New European training programmes for International Music Publishing and Live Entertainment:
International Music Business Summer School offers qualification and networking opportunities for European music business professionals
The International Music Business Summer School is the continuation of the training programme for European music business professionals. Due to the ongoing pandemic and related travel restrictions, the programme will take place online in January and February 2022. The seminar has been designed to facilitate cross-border knowledge transfer and cooperation. It provides advanced training in two separate courses which applicants may choose to participate in: music publishing or live entertainment. The online seminars are accompanied by networking activities and followed by alumni meetings during Eurosonic Noorderslag 2022 and Reeperbahn Festival 2022. The reduced participation fee of 150€ will include a ticket to one of those festivals (to be chosen by the participants).
The International Music Business Summer School will consist of two parallel seminars - International Music Publishing and International Live Entertainment - which will be held online in January and February 2022. A digital kick-off meeting for all participants will take place on Jan 17, 2022. The training programme intends to provide people from all over Europe – either already active in the music business or experienced career starters – with a comprehensive qualification in the areas of international music publishing and live entertainment. The scheme is based on three essential pillars: knowledge, networking and the exchange of experience. The curricula combine fundamental information on an international level with specialist knowledge, covering a wide range of topics from creative publishing to EU copyright law in the field of international music publishing, and from the future of live streaming to new touring standards after Covid-19 in the live entertainment domain.
Mette Zähringer, Vice President, Iceberg Music Group: “As part of the board of trustees for the International Music Publishing Summer School, I am happy to announce that participants can expect a programme that adapts to the rapid developments in the music industry. Especially under pandemic circumstances, it is more important than ever to make the exchange of knowledge possible on an international level.”
