Dave Holmes
(Founder, 3D Management) (Coldplay)

"I'm excited to be participating at MUSEXPO Asia Pacific & One Movement for Music. The Asia Pacific region is one of the most rapidly emerging music markets in the world and I'm looking forward to attending an event that will bring together some great people from around the globe to this burgeoning music landscape."

Seymour Stein
(Chairman, Sire Records Group)

"I thoroughly enjoyed MUSEXPO. There are so many of these conferences around the world, that I really didn't know what to expect. MUSEXPO, with the quality of its organization and participants, makes it a very valuable conference to attend. I look forward to participating again next year. The Focus on Asia was an outstanding panel. Emerging markets like India and China are the key to the music industry's survival over the next twenty years."

Steve Schnur
(Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing, and President for Artwerk Music Group)

"As tastemakers ourselves, our network includes A&R Worldwide as a critical resource. Their vast knowledge and connections add to their ability to musically future forecast with us. Wherever they are putting on this conference [MUSEXPO], we will be there for sure!"

Korda Marshall
(President, Infectious Records) (UK & Europe)

"It was pure serendipity that my teenage children dragged me along to The Borderline to see an unknown new Australian act called The Temper Trap playing their first UK gig. I was totally blown away by their songs and performance and would like to thank the A&R Worldwide organization for being brave enough to include them at MUSEXPO Europe 2008 in England to play what's now become a legendary debut London show. A&R Worldwide have always championed great new talent in a way that is sorely lacking these days; their enthusiasm, knowledge and networking is exactly what drives this great business. Their ability to link developing artists with music executives and radio producers and their unerring support to connect like-minded people on a worldwide basis is truly unique."

Craig Kallman
(Chairman/CEO, Atlantic Records)

"[A&R Worldwide/MUSEXPO Founder] Sat Bisla is brilliantly connected on a worldwide basis with such terrific relationships to unearth the next great talent. He also has excellent ears and can spot the hits. Anyone who has the pleasure of knowing him is blessed."

Nick Gatfield
(Chairman & CEO, Sony Music Entertainment, UK & Ireland)

"With their strong international network A&R Worldwide has the ability to bring together the world's top music talent finders and developers and their annual conference [MUSEXPO] provides a unique opportunity for global artist discovery and marketing opportunities."

David Massey
(President, Mercury Records, US)

"A&R Worldwide's MUSEXPO is a great forum to network with other like-minded executives from all areas of the international music and media business. In addition, it provides a great selection of evening showcases featuring new talent from around the world."

Daniel Glass
(Founder/CEO, Glassnote Entertainment)

"Thank you again for including me in this year's MUSEXPO. It was one of the most productive conferences I've attended in and advice, rather than negative nonsense and gossip. The speakers were candid and informative. I was proud to be on our panel. This was the first time I met Mike Walsh...what an impressive gentleman! And I loved sharing with Seymour, Peter and Steve. Congratulations to you and your team for a job well done!"

Bruce Flohr (Sr. VP A&R ATO/Red Light)

"I just want to thank you for putting on such a great event. It was relevant and fun. Many events manage the latter, but few combine both. I look forward to the next one."

Alex Patsavas

"A&R Worldwide's MUSEXPO is a great forum to network with other likeminded executives from all areas of the international music and media business. In addition, it provides a great selection of evening showcases featuring new talent from around the world."

"It was fantastic to see you and participate in your conference. Thanks for inviting me! I really enjoyed it."

Gary Chen
(CoChairman/CEO, Orca Digital Inc./Top 100, China)

MUSEXPO was very helpful to me since I was able to meet with so many key professionals in the music and media industries. MUSEXPO gave me a great opportunity to let potential partners in the US and outside of China know of our existence, as well as the potential opportunities for them in China. I appreciated the fact that so many top executives wanted to speak with me after my MUSEXPO panel to learn more about Top 100 and the Chinese market."

Especially for new starters in the business like myself, MUSEXPO is an ideal platform and a great opportunity to learn from the best, develop great contacts and understand that there are people in the same boat and we can learn to cooperate and solve things in a joint way. Everything was perfect, from the food, the location, the shuttles to the showcases to the agenda--only the snow was a bit over the top, as it normally does not snow in London."

Mark Wood

Neil Simpson

"The MUSEXPO conference has been, without question, the most productive and meaningful event of this type I have attended. I have met some wonderful people from all over the world and I've experienced a very fraternal environment where people are more than happy to engage with each other, exchanging ideas, contacts, advice, and opinions. The networking aspect of the conference was incredibly open and friendly, which has been of tremendous benefit to us all."
