EDMBiz Las Vegas Recap, We Made It Back Alive;)

My buddy Rob Annalyze, Erica, Collin and I recently hit up the EDM Biz Conference in Las Vegas during June.  We had 3 days of shenanigans including a whole lotta TTR Gaming at our exhibit which was sponsored by Juice Recordings and Jamvana. Event_EdmBiz_2016_Rob_Wes

In addition to that, a bunch of great food and good times at parties all week were had....and of course, it was strictly business;)  We met and heard from all sorts of fun people including Frankie Bones, Tommie Sunshine, Swedish Egil, Junkie XL and even Paul Okenfold's Perfecto Mundo Tequila crew.  Check out a few photos and some event info in case you want to make it out next round.


From the Event Promoter: "Our business is an extension of our dynamic culture—innovative, influential, and fueled by community. Like our festivals, the EDMbiz experience is defined by moments, from thought-provoking panels and discussions to chance meetings. We meet, we listen, we talk, and at night, we dance".
