WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 7TH
To celebrate our 30th anniversary, the Music Managers Forum (MMF) has today announced details of a unique Managers Summit to take place at London’s KOKO on Tuesday September 27th (12pm-5pm).
Tickets are available here, with a reduced rate for MMF members.
As the world’s only unique networking event for music managers, the Summit aims to place a focus on the past, present and future of music management with the following strands:
PAST: drawn from the archives of Music Week and other publications, a specially-created exhibition of the MMF from 1992 to 2022 – highlighting the organisation’s work and successes over 30 years.
PRESENT: the launch of our new book, ‘The Essentials of Music Management’, alongside discussions with some of the UK’s most entrepreneurial managers about navigating the music industry. Attendees can also schedule clinics with MMF Associate lawyers and accountants.
FUTURE: presentations on the latest tech innovations, including hologram touring, new audio formats, NFTs, digital pressings, navigating Web3, and building digital communities.
The event will conclude with a keynote interview featuring Iain Watt, formerly of Machine Music and YMU, and now founder of the artist management and tech consultancy Attention Management.
Founded at Manchester’s In The City conference in September 1992, the MMF currently has more than 1,250 members – ranging from the representatives of global superstar artists and songwriters to those just starting out in the music business. The MMF works to educate, inform and represent this membership – providing professional development, commercial opportunities and campaigning for a fairer and more transparent music industry.
Some of our recent campaigns and initiatives include Dissecting The Digital Dollar, Let The Music Move, the Accelerator Programme for Music Managers, FanFair Alliance and MMF Unite.
Annabella Coldrick, Chief Executive, MMF:
“We’re really delighted to announce this very special Managers Summit. As well as a great excuse to celebrate 30 years of the MMF, it also gives us an opportunity to gather our membership, Associates and friends for an afternoon of stimulating talks, discussions and presentations, about the present and future of music management alongside a thought-provoking keynote interview with Iain Watt.”
“On top of that, it is a really fitting occasion to launch our new text book, The Essentials of Music Management, and to explore what is still, even three decades down the line, the most consistently dynamic, entrepreneurial and exciting sector in the music business.”
