“We thought we’d roll out a ‘get to know us online soft presentation’ for 2022. Next year we’ll be back in Miami during MMW with an exclusive invite-only banger event that most know us for. Our EDMA deck awards are a work of art.” – Sean “Hollywood” Hamilton, iHeartMedia & Creator/Co-Executive Producer of EDMAs
