Manitoba Music is partnering with the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED) to produce a Manitoba Aboriginal artists showcase at the Reservation Economic Summit in Las Vegas on March 13, 2013. The showcase will be a part of the conference's VIP Reception (invite only), which will play host to tribal leaders, representatives from Native American casinos, and business leaders from across the USA.
Don Amero, Desiree Dorion, and Tracy Bone will be participating in the showcase. Manitoba Music will also have a trade show booth at the conference and each of the artists will have the opportunity to market their services to delegates on March 12, 13, and 14.
The showcase is part of the Aboriginal Music Program's market development initiatives, which promote Manitoba's wealth of Aboriginal talent on the national stage. Through events like these, Manitoba Music is able to increase the level of awareness and connectedness between our province’s music industry and the broader national and international industry, which is vital to the career advancement of Manitoba's Aboriginal artists and industry professionals.
The Aboriginal Music Program is made possible by the generous support of the Government of Canada, the Province of Manitoba, FACTOR, and Manitoba Film & Music.
