The 3rd Annual SUMC Urban Music Conference is set for June 1-4, 2005 in Atlanta, GA as a celebratory tribute to Black Music Month. The Renaissance Atlanta Hotel Downtown will act as host to the 2005 conference and its participants.

All genres of urban music are accepted.

Past conference sponsors include Heineken, BME Recordings, and Crown Royal - making the 2004 conference a huge success. Participating record labels have included, EMI, DefJam, Capitol, BMG, Jive, Warner Brothers and Sobe entertainment.
