Need to get the music industry’s attention? Get to Midem

Midem is coming in January. It’s the music industry’s premier connected event and it takes place in Cannes, France, every year. If you’re working on something mobile-music related (or “connected” music), then I strongly, strongly recommend you consider attending the event. You’ll meet almost 7,000 other folk.

Don’t just buy a ticket though. Get in touch with the organisers and find out how you might be able to get involved, whether it’s participating in their hackathon or speaking on a panel. I know the team there so if you’d like an introduction, please let me know. Indeed, if you’d like to submit a paper, you can submit a paper for consideration — although I think it’s getting quite late now.

If you’re a startup, there’s a special €495 ticket price (or €295 for students and artists). Otherwise it’s €795 if you book in advance (or an extra €100 on the door).

Some key reasons for attending:

  • Source music content
  • Benchmark your technology and business model
  • Showcase and sell your latest products, services and solutions
  • Raise funds from an international community of investors
  • Be visible among the global music ecosystem
  • Develop deals & partnerships with artists & brands

Make the decision soon though as hotel rooms will get booked up.

I just looked the trip up on Expedia and I’m astonished to report that you can stay at the Intercontinental in Cannes (including return flights from London Luton on EasyJet) for just £635! Or consider the Mercure near the beach — that’s just £298 for the hotel and flights!

Charms & Pendants: charms,
Earrings: gold and silver earrings,
Rings: Diamond Rings,
Birthstones Jewelry: Birthstones by month.

If my schedule will allow it, I’ll definitely be popping along to see what’s moving from a mobile perspective — so I might see you there!
