Play MPE® to Participate in Sony Music Canada CCMA Country Music Week Event
Vancouver, BC – August 6, 2010 – Destiny Media Technologies (OTCBB: DSNY) is very pleased to announce that it will be participating in a music meeting and party with Sony Music Canada at the Canadian Country Music Association’s Country Music Week on September 10th in Edmonton. Music programmers from across Canada will attend at the Sony Showcase at the Art Gallery of Alberta.
Warren Copnick, Sony Director of National Promotion Radio / Video, has played an active role not only in the Canadian Country Industry as supporter of its music and artists, but has been heavily involved with careers of some of this format's biggest international artists as well as many of Canada's biggest artists' careers. He is a two-time winner of the CCMA Label person of the year, and currently is a sitting member of the CCMA Board of Directors.
The Play MPE® team recently completed a tour of over sixty major market radio stations in cities across Canada to show the advantages of the Play MPE® pre-release music network. Following the momentum from the successful tours, Play MPE® continues to further its contact with Canadian radio programmers at the CCMA's Music Week.
Comments Play MPE®'s VP Label and Radio Relations, Michael Becker, “The Country format has been so supportive of MPE and has our biggest adoption numbers (99.2%) in the US, so it only makes sense for us to have a presence at the CCMAs. Sony Canada has been a big supporter of Play MPE® and we appreciate Warren Copnick inviting us to be part of one of his legendary presentations.”
