Diversity & Inclusion in the Global Touring Marketplace

06 Jun 2019, 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

Main Room
Language:
English

Build in association with Pollstar, the 2nd edition of the Live Summit will tackle the current challenges and rewards of today’s live industry, as part of the global music value chain.

The summit will feature leading live business legends, innovators and upstarts to speak on panels and present case studies, as well as provide delegates with extensive networking opportunities and inspiration.

The music ecosystem in general, and live music specifically, is more diverse than it was only a few years ago but, like most industry, has a long way to go before it can truly call itself a unique and inclusive environment for artists and pros in terms of opportunity, leadership and its overall makeup. As the entertainment & creative industry at large increasingly strives to become more inclusive as a whole, the live music sector is grappling with how to become more diverse across the board, from performers themselves to tour personnel to those who promote, market, produce and present live entertainment. Live Summit will host artists and music professionals for a discussion on the current progress, or lack thereof, toward making the global music ecosystem more diverse and inclusive, including best practices and the advent of inclusion riders.
