The Summit will run from 11am to 5pm ET June 7-8, with post-conference showcases and networking events starting at 5pm each day. June 9 will begin at 10am ET with an ICMP/AIMP “breakfast/tea” mixer, and the agenda is set to conclude by 2pm.

The Summit will be headlined by keynotes from songwriter, producer, and Big Loud founder Craig Wiseman in conversation with musician, publisher, and ASCAP Executive Vice President of Membership John Titta on June 7, and Gadi Oron, Director General of CISAC, will speak on June 9.
