Added Ravenel Agency Founder/CEO Amber Ravenel, “It was important for me to bring “The Deal Makers Conference” to the Midwest after discovering the wealth of undiscovered talent here. I wanted to expose Cleveland, OH to the real deal makers of the business. My aim was for attendees is to not only learn from seasoned professionals but to gain insight on the do’s and don’ts of the business. Participants also were afforded the opportunity to get a record deal on the spot; all of which has happened at the DMC to my delight.”
