iPOP LA Founder Ron Patterson featured on the Latest Pageantry Podcast Episode

Pageantry Magazine has launched the latest episode of their entertainment industry podcast Pageantry Podcast. The podcast, Pageantry Podcast, features interviews with leaders in the pageant, fashion, modeling, prom, talent, and competition industries.

In the most recent episode, iPOP LA Founder Ron Patterson hit the airwaves to discuss the founding of the International Presentation of Performers Convention and the reasoning behind its founding.

In addition, Mr. Patterson also gave insight into his early life and the struggles he endured to succeed in the industry without having the connections that a convention such as iPOP! provides. Likewise, it is because of Mr. Patterson’s determination that he would go on to launch the careers of countless Hollywood stars, which he also elaborates further on in the podcast.
