MEX is proud to announce a fundamental partnership with one of the continent’s richest entertainment economy focused platforms, ayoba.
Music Exchange 2021 (#MEX21) has announced that current Music Australia chairperson Michael Smellie will be one of the keynote speakers at the upcoming 11th edition of the entertainment economy-focused conference.
As part of this year’s conference, audience members are invited to participate and ask this global music thought leader questions regarding the industry.
As heard on CapeTalk on 24 March 2021
“IFPI continues to campaign for a better legal environment for our member record companies to conduct business in around the world. Our work often involves fighting for and defending the rights of those that make music possible. A long-term campaign in China bore fruit last year when the Government established full performance rights. For the first time, revenue for right holders will be generated for the use of recordings in public performances and broadcasts, enabling further re-investment into the music community in the country. I believe it will serve as a key example of how putting the right laws in place can shape a bright future for music.”
Great op ed Piece by my friend Tim Hill. He allowed me to share: “It is generally accepted that on top of having great music, success in the music business is largely down to being in the right place at the right time as well as having a little black book of superb connections. The reality is that on top of these given elements, those who cut through the clutter are those who put in the hard work and go the extra mile. “
