Private Showcase Presenters

 The Private Showcase Presenters list is now updated weekly.

Below is a list of all confirmed Private Showcase Presenters for the 2018 conference. By presenter request, we do not publish contact information, although some hosts have noted their email and availability in the list below. If you know any of the hosts, feel free to reach out to them directly with a personal (not bulk!) email.

Please note that some Private Showcase Presenters have very specific parameters for showcasing in their rooms - this may include only artists from their label, artists from their geographical location, artists fitting the room theme, etc.
