Flood of new contacts in country-music industry

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve made two moves that we expect to increase FargoTube‘s visibility — significantly — in the country-music industry.

First, we’ve engaged a public-relations firm, Splash! PR, to help introduce FargoTube to musicians, record labels and entertainment journalists. Splash! is based in Nashville, where most of FargoTube’s initial partners are located, so we expect many (though not all) of these introductions to be within the country-music industry.

Splash!’s principal, Vanessa Parker-Davis, has helped clients onto the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and into Entertainment Weekly magazine and the Wall Street Journal, so we’re hoping for a significant boost.

Secondly, you may have seen our press release this morning about our involvement in Next Big Nashville and Leadership Music Digital Summit 2010, which runs from September 29 to October 2 at Belmont College. F3, FargoTube and the Recording Industry Association of America are sponsoring lunch on the opening day, which we expect to draw more than 1,000 decision-makers from bands, music associations, record labels and the digital-media industry. An associated music festival is expected to draw 15,000 fans.

We’ll have at least one big banner for FargoTube and one advertisement in the program for the event. Chief Executive Officer Frank Connor, Chief Operating Officer Paul Campbell and Senior Vice President for Business Development Stephanie Miller will be at the conference to press the flesh, explain and demonstrate FargoTube and, if all goes well, bring aboard more content partners.

This post has been updated with separate estimates for attendance at the LMDS summit and the associated music festival.
