If you’re involved in music, chances are you probably already know Midem. The annual business fair is probably the word’s n° 1 meeting place for music professionals, held every January in Cannes. But if I have one word of advice for you it is…
Don’t miss Midem’s early bird deadline
November 30 2012 is the cut-off date for benefiting from the latest early bird deadline. This means you can get full access for €690. The walk-in rate in January 2013 is €895 (excluding VAT). That’s a difference of €200 which could cover your food in Cannes.
If you have never attended – or haven’t been for some time – you are probably wondering what you get for your money. Over the years, Midem has become the place where professionals from every sector related to music come to talk about business or trends. Increasingly, the conferences have become central to the event. The sidebars include midemlab, Midem Academy, classical music awards, events for managers and Visionary Monday. The video above gives an idea of what to expect.
Get insights on reaching and engaging music fans from people such as DJ/Producer Paul van Dyk, Patrick Walker, Senior Director EMEA of YouTube Music; Nick Bailey, Executive Creative Director of AKQA Amsterdam; Will Sansom, Writer/Consultant at Contagious Communications; and startup founders Alex White (Next Big Sound) and Rahul Powar (MPME by Appsmart) – who both won midemlab in previous years!
