The Real Deal Sponsor Summit in Hollywood, July 31

Hey guys! - I will open this post with this:

The last Real Deal Event in April generated upwards
of $200,000 of deal values for the attendees...

what other event has done that for you?
do you really want to miss this one?

Do I really need to say more? of course it's summer and it's hot and you're maybe not in the mood to do a seminar....
AND the age old question - is this thing really worth it?

The answer speaks for itself - HMMA has been delivering results since day one and the Real Deal series is achieving more results than anything else out there today. That's because we won't settle for less. Your success is our success - end of story.

I can get all pitchy and be sales douchey with you but anyone reading this is hip to that and really just wants the straight truth. Musicians and content producers have it tough enough out there and are the most "bottom line" and savvy folks I've had the pleasure of working with. So I will always respectfully speak to them on the level.

HMMA knows this and has designed events like the Real Deal to deliver more and more value that attendees can take to the bank. We've effectively broken down walls and provided access to our members to people and networks that they simply would never have access to or if they did, would take far longer to develop a workable relationship so they could actually do something.

More top level speakers and presenters and brands are being added every day and that means more resources for you. Believe me, until you try getting sponsors for your projects, you have no idea just how convoluted it is. The biggest challenge you will face is finding the right people to talk to and guess what, we're serving them up on a silver platter!

Most of you would do whatever it took to get that guitar string you needed before a gig or spend an extra 3 hours in the studio to get that little part to sound just right. The same intention would hold true for you if you are a filmmaker or event producer or any type of media creator - you demand the best and demand results.

I only wish there were things like this when I was coming up. Now that I have a chance to do something about it - I'm doing it for you guys with the HMMA
