Pollstar Live! 2011

The Second Annual Pollstar Live! conference will be held February 4-5, 2011 at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live.

Pollstar Live! has been designed to maximize the use of attendee's time with a compact schedule at an affordable price that reflects today's economic reality.

All registrations include admission to all panel sessions, the Opening Reception, a Saturday buffet lunch, and a ticket to the 22nd Annual Pollstar Awards which will be held on February 5 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.

The JW Marriott Los Angeles at LA Live, the newest luxury hotel in Southern California, will be the headquarters for Pollstar Live! The conference will take over the entire hotel and with more than 800 rooms everyone who acts promptly should have no problem getting a room.

And here is the best part. All of the hotel's deluxe rooms are priced at the recession busting rate for as little as $185 per night. This rate, which is virtually unheard of for a four or five star hotel in Los Angeles, is only available to delegates registered for the conference and who reserve their rooms through the event website.

The program for Pollstar Live! will emphasize the need to focus on improving the fan experience as a way of growing audiences. Any industry that takes its customers for granted does so at its peril.

Live music continues to be an important part of people's lives but it would be foolhardy to think that some industry practices are not steadily alienating more and more fans without effect on our future business. The goal of Pollstar Live! is to not only shed light on some of these practices but to work towards developing an industry consensus that change is needed. We expect to see newcomers and many of the same faces as in past events as we take a fresh look at the future. A number of large companies and organizations will also take advantage of this global gathering to have their own private meetings in the days surrounding Pollstar Live!

The Pollstar Awards

The 22nd Annual Pollstar Awards will be held in Los Angeles at Club Nokia at the L.A. Live entertainment complex on Saturday, February 5.
