Music biz event recognised for “building a unique deal-making platform”
Midem has won an award from the music industry, when the publishing association ICMP nominated it for the Ralph Peer II Award for Outstanding Contribution to Global Music Publishing.
Midem was originally set up as a music publisher’s event, but quickly broadened its palette to include all sides of the business. For 50 years, it has remained the most important event of its kind and has seen countless deals lead to worldwide hits or careers.
ICMP is saluting Midem for “building a unique deal-making platform that has continually united and promoted all players – both big and small – from across the music ecosystem”. Industry veterans such as Seymour Stein (see video) and Doug Morris have also regularly praised Midem as the place where music meets business.
Midem: the first copyright summit
Midem continues to play central role in enabling music business and securing it. “As we begin the next 50 years of the Midem adventure we are proud to be launching the first Copyright Summit,” commented Jérôme Delhaye, Director of Reed MIDEM’s Entertainment Division. The summit will address upcoming reforms in the US and Europe, fair remuneration and new business models, “all of which are critical to the music publishing community,” concluded Delhaye.
Midem also recently introduced the Midem Artist Accelerator and the Midem Award.
Several thousand music makers, cutting-edge technology experts, brand specialists and talent from 75 countries are expected to attend this year’s event, which is taking place from 3 to 6 June.
