Booked Flights from UK for 2019 Rally

Post by RHicks » Fri Dec 21, 2018 8:12 am

Hi folks

As an introduction my name is Rob Hicks and I'm based in the UK. I had some modest success in the UK sync market around a decade ago whilst I had a day job. I'm now writing full time thanks to the sale of my (day job) business and very much looking forward to attending my first TAXI Rally in November 2019.

I know I'm well ahead of the game here but I have just booked my flights as the UK carriers have pretty aggressive sales around this time of the year. Desperately hoping TAXI don't change the publicised dates (7th to 10th Nov 2019) because I'm locked in now.

Very much looking forward to meeting with everyone and escaping the UK rain.

Cheers

Rob

Welcome Rob!

It's great that you've already booked the Road Rally, I can't think of a better way to start Taxi than with the Forum and the Rally.

Good luck to you.

Hi Rob, I'm in the UK also, Brentwood, Essex. I attended my first rally last year and will be attending again this year. I would highly recommend staying at the Westin LAX where the rally is held as most of my contacts I made at the lobby bar. I had 90 minutes over a burger and bear with a library owner who dropped some great info. It is a bit pricy buy taxi will offer a discount on rooms later in the year. This time around I'll be staying for two weeks as I have other studios to visit and producers to network with outside the rally this year.

Hope to see you there.

I hope you music tells a story.

Hey! I just bought my ticket from Melbourne Australia for the 2019 Road Rally! I'll be in LA for a week so that I can organise some songwriting sessions with some of the connections I've already built whilst I'm there, and connect with the APRA LA office as well.
Sooo looking forward to it!

Hi!

Are the dates for Road Rally 2019 really confirmed already to be 7th to 10th Nov 2019? Isn't it usually the first weekend of November?

I'd also book flights as soon as dates are confirmed by someone from Taxi.

Here is a link to the website where it confirms the dates.https://www.taxi.com/taxi-road-rally-2018.php
All the details on there are for the 2018 rally, but at the top of the page it says the dates for 2019.

I think Michael Laskow mentioned in a Taxi TV episode that the dates are later this year to avoid Halloween.

I'm from the UK too but unfortunately, I don't have enough money to attend the rally! I have about £200 in my savings and I am sure that won't cover flight and accommodation costs! Ha.
Maybe next year, eh? ;)
