Entertainment Management Conference Takes Desautels by Storm


Desautels’ Bronfman building opened its doors to the unique and competitive world of the entertainment industry by hosting the first Entertainment Management Conference (EMC) from February 1st to 2nd.

… The first day of the conference allowed the participants to learn about the different facets of the entertainment industry from some of the field’s most prestigious names. The keynote speakers included President and Co-Founder of Just for Laughs, Andy Nulman (BCom’83), and CEO and Founder of INK Entertainment, Charles Khabouth.

The group was composed of Desautels’ Manuela Gonzalez, U2 Management; Aylam Hofstein, U1 Management; Junyi Liu, U1 Management, as well as JMSB’s Anthony D’Urbano, U3 Marketing and Phillippe Ostiguy, U2 Marketing. Together they devised a social media platform that played to the concept of brand ambassadors that D’Urbano claimed “would personify the evenko brand on any university campus.”
