The conference/festival hybrid, which bills itself as “connecting, educating and inspiring the artists, entrepreneurs and creatives that shape culture and business” announced the speaker lineup on Wednesday (Sept. 4).
“We are excited this year to expand the conference aspect of A3C by providing a host of events, panels and discussions lead by top tier professionals in their industry,” co-owner of The A3C Conference, Ryan Wilson, stated via press release. “The A3C conference experience will be nothing like any conference has seen before.”
At this year’s 2019 A3C Conference, there are over 150 sessions scheduled with 250 speakers, including: producer Mike WiLL Made-It, politician Stacey Abrams (Fair Fight, Founder & Chair), fashion icon Dapper Dan, producer Just Blaze, former Def Jam head Kevin Liles (300 Entertainment Co-Founder & CEO), Lenny S.

T.I. has also just launched a podcast named, ExpediTIously, this week. “We talk about any and everything,” T.I. said during a conversation with Billboard. “And I tried to create an environment where people could speak and express themselves freely, fully, authentically, and unapologetically. We have created a space where you can speak your truth without judgment.”
