TMO at Music Cities Convention 2017

October 27, 2017

TMO Director Brendon Anthony (joined by City of Austin Music & Entertainment Division Manager Erica Shamaly and Dention CVB Music Liason Julie Glover) recently traveled to Memphis, TN to take part in the Music Cities Conference, where he promoted the TMO’s new “Music Friendly Communities” program, as well as studied best practices to help strengthen music communities all around the state. Sound Diplomacy’s Music Cities Conference provided leaders in the field an opportunity to meet and discuss best practices for supporting their local music industries.

"I was proud to take representatives from Austin and Denton along to contribute to the conversation and form partnerships with others seeking to affect change in their own cities," Anthony said.

Topics raised in panel and breakout discussions ranged from consistent noise ordinance enforcement, to effective measurement techniques, as well as up to date philosophies regarding the challenges of effective communication within city government.
