MUSIC EXCHANGE (#MEX20), South Africa’s preeminent entertainment-economy-invested conference returns this September for the 10th consecutive year.

 Lauded and awarded for its consistent commitment to the broader South African music industry, MEX’s incredibly productive and positive 10th anniversary year will run from 10 to 20 September 2020 with a wealth of quality international and local speakers.

 With the overall industry decimated in the face of the COVID-19 fallout, #MEX20’s annual conference is critical to surviving and succeeding in a world that remains in financial free fall.

 Despite 2020 being the most challenging in MEX’s decade of dedication, investment and global outreach, Music Exchange 2020 (#MEX20) is opening its annual industry-focused indaba to the world.

 Over the past 10 years MEX has actively informed, partnered and brokered with some of the biggest and most influential players and institutions, with the sole purpose of elevating, educating and sharing a wealth of learning from all four corners of the planet and 2020’s #MEX20 is no different.

 If anything, #MEX20 is offering everyone, directly or indirectly professionally affected by the pandemic, an opportunity to explore the possibility of change in recovering and rising above a year that’s riddled with uncertainty and confusion.

 MEX has become synonymous with offering a variety of specialist speakers across a plethora of disciplines, from publishing, live performance, production, PR and marketing, song-writing and all legal aspects associated with nurturing and growing the overall entertainment ecosystem.

 Over the past decade MEX has welcomed and hosted the likes of composer Dr Trevor Jones, musician and producer Bryan Michael Cox, Stuart Rubin, The Orchard’s Ben Oldfield, Mark Murdoch, Mos Def , Tim Renner , Sipho Mabuse, Tom Novy ,Karen Zoid , RJ Benjamin and AKA among many more, all in an impressive lead  up to this year’s impressive list of confirmed speakers.

 The #MEX20 speaker line-up includes:

  • Wiseman Ngubo (Capasso)
  • Neil Johnson (Radio consultant)

 With more names to follow in the lead up to #MEX20, this year’s 10th anniversary edition promises to deliver on what MEX is known and respected for in delivering quality conversations that lead to quantifiable outcomes.

In partnership with Ticketpro, V&AAcom Branding, Paul Bothner Music, Western Cape Government and Digicape
 #MEX20 will host no less than 10 global and local entertainment industry thought-leaders and game-changers in 30 to  60-minute presentations on the  streaming platform.
 For mere R100 investment, per ticket, #MEX20 delegates will enjoy an all-access-pass to the full 10-day conference, consisting of a series of unmissable keynote addresses and international thought leadership sessions from some of the most relevant and revolutionary minds in the business.

 Added to this year’s ticket offer is the opportunity for delegates to win spot prizes to the value of more than R60 000 from Paul Bothner Music, Acom Branding and the Victoria & Alfred Hotel.

 Martin Myers, founder and convener of the conference, remarked “Not only is 2020 a big year in Music Exchange’s history, it’s without question the most urgent in addressing and rising above the challenges thrust upon every single person in our massively compromised economy.”
