This is one of those events that EVERY SINGLE ARTIST SHOULD ATTEND! Not just be there, but be prepared. Where and when else could an artist have access to over 900 DJs?! My Core DJ family gets it in like no one else (radio/clubs/mixtapes/touring/tv) but you get access to not only my Core DJ family, but ALL DJs. If you're an artist or work in marketing/brand promotions or you're in artist management/PR - this is your best opportunity to effectively reach into a massive gathering of DJs to drive exposure to your music/product. 900 DJs in one place at one time.
My tips for artists: start preparing now. Make sure you have merchandise (tee shirts, posters, CDs, stickers, etc), but step your game up and get some quality material. The last thing you want to do is hand 900 DJs a CDR with Sharpie writing scrawled on it. Get units pressed professionally (visit www.nationwidedisc.com for great quality and good prices or to just compare to others). As a DJ, I don't personally want to walk around with a huge stack of CDs all day so I prefer artists give me flash drives on a lanyard. Check out www.pexagontech.com to consider getting custom flash drives made with your name and logo. Everybody loves free tee-shirts and what better way to promote yourself than on the backs of 900 DJs?! Don't get that cheap and crappy press on/iron on garbage. Step your game up and get quality screenprinted tees made. They're not as expensive as you might think and they last forever. Personally I use www.teesfortexas.com for all of my tees. Their prices are excellent, turnaround time is fantastic, and the quality is second to none. You can visit www.teesfortexas.com to compare to a local screenprint shop in your area.
