India’s leading Talent Management agency, TM Talent Management, has partnered WOW Awards & Convention Asia 2017 as an Associate Partner.
As part of this Strategic Association, TM Talent management will curate the LIVE Asia Summit as well as host a TM Jam Room at Event Show Asia — the co-located Expo of WOW Awards and Convention Asia 2017. The LIVE Asia Summit will take place on July 7 and 8 at Hotel Pullman New Delhi Aerocity.
LIVE Asia Summit is designed to be the definitive meeting platform for organisations and professionals involved in the LIVE Entertainment Industry in Asia to tap the true potential of the business through shared learnings and collaborations. With the advent of digital in the way entertainment is commercialised, LIVE has emerged to be the most important medium. And in that, Asia, though largely fragmented, is one of the fastest growing and rapidly evolving markets in the world. And yet, for most players in the space, it is a lonely journey driven by sheer passion. Artistes, management and booking agencies, music labels, promoters and festival organisers, IP owners and investors, pubs, clubs, restaurants to large purpose built venues, brands and media are all creating their own independent paradigms. The platform will also serve as the perfect facilitator of interactions between the Indian and UAE industry.

So much has happened in the last year in the area of live entertainment, and the learnings are going to be very interesting for anyone in the industry. New IP’s were launched, old ones shifted base, while artists showcased brilliant performances at a level never seen before. There is so much to talk about. And with the personalities who are part of these very exciting sessions, I think we’re putting forward something quite exemplary.”
