The importance of networking in the music industry

In today’s music industry, it’s all about who you know. If you are trying to build a career in music, it is crucial to create networking opportunities and mutually beneficial, long-term relationships with your partners. Success in the music business depends on the strength of your network with other specialized professionals and companies. Midem helps you to grow your business and reputation worldwide by designing targeted networking events to connect with local and international partners before, during and after the event.

Whether you are a student, artist, marketer, label executive, publisher, booking agent, or startup founder, one of the keys to long-term success is networking to build up a list of influential contacts. Attending Midem means being part of the global music ecosystem and creating your own personal music community.

Social media platforms are an extremely important tool for music professionals to develop their network of contacts across the world and interact with clients, other specialists, and music fans. You can build a working relationship over the internet, but meeting someone face to face speeds up the process and trumps all other connections.
