Is Middle East the New Streaming “Eldorado”?

04 Jun 2019, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Main Room
Language:
English

Digital music streaming in the region is in its infancy and has experienced almost none of the problems US and Europe have faced. However the MENA region is still plagued with problems such as poor internet connection and introducing consumers to paid subscription models for music. Recently, international platforms like Spotify and Deezer entered the MENA streaming market. History has taught us that competition is always good. This discussion will focus on if it is good for both consumers and artists since it helps create more opportunities and cultivate a culture for local talent to flourish.
