            NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Songwriters from around the world will participate in the first "IC Virtual Songwriter Showcase", an online music industry gathering from Sept. 21-22, 2013 (Saturday-Sunday).

            Hosted by Nashville-based Indie Connect, the two-day online event will give emerging, professional and hit tunesmiths the opportunity to pitch original songs to music publishers, film and TV Music supervisors, producers, and artists. Attendees also can receive song evaluations by professionals and view live and taped educational presentations covering a wide range of industry topics. A trade show will feature booths by leading music industry product and service providers.

            "This past February, Indie Connect ushered in a new world of music industry education and networking with our 'IC Virtual Music Conference and Expo'," said Indie Connect CEO/founder Vinny Ribas. "The event was a huge success, receiving praise from attendees, virtual exhibitors and speakers alike."

            Ribas added that he expects more than 1,000 songwriters from around the world to register for the "IC Virtual Songwriter Showcase". It will be similar to Indie Connect's winter conference with dozens of speakers, as well as live showcases, business presentations, and 24/7 networking.

            "Our virtual events are revolutionary because they are completely online," Ribas added. "Everyone can participate from the comfort of their own homes, studios or offices by just logging in. Because the event is online, the cost to participate is far below that of a land-based music or songwriter conference."

            Attendees can network, check out the presentations, and visit the trade show for $47.  Songwriters can showcase their music with a trade show booth and participate in song pitches for $147. Music-related businesses can showcase their products or services for $247.
