For Immediate Release (Miami, FL) – The goal of the International Reggae Conference is to bring together members of the reggae entertainment industry for a series of informative and productive networking activities. The tremendous response we have received from all areas of the industry demonstrates the need for such an event to not only take place, but to be successful. As a nonprofit entity, we feel a keen responsibility to our sponsors and peers in the industry to ensure that the inaugural International Reggae Conference be well-planned and well-executed. With this in mind, a joint decision was made by the Board of Directors to postpone the International Reggae Conference until November 2007. The 2006 South Florida Family Reggae Festival will take place as planned.
All monies collected thus far have already been refunded to registrants and exhibitors. If you sent in a registration or exhibitor fee and have not yet been contacted by our office, please call us immediately at 305 436 9084.
This postponement allows us to spend a few more months working with our sponsors and exhibitors to better develop our workshops, panels, and showcases taking into account some of the suggestions we received from artists and media persons. We do not want even one attendee to come away feeling as if their time or money has been wasted. Many of us have been disappointed by conferences and expos that promised to move our industry forward but didn’t deliver for a variety of reasons. We will spend the next twelve months securing the panelists and participants necessary to make this event worth your while.
Please continue to check our official website www.ReggaeConference.org for further developments. On behalf of our sponsors and staff, thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you November 5, 2006 at the South Florida Family Reggae Festival, and then again at IRC 2007!
In the Spirit of Productivity and Prosperity,
Family Reggae Festival, Inc.
