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.

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. It is crucial to connect your digital world to the real world and take your business to the next level through real-life meetings with the decision-makers, influencers and organisations shaping the future of the international music industry.
