The United States' largest conference for songwriters, composers, artists and producers, ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO offers a rare opportunity for aspiring music creators to learn from and collaborate with some of the most successful and creative people in the music industry. "When we started the ASCAP EXPO, the vision was always to create a sense of community and offer songwriters a chance to network and hear from their peers and idols. One our EXPO high points was the presentation last year of the inaugural ASCAP "Key of Life" Award to Stevie Wonder and the chance to hear him perform and talk about his life and music," said ASCAP Executive Vice President/ Chief Marketing Officer Lauren Iossa. "That was an incredible moment, and every year EXPO attendees have one-of-a-kind opportunities like this to be inspired to take the next step in their careers." Other highlights included thrilling performances at ASCAP's Annual Membership Meeting from Grammy and ASCAP Award-winning singer-songwriter Michael McDonald and chart-topping country music songwriter Ashley Gorley. During the three-day event, attendees also heard from other top songwriters such as Dave Bassett (Elle King, "Ex's & Oh's"), Poo Bear (Justin Bieber, Usher, Chris Brown), Bibi Bourelly (Rihanna), James Fauntleroy (Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars), J.T. Harding (Kenny Chesney, "Bar at the End of the World," "Somewhere with You" Keith Urban), Matt Jenkins (Kenny Chesney, Pink, Old Dominion), Lindy Robbins (Jason Derulo, "Want to Want Me"), Malik Yusef (Beyoncé, Kanye West) and more. Weighty topics were also covered, such as the urgent need for music licensing reform with two members of Congress, Rep. Karen Bass of California (D) and Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia (R ), ASCAP President Paul Williams and songwriter Priscilla Renea (Fifth Harmony, Selena Gomez); and the growing concern about proper credit for songwriters with Songwriters Hall of Fame member Desmond Child, songwriter Aloe Blacc and composer Alex Shapiro. Every year, ASCAP "I Create Music" EXPO participants attend creative and business-focused panels, workshops, master classes, keynotes, one-on-one sessions, networking events, state-of-the-art technology demonstrations, and performances. The ASCAP EXPO provides music creators with an unforgettable and authentic experience – real knowledge, tools, connections and a community of support and guidance they can't find anywhere else. Since its inception, the event has brought together some of music's biggest talents and most successful industry players. Previous keynote speakers include Justin Timberlake, Tom Petty, John Mayer, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Quincy Jones, Ludacris, Carly Simon, Sara Bareilles, Lindsey Buckingham, Randy Newman, Jackson Browne, Steve Miller, Ann and Nancy Wilson (Heart), Diplo, Big Sean, Ne-Yo, Stargate, Bill Withers, Aloe Blacc, Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and Jeff Lynne.
