After several years at the Atlantic City Convention Center, DJ Times’ annual confab of DJs, gear manufacturers, and other industry movers & shakers, the International DJ Expo heads “Back to the Boardwalk” to the glittering Trump Taj Mahal Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ from August 11-14, 2008.

After several years at the Atlantic City Convention Center, DJ Times’ annual confab of DJs, gear manufacturers, and other industry movers & shakers, the International DJ Expo heads “Back to the Boardwalk” to the glittering Trump Taj Mahal Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, NJ from August 11-14, 2008.

Recently having undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation and voted Best Hotel by the readers of Casino Player magazine, the Trump Taj Mahal will put 2008 International DJ Expo attendees right in the middle of the action, providing first-class amenities and hospitality to go hand in hand with the Expo’s world-class educational seminars and evening showcases.

Not content to rest on their laurels, Expo organizers have announced an all-new, revamped program of panels, seminars, and workshops individually geared towards both the Mobile System Operator and the Club DJ/Producer/Remixer.

“Each year, we try to offer seminar topics that always impact the DJ market, along with some looks at new trends,” says DJ Times Editor Jim Tremayne. “This year, we believe that we’ve done that again, but perhaps in more cleanly delineated fashion.”

With special concentration on cultivating clients, how to sell and market services more effectively, purchasing the best equipment on a budget, using new technology and perfecting performances, the 2008 International DJ Expo’s new and improved mobile operators program entitled Mobile System Operators: Laying The Foundations For Success will show mobile system operators how to step to the next level. Whether you’re a single mobile operator working the local Wedding and Mitzvah circuit or a multi-system owner building a business and looking at the big picture, this program offers the very best professional advice, fresh insights and unique tools to set a company apart from the rest, and help guide them up the professional ladder.

Featuring an A&R Listening Session panel hosted by some of the biggest artist & repertoire executives in the business plus exclusive networking opportunities, hands-on workshops, panels and seminars to connect DJs and Producers with the industry’s most knowledgeable and successful Talents and Business Executives, the 2008 International DJ Expo’s all-new DJ Culture & Music 2.0: Navigating the New Music Business Paradigm program is exactly what up-and-coming Club DJs, remixers and producers need to give them the insights and knowledge to get themselves to the next stage in their careers.
