Music, Brews & Partnership at the 2018 AEC Convention

2018 AEC ConventionEach summer, Alliance Entertainment (AEC) hosts their annual sales conference in South Florida. The four day event is for distributors, vendors and labels to mingle and meet with the AEC staff and to present upcoming priorities and ideas, in exclusive meetings and during the vendor fair.

Music, Brews & Partnership at the 2018 AEC ConventionThe Orchard hosts an evening event on Wednesday, June 27th. This year we took over the Funky Buddha Brewery to present our past successes and releases as well as focus on our upcoming priority titles. We also had the privilege of highlighting our talent with performances by The Royal Potato Family artist, decker. and Mother Earth artist, Survivorman – Les Stroud. Overall, the night was a blast and emphasized our great partnership with music, BBQ and brews.

On Saturday the 30th, all of the vendors/distributors/labels build their convention booths to talk with the AEC staff and accounts about upcoming priorities, new releases and campaigns. The face time spent directly with the AEC team and customers is very valuable, drawing attention and interest to our incredible new music.

We are so grateful to participate and engage with our physical partners every year and look forward to returning in 2019!
