How to Win Friends and Influence Promoters


09 Sep 2019

5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A seminar on gig promotion through social media and other forms of advertising.

People sharing digital advertising skills

The MU is hosting a free seminar in Belfast on gig promotion in September 2019.   Come along and polish up your skills on social media and other forms of advertising to help you sell more tickets and attract bigger audiences.

The session will be delivered by Manchester Promoter, Jay Taylor (Night & Day). Jay will take you through the promotional journey from booking and announcing a show, to selling tickets across different platforms, and walk-ups on the night.

Jay will also offer advice on how artists can work with in-house promoters to reach new fans and sell tickets beyond their existing fanbase.

Who is this event for?

The session will be useful to new and emerging artists, who book and promote their own shows. The content will also prove valuable to more established artists who are keen to explore ways of growing their existing fanbase.

Advice will relate to both headline and support shows, one-off gigs and tours.
