UPCOMING EVENT



Launch of MMF’s Fan Data Guide + New Year Members Social

DATE: 24th January
MMF Members are invited to a social to welcome in the New Year and to celebrate the launch of the MMF’s new guide, the Fan Data Guide.

Music fans form the basis of any artist’s business and it is vital for an artist to be able to grow and engage with that fanbase throughout their careers. Therefore, knowing who owns the fan data, and who has access to it is absolutely central to your artists’ businesses. Come to our event on the 24th January presented by CMU’s Chris Cooke to learn how you can ensure you have the information and the data you need to build your artists’ careers, not only so you can maximise engagement across your artists’ own business, but across their business partnerships too.
