Nominations Now Open For Pollstar’s ‘Women Of Live,” Celebrating Women Transforming Live Music Biz
By: Pollstar Staff
Pollstar today announced its inaugural Women of Live franchise, honoring women who are transforming the concert business in meaningful ways. We will celebrate 25 honorees, with one executive named Woman Of The Year.
While the music industry is still grappling with issues of equality and diversity, women are rising to positions of leadership and having major impact throughout the live business. Pollstar is making it a priority to make sure women are represented in all of its franchises, but the March 30 issue (digital edition available March 27) will specifically celebrate the accomplishments and work of women in the industry.
Female industry pros on the promotion, agency, management, tech or marketing sides are all eligible to be nominated. Nominations are open now until Wednesday, Feb. 19.
An event celebrating the inaugural Women Of Live honorees will be held at a date and location to be announced.
This Women Of Live franchise follows Pollstar’s Impact: NextGen franchise, which honored up-and-coming industry players who are making – and will continue to make – the biggest splash in the live business in the coming years. This followed the Top Tour Managers feature, which recognized and paid tribute to some of the most noted road dogs in the business and Impact 50, which celebrated the 50 concert industry players making the biggest impact on the live business.Since its founding in 1981, Pollstar has been the only dedicated trade publication covering the worldwide concert industry. Pollstar data is the leading resource for the touring industry encompassing box office numbers, routing and directories. Pollstar produces a weekly print magazine, publishes daily content to Pollstar.com and its “Daily Pulse” e-newsletter, and executes the world largest gathering of live music industry professionals at Pollstar Live! which in 2019 celebrated its 30th anniversary. The annual conference features the industry’s most important executives and thought leaders on a variety of panels, keynotes and networking opportunities. The conference culminates with the Pollstar Awards! which highlight the most impactful companies, executives, tours, and achievements over the past year.
