The third annual Rolling out Innovation, Digital and Entertainment Conference powered by Steed Media Group officially kicked off Friday morning, Sept. 6, in Atlanta.
The spirit of empowerment and achievement permeated the Loudermilk Conference Center in Atlanta, the site of the two-day event. Conference participants are excited for the opportunity to have real-time conversations with thought leaders and experts in their respective fields and have a chance to begin to forge relationships that help to affect change in our communities.
People travel from all parts of the country to take part in this conference. Rolling out took the opportunity to speak with three first time RIDE attendees. Check out what they had to say.
Danielle Jeter from Philadelphia, who is the founder of Women In Media, was an excited first-time RIDE Con attendee.
“I’ve heard RIDE is a great time and that it is a growing platform that attracts a lot of influencers in media and entertainment,” Jeter said. “I work within those two industries, so this is a great place for me to be. I am expecting awesome networking opportunities and also great business advice to grow and scale my businesses.”
Atlanta native Ayo Aladesanmi another first-time RIDE attendee shared his thoughts.
“I’ve been looking forward to coming out to the RIDE conferences to get an idea of what Black people can do to support the industries and enterprises.” Aladesanmi said. “I want to get plugged in, in a deep way to all the different ideas and faster growing trends in the Atlanta area. Since I’ve been here it has been nothing but that.”
Producer VC Beatz from Detroit said: “I expected the opportunity to meet established individuals in my field and related fields in order to get advice to help propel me to the next level with my dreams and aspirations.”
