Pollstar Live included several roundtable discussions:
New Overtime Rules & The Effects On The Concert Industry (Marla Frank, Frank Productions).
Fostering A Safer Live Event and Entertainment Industry (Jim Digby, Entertainment Safety Alliance)
Insurance: Latest Trends in Entertainment Coverage (Peter Tempkins, HUB International Insurance Services).
Hacking Sustainability: The Basics Of Event Sustainability. How To Do It And Why Bother? (Michael Martin, Effect Partners; Brian Yost, Live Nation).
Settlements 101: How To Figure The Numbers (Chuck Randall, tour manager KORN, Alice In Chains).
U.S. Immigration Woes: New Fee Changes and Filing Challenges Affecting Touring Artists (Brande Lindsey, Global Access World-Wide Entertainment Visas).
Current Legal Trends In Live Performance (Lauren Spahn, Shackelford, Bown, McKinley & Norton).
Flaregun: Bringing Festival Apps and User Experience To The Next Level (Keith Crutchfield, Ken Deans, Flaregun).
The roundtable sessions are a great way to obtain focused information on very specific topics, and to do it in a private, candid setting. Over the years, Pollstar Live roundtables have served as workstations for learning how to book or sell musical acts, provide backstage amenities, handle visa concerns, the rigging of lights and sound, and onsite safety concerns.
