After a decade of upheaval and general craziness, the brand-new music business is starting to reassemble. But where are they reassembling, exactly?
One spot may be Canadian Music Week, a conference that’s becoming a growing nexus of music industry dealmaking and networking. And that’s not happening by accident: talk to conference CEO Neill Dixon, and doing meaningful business is now
a core selling point and strategic angle. Not just for execs, but also musicians, students, and tech companies.
The ambitious goal is to make this the hands-down, serious dealmaking spot for the music business. And a hardcore following is already developing. “LyricFind would not be the global company it is today without the opportunities for networking and exposure available at CMW,” LyricFind CEO Darryl Ballantyne testified.
