“When I said earlier this year we were going to change the game, it wasn’t going to be just another tired sound bite. We meant it!” said Mobile Beat Las Vegas producer Michael Buonaccorso. “Through the tireless efforts of the whole Mobile Beat team assembled for this event, we have truly created an all new experience for 2015.”
Penn’s appearance and discussion will focus on how we are all part of a larger entertainment experience, making oneself relevant in the business even after many years, and honing your tools and your talents.
