Deadline has Passed

The 5th annual Music Business Empowerment Conference returns to Atlanta September 13-15. Bringing together a cross section of DJs, Publicists, Media Outlets and Executives, the MBE Conference creates an intimate networking experience for aspiring talent and industry professionals.

This year’s conference will include 2 Days of informative discussions with panelists from Interscope Records, Atlantic Records, Def Jam, iHeart Radio and MORE. Conference will also include a new artist showcase featuring rising Hip Hop, Pop, and Inspirational talent.

As a promotional partner, Makin' It Magazine will be sponsoring 5 artists to Perform for Free at this year’s event and will be picking up to 20 attendees to receive free ONE on ONE meetings with conference panelists, including A&Rs from Atlantic Records, Def Jam, etc.
