By all accounts, Pollstar Live! 2017 was a hit, and our biggest conference yet.

Production Live! kicked things off with the best in the events production business, followed by countless networking opportunities, a keynote from Alice Cooper and manager Shep Gordon, and closing out with the Pollstar Awards hosted by the always entertaining Justin Willman and the North American debut of the Ronnie James Dio hologram.

See below for conference panel write-ups, party photos and the Pollstar Awards winners (as they come in).
