Trade secrets

Aug 16, 2000 at 12:00 am
Even though creative musical types have a tendency to shy away from the business side of their art, contacts and contracts are key to making a living. The Women’s International Investment Network is presenting an international music and entertainment trade show set to occur Sept. 6-10 at Cobo Center. All forms of industry folk — artists, media, publishers, union reps, promoters and digital heads — will converge upon the center for five days of schmoozing, business card shuffling and ringing cell phones. And it’s all hosted by former Piston John “Spider” Salley. Reserve a space by calling 313-927-8235 or register online.
