INFLUENCES…ASPEN IN DECEMBER

November 4, 2013

Do you read? I do…a lot.  Not fiction (which I should)…mostly business, marketing, social media (also known as marketing), and biographies. Two of this year’s standouts are Sleepless in Hollywood: Tales From the New Abnormal in the Movie Business” by movie producer Lynda Obst and Blockbusters: Hit-making, Risk-taking, and the Big Business of Entertainmentby Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School, Anita Elberse.

The big news here is that both Anita Elberse and Lynda Obst will be guests at this year’s Aspen Live Conference, December 12-15, 2013 at the St. Regis, Aspen.

If you till haven’t registered (hard to imagine), it isn’t too late.  We have 26 spots remaining, but believe based on the above they will go fast.  Register TODAY at http://www.aspenlive.com.  Follow us on Twitter: @AspenLive, and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aspenlive…and me on Twitter: @jimlewi and Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jim.lewi?fref=ts.

ASPEN NEWS

October 17, 2012

We have a new Aspen “family member”.  He’s the king of streaming, Hank Neuberger and he’s speaking in Aspen.  Check this out.  http://www.digitalmusicnews.com/permalink/2012/121015acl

You won’t just love the Aspen Live Conference (December 13-16) because it has been around for 16-years.  You won’t just love the people, atmosphere, meetings, social events, speakers, and more.  You will love being part of this family of ours.

16-years of doing business together, hearing from some of the greatest minds of our time, and most importantly, each of us having Aspen in common.  That’s what’s made this event so special for all these years. You could think about it another way, half our group doesn’t ski or board.  They actually come to meet people, talk about ideas and bring a fresh approach to the New Year.  But we learned early on, what’s most important is the hang. 

2012 promises more of the same.  If you have anything to do with the music space, or touch music in anyway, register today @ http://www.aspenlive.com.   You won’t regret it.  Use a “life-line” and call a friend that’s attended.  They will tell you the same.

So here’s some of the dirt.  Scott Tobias and the Voice Media Group are bringing back the Aspen Billiards party.  Something we have all missed for years is now scheduled for Friday, December 14th @ Aspen Billiards and Eric’s Bar from 7:30 – 9:30pm. 

Adler Integrated Media will be working the full-court press on their “Aspen Integrated” day Saturday, December 15th, and will start the meeting portion of the event Thursday, December 13th with “Inside The Agent’s Studio”, the guest… The Agency Group’s North American President, Steve Martin… the moderator, Square Peg Concert’s Dan Steinberg.

This year, we have the guy who not only invented online ticketing; he has had second chance with the dice with Ticketfly, who now has over 500 clients and a whole bunch of new funding.  We will hear from Ticketfly’s CEO, Andrew Dreskin

For those of you who come in Wednesday, there is the annual Peter Tempkins hosted dinner @ Hickory House (our Vegan family members may want to bring a snack), Thursday, December 13th after our meetings, our town host Michael Goldberg and his staff at the Belly Up will be throwing down from 7-9PM. 

And believe it or not, there’s more to be announced soon so stay tuned.

Hope to see in Aspen!

Jim
