A UK music industry trade mission to India is set to take place from 1 – 7 February 2018, providing an open door for independent music businesses to explore business opportunities in the world’s seventh largest economy.
The Department for International Trade (DIT) , in partnership with AIM (The Association of Independent Music) and BPI (British Phonographic Industry), is organising this music mission to India, which will take place in Mumbai, for a fourth consecutive year.
The music industry is growing in India, a country that is increasingly consuming international music and developing its association with the international music business.
The week-long mission will act as a catalyst for collaboration, exploration and expansion of the British music industry in India. It will include a programme of education, networking, B2B meetings, conferences, showcases, music company site visits and other music related activities.
Artists, managers, promoters, record labels, digital distribution companies, festival bookers/directors/organisers and promoters, covering all genres of music are being invited to participate and the mission organisers will be tailoring certain aspects of the program to suit all delegates.
Some of the activities planned with The Deputy High Commission in Mumbai include site visits to Music Companies, Film Studios and Music retailers as well as a music showcase evening and several opportunities for B2B meetings and networking with opinion leaders and industry professionals. It will end with a Queens Birthday Reception.
Mission registration is just £120.00 per delegate and interested parties should note that funding may be available through DIT, details of which can be obtained through Phil.Patterson@trade.gsi.gov.uk
