Country Radio Seminar 38 offers education, networking in one-day packageIn an effort to open its doors to those who normally could not commit to the three full days of Country Radio Seminar 38 (CRS-38), Country Radio Broadcasters, Inc. (CRB) is once again offering attendees the option of purchasing the Spring Town Meeting package.
The Spring Town Meeting, sponsored by BMI, will be held on Thursday, March 1, 2007. This special offer is specifically designed to give music industry professionals the opportunity to participate in a portion of the convention at a nominal cost. The initiative will include a panel discussion, performances and great networking opportunities.
Registration for the Spring Town Meeting package is only $85 until February 2, 2007. The on-site price after February 2 will be $110. The package will encompass the following segments:
Hispanic Study Presentation (2:00 PM - 3:00 PM) - The results from the first-ever study of Hispanic Americans and their relationship with Country Radio and Country Music are in!

No Holds Barred (Rap Session) (3:15 PM - 4:10 PM) - Sit back and relax for an open, honest discussion with the gatekeepers in YOUR business.

"Country radio remains the primary source of exposure for Country songs, recordings and artists. Country Radio Broadcasters is providing this low cost way for all those in the Country Music industry who cannot attend the entire Country Radio Seminar to interact with radio stations who attend from all over America," said Ed Salamon, Country Radio Broadcasters' Executive Director. "I often hear misconceptions repeated about how radio selects and programs its music, and The Spring Town Meeting is an excellent opportunity for writers, producers, artists and others to talk directly to radio. This year's Spring Town Meeting attendees will also be the first in the industry to hear about the Country Radio Broadcasters' new study opportunities for Country music with Hispanics."
CRS-38 will be held February 28 through March 2, 2007 at the Nashville Convention Center.
