Nashville Gears Up for 36th Annual Country Radio Seminar

Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. ® is once again getting ready for the official start of the Country Radio Seminar, this year scheduled for Wednesday, March 2 through Friday, March 4. The seminar will take place during the first officially declared "Country Radio Week," a resolution that was passed February 15, 2005 by the Council of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) March 2, 2005 -- Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc.® is once again getting ready for the official start of the Country Radio Seminar, this year scheduled for Wednesday, March 2 through Friday, March 4. The seminar will take place during the first officially declared "Country Radio Week," a resolution that was passed February 15, 2005 by the Council of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County.

The Country Radio Seminar has become known as the market week for the Country industry as labels and vendors rollout their new products to radio during this time. Because it is the largest professional gathering of the Country music industry each year, many companies use the week to plan other events as well, taking advantage of all the people in town for CRS. Country radio promotes Nashville tourism daily by broadcasting information about our city and attractions. It is the primary medium for the exposure of Country music, an endeavor that employs many Nashvillians as artists, writers and producers.

CRS-36 provides continuing education, vital in this time of change, for industry professionals, artists, programmers, promotions, sales and media. The panel discussions and their panelists, along with the session topics, are decided by the CRS Agenda Committee. The committee is made up of program and music directors, artist and general managers, account and record executives and representatives from distribution companies, syndicated radio and internet companies from a vast range of Country radio stations throughout the United States.

In addition to the annual convention staples such as programming and promotion panels, research presentations, discussions, the town meeting, the working breakfast and others, the CRS-36 agenda will also focus on present critical and controversial industry issues.

CRS-36 will include over two dozen presentations, along with boot camps where individuals get the chance to go one on one with industry experts, as well as luncheon and dinner concerts. It will provide attendees multiple networking opportunities at various day and after-hours gatherings as well as showcase some of Country music’s best talent at live entertainment event events.

Ed Salamon, Executive Director of CRB, said, "With the Country Radio Seminar, the Country Radio Broadcasters has accomplished something unique. There is no comparable convention that brings together radio and the music industry for any other single format. The CRS has helped to grow Country radio and as a result, given a greater platform to all who depend on Country radio for exposure."
