Saturday, January 5th at 595 North Avenue in Atlanta,GA, I had the pleasure of networking with 500+ established industry professionals. There was a montage of writers, models, actors, managers, musicians, designers, entrepreneurs, and film directors. In the crowd you could see people exchanging ideas, information, business cards, and tips on how to succeed in the competitive market in Atlanta and beyond.
The Entertainment Industry Connection was a half-day event, beginning at 4 pm and going on past 9 pm. The agenda entailed speed networking with professional panelists, a runway exhibition with leading Atlanta designers, live performances by upcoming urban talent, as well as forums in fashion, film, and music.
So many key players made this event possible, here are just a few of the people I had the pleasure of meeting. Do Google them when you get a chance!
