This year the conference will continue to offer mentorship programs for managers, breakout artists, emerging and established artists, as well as industry professionals. In addition to these programs, ECMA will be adding new peer-to-peer opportunities throughout the event.
Also returning this year will be the Connect with the Experts – Artist & Industry Mentorship Program. This is a choose-your-own-adventure style of mentorship that allows artists to select the area(s) of the business where they would like to receive support and mentorship and sign up for 30-minute sessions with a mentor in that field. Tracks will include: radio promotion, PR, music licensing, digital rights, funding, showcasing, touring, and others to be confirmed. These meetings allow for industry members to have meaningful and direct exchanges with attending delegates.
This year’s year’s ECMA Industry Conference will continue to offer opportunities for delegates to connect with key members of the music industry through unique mentorship programs, engaging conference sessions, and strategic networking opportunities. The full ECMA conference schedule will be available in the coming weeks along with announcements on the ECMA 2018 Export Buyers Program.
