Networking Event at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Leading the charge as this year’s premier venue and host of the Monday evening opening event the world famous Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. It’s hard to capture the essence of the museum’s exhibits in words, featuring several brand-new components and exhibits, including the can’t-miss Power of Rock Experience in the Connor Theater. The immersive video by Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme puts music fans front and center for a revue of 31 years of induction ceremonies and performances. So join us in kicking off a great week as you meander through six levels and more than 50 exhibits of legendary musicians at this exclusive event for conference attendees!
