On June 29th, I had the opportunity to participate at the inaugural IMPACT ’17 Conference at the University of Miami’s Watsco Center in Coral Gables, FL. As previously reported here, IMPACT ’17 is a national pop-up music, fashion, art, and technology conference where industry leaders and world-famous influencers share their stories with young spirited entrepreneurs of tomorrow. My firm, GP & Britt, assisted in the digital marketing efforts for the event. In addition, I also participated as a panelist!
The entire day was an awesome experience! The day was jam packed with an array of different panels and performances for attendees to check out. I spoke on the “Creating a Wave in Music” panel alongside fellow panelists Rico Love, Jill Strada, Abebe Lewis, Lunch Money Lewis, Lil Joe, Ted Lucas, and Matt Buser. The panel was moderated by YesJulz, and we covered a range of different topics such as branding, the rise of streaming, getting started in the biz, and lots more. All the panelists brought a sundry of information to the forefront that was very rewarding for attendees.
Following the day of panels, the event closed out with a performance from DJ Khaled. Not bad, for IMPACT’s kickoff event eh? It should also be noted that Love & Hip Hop Miami was in the building filming for its new season, so stay tuned for when that hits the small screen. Overall, I had an amazing time and am looking forward to next year’s festivities! Peep the flicks below and be sure to watch the recap.
