Spotlight On India
The Indian market has long presented a challenge to the global music community as a territory that lacked infrastructure for touring, regulating master/publishing licenses and bringing music to the masses efficiently with effective monetization. In recent years, as the market has evolved, India has been revealing itself as full of potential and passionate music fans seeking to connect with Western music and culture! As the largest English language speaking country in the world, India stands as a lucrative market if navigated and engaged with appropriately via live events, streaming and mobile platforms, licensing, sponsorship, brand experiences and more. As this part of the world continues to evolve, and as it recently has begun to more effectively monetize music, the international music industry has started to take serious notice of India’s vast potential. Bringing together industry leaders from across the Indian music community, MUSEXPO’s India Spotlight will bring the audience an insightful discussion on effectively tapping into creative and commercial potential across India, as well as offering the Indian market a bridge to the rest of the world!
