International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA) Announces 2012 Award Nominees

It’s almost that time of year again, as the annual IEBA conference is fast approaching. On October 7-9, 2012, live entertainment industry professionals from across the country will gather in Nashville, TN for the 42nd annual IEBA conference.

The team at Neste Event Marketing looks forward to the conference each year.  The conference provides a great opportunity for networking.  The talent showcases provide the talent buyers and event managers with the opportunity to see if any of the showcased artist’s would be good options to book for their upcoming events.  The educational panels and seminars are not to be missed!  They feature the industry’s best and brightest professionals coming together to educate each other and attendees of the current ways of the entertainment industry.

Check out this video of highlights to get a glimpse into the conference:

This year, IEBA will be inducting, Charley Pride (artist), Ray Pilszak (entertainment publisher), and Joe LaGuardia (posthumously) into the IEBA Hall of Fame.

With the announcement of the IEBA Industry Awards nominees, we were thrilled to hear that our very own Neste Event Marketing President, Gil Cunningham, is nominated in the “Fair Buyer of the Year” category!  Also, Panhandle Productions’ Larry Werner is nominated for “International Talent Buyer of the Year.”  Larry is the Producer of the Big Valley Jamboree festival in Camrose, AB.
