Beatport - Essential Insider Knowledge

Speakers: Helen Sartory (SVP Creator Services, Beatport), Susanne Hazendonk (VP Marketing, Spinnin' Records)
Moderator: Kristin Schrot (DJ Miss Nine)

Using Beatport to Amplify Your Music

Beatport is one of the most important sources for DJs and producers. On the one hand, artists use the platform as an online crate-digging tool; on the other, they use it to get their music downloaded by other artists. But how do you come out on top in a situation where there’s a sea of DJs is all trying to achieve the same as you? How do you distinguish yourself and your music? SVP of Creator Services Helen Sartory stars in the Essential Insider Knowledge Beatport session on ADE Wednesday. Alongside Sartory, other speakers from the user end of Beatport will join this keynote session, so stay tuned for more announcements.
