Promo Only Summer Sessions Heats Up Atlantic City!

The yearly summer gathering of influential radio programmers, mix show DJs, producers and record label execs held court in Atlantic City at Harrah’s Casino Resort for Promo Only’s 11th Annual Summer Sessions. An event that’s been key in launching new artists and breaking hit records, with panels, presentations and awards, has become one of the industry’s best networking events. Congrats to Cary Vance, John Parker, Jim Robinson and Pete Werner on another well attended event that continues to have an impact on an industry that’s changing on a daily basis.
