3. Participate, participate, participate.
Get involved in any kind of interactive activities that the DJ Expo is hosting—and there are plenty. (This year, check the “Mobile Networking Party” on Aug. 10 and the “DJ of the Year” competition on Aug. 12.) Getting your hands on things and interacting are the greatest ways to learn and to be involved.
“DJ Expo attendees are also recommended to attend the keynote presentations/Q&A with performance legends,” says Hollman. “Past interviewees at the DJ Expo have included Jazzy Jeff, Lil’ Jon, Jellybean Benitez and Grandmaster Flash. Their fascinating stories, and success secrets are hugely inspirational.”
