(AllHipHop News) This July, DJs, influencers and industry executives will descend upon St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands for the Influence DJ Power Summit.
An elite selection of the most important DJ’s and Programmers from the urban and world music markets will gather on the island at the Emerald Beach Resort, for a four day and three night all-inclusive music conference experience.
The daytime programming will consist of networking events and power panels, wherein industry veterans will delve into the business, marketing and technology aspects of today's musical landscape.
The evenings will feature new artist showcases hosted by celebrity judges, a variety of nightclub parties and a summit banquet.
Guests and speakers include power players like Tony Neal (Core DJs), DJ Bill Black (Radio One), Rafael "June" Cardona (Epic Records), DJ Epps and DJ Wrekk1 (Beatz 96.3 WMBX).

Panels will be geared specifically towards strategy, business insight, and making the connections required to take full advantage of positioning within our field. We are advocating the solidarity and relationship-building that will allow professionals to expand their reach by working together. While our event will include parties, our focus is advancement- so our guests will come away sharper and better prepared. The Summit will revive what has been missing in our industry for years."
