Key topics

As a result of analysing the evolution of the global music business in recent times and keeping an eye on what the main drivers of innovation have been, the following 3 key topics have been identified with the belief that they will need to be addressed by all major players in the music sector in order to the make the most of the opportunities ahead:

1. How to adapt to the new trends of content consumption and creation, from the attention economy to the interest economy, through the creator’s economy.
Dive into the dynamics of this new paradigm where Gen Z & Gen Alpha are building their identities, and understand how this is transforming the whole music value chain, from creation to licensing, distribution, discovery and monetization on all sorts of platforms.

2. How to make the most of the metaverse by fully capitalising the opportunities that this new environment brings.
Get immersed in this new layer of reality, identify the possibilities that open up and gain insight into the new technologies that power it such as AR, VR or AI, until it becomes second nature.

3. How to build alternative systems for the monetization of rights with the aim to achieve a greater profit margin and maximise the long term benefits.
Understand the complex ecosystem of music rights exploitation and get in touch with the alternatives that are being built in present times like NFT fragmentation ownership solutions.

Networking

This programme will give you access to the IMB Network, an exclusive network used to connect with professionals in the music business, where you can discuss current topics, find job offers and much more.
