Join Us At Music Biz 2016 In Nashville!

2016 is shaping up to be a wild year for the Haulix team. In addition to releasing a fully revamped version of our platform, our team will also be making a record number of live appearances at music conferences, festivals, summits, and the like. We’ve already told you about SXSW (in March) and Launch (in April), but today we’re here to share the news we will also be bringing a conversation on digital distribution and the ongoing war on piracy to Music Biz 2016 in Nashville this May!

Taking place on Wednesday, May 18, Haulix will present a panel titled ‘Promotional Distribution & Digital Security.’ Here is the full description from the Music Biz schedule:

In 2016, knowing how to securely share your new and unreleased music with industry professionals and journalists alike is one of the most important things you need to understand in order to succeed. There are a number of methods currently being used to share promotional music right now, from cloud storage services, to digital promotional platforms, streaming services like Soundcloud, and even file transfer sites. This panel will cover the status of the war on piracy and the best methods for promotional digital distribution today. We will also touch on which services allow for customization of presentation, as well as digital security (watermarking, automated takedowns, etc.).

The panel will be lead by Haulix Marketing Coordinator James Shotwell. The additional panelists, as well as their roles in the industry, will be revealed in the comings weeks.
