The Agents’ Panel: Repping from a Distance
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Ballroom B
Moderator: Robert Levine
No firm handshake-deals, no face-to-face negotiation. And yet artists still need agents as go-betweens if they want to get their career rolling. This panel of top talent agents will discuss the re-tooling of business-as-usual during the pandemic, imaginative new approaches to finding talent and spreading the word about their latest “finds.” The agents that stayed at the top of their game adapted quickly to the new landscape, became wizards of Zoom meetings and events, and figured out how to cyber-spin the connection between artists, audiences and labels. Come meet the masters of adversity!
