4/7/13: Welcome to Las Vegas for RAIN Summit West

Paul Maloney
April 7, 2013 (All day)

It's "go" time!
Today is our twelfth-annual RAIN Summit West event at the LVH Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, kicking off the NAB Show.

We're looking forward to a great (and full!) day of panels and presentations, highlighted by two great keynotes: RAB president and CEO Erica Farber (who'll speak at 10:25a PT) and Rhapsody International president Jon Irwin (he's on at 4:15p PT).

At 2:30p PT, RAIN publisher and AccuRadio CEO Kurt Hanson will deliver his annual "State of the Industry" address.

Our day also features two unique "POV" speeches by industry thought leaders. We'll hear Triton Digital president of market development John Rosso's and TargetSpot CEO Eyal Goldwerger's take on Internet radio in 2013.

And, as we always do, we cap off the day with the RAIN Reader Cocktail Party, sponsored by Pandora. (We like these parties so much, that while it's only our 12th RSW, this'll be our 14th party!) Please join us by the pool gazebo (simply walk through the LVH casino and take the Central Tower elevators to the 3rd floor pool deck). Even if you can't make it to the Summit, we'd love to say hello to you at the cocktail party!

If you're in Vegas for the Summit, the LVH is 3000 Paradise Rd., (702) 732-5111. The Summit takes place in Ballroom C.

And if you can't make it to the Summit, we're thrilled to partner this year with TuneIn to bring you live streaming audio from RAIN Summit West (we'll do the same for RAIN Summit Orlando in September!). You can listen live (obviously, once we begin). Click the banner above, or the link here:


Plenty of Summit attendees will be tweeting. Follow using the hashtag #rainsummit.
