Q: Why should I attend the SF MusicTech Summit?
A: Are you interested in meeting and interacting with many of the leading lights from the music/technology community? Learning about the bleeding edge? Finding business opportunities with folks who will be leading the way into the evolving music/technology ecosystem? Helping to establish and participate in a Northern California music and related technology market? If so, the SF MusicTech Summit is an event for you.
Q: If we take pictures, what tags we should use?
A: Photos from the SF MusicTech Summit should be tagged “sfmusictech”
Q: Will there be Wifi at the event?
Q: Why the Hotel Kabuki?
A: The Hotel Kabuki is a centrally located Rock & Roll Hotel recently renovated by Chip Conley and Joie De Vivre Hotels. It is a favorite hotel for performers at the nearby legendary Fillmore Auditorium, the new classic Yoshi’s San Francisco, and more. Joie De Vivre lives by their corporate mission statement, “Creating Opportunities to Celebrate the Joy of Life”. Plus, it was at the first Joie De Vivre Hotel The Phoenix that my wife and I met. Then we stayed at the Kabuki (at the time, the Miyako) for months when transitioning out of a flooded apartment. So when we heard that “Joie De Vivre” took over management and fixed the place up, it seemed a natural for the conference to be held at such a comfortable hotel, a conference which celebrates the joy of music, and those who build technologies to help people better enjoy their music listening experience.
Q: Can you tell me a little about the Japantown area where the conference and the Hotel Kabuki can be found?
A: You can find much information by following this link to Japantown Information. But suffice it to say that it is one of the 3 remaining Japantowns in the United States, located about a mile west of Union Square, and home to many Japanese restaurants, bars, stores, and a vibrant Pacific culture rarely found on this side of the Pacific.
Q. The Summit is on Tuesday, when should out-of-towners arrive in SF?
A. No later than your 3:00 hotel check-in on Monday. Our first official event is a pre-show schmooze at Yoshi’s on Monday at 5pm, and folks tend to really enjoy meeting and reconnecting. But we strongly suggest you come earlier and stay later to experience SF MusicTech Week.
Q. Where can I get logos and graphics?
A. Spread the word with our logos, graphics and web banners.
Q. Are there any volunteers positions?
A. Yes, we do have a variety of volunteer positions prior to and during the summit. Please fill out a volunteer application, and we will follow up with you shortly. Please note that we receive more requests than we have positions, so if you’d like to be guaranteed participation in the event and for the duration of the event – we recommend that you buy a ticket.
Q. Can I apply for a press pass?
A. Yes, press passes are available for experienced journalists who intend to cover the SF MusicTech Summit. Please fill out a press pass application.
