What are the trajectories of today's music industry? CMJ founders Bobby Haber and Joanne Abbot Green formed Mondo.NYC with the hope of helping music industry professionals and hopefuls to navigate their way into rapidly changing landscape. Mondo.NYC hosted its inaugural music industry summit in New York on September 14-18, offering three days of panel discussions and presentations at New York University and five nights of access to music showcases and parties in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Mondo.NYC filled a void left by the New Music Seminar (NMS) and College Media Journal (CMJ), two long-running annual conferences that did not happen this year. Mondo.Day offered more than 60 business workshops, panels, seminars, and events addressing critical issues impacting music creation, commerce, technology and innovation. Mondo.Night offered participants free admission to more than a dozen music venues in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.
