ARTIST DEVELOPMENT 3.0 “The Future of A&R”
MUSEXPO 2017's panel programming kicks off with a focus on the nucleus of our business - the music! As our ecosystem continues to evolve amidst changing consumption platforms, data/metrics, revenue streams and more, the art form that is A&R only continues to grow in importance, especially as social, digital and mobile arenas fuel the increasingly over stimulated music fan and consumer. How do we grab and maintain the attention of the millennial generation, as well as others, and how do we monetize it in new ways and market places? What does it take to create and develop a hit song and the artist behind it? Bringing together some of the most inspiring songwriters, creative entrepreneurs and A&R minds, this forum will discuss the art, gut and science behind the next wave of global hits and artist development.

MUSIC SUPERVISION 4.0: “THE FUTURE OF SYNCHRONIZATION”
The global music catalog becomes more accessible every day and the music supervision community has the daunting task of sourcing the material that not only satisfies their brief, but also meets lowered production budgets. At the same time, the art, science and commercial realities of music supervision across all spectrums is rapidly changing and expanding across all realms. The evolution of on-demand and digital media (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, online, mobile etc.) and new synch markets such as India, China and others have brought with them more opportunities! Bringing together supervisors from a variety of different mediums, MUSEXPO 2017's kick-off synch forum will explore the music discovery process, how to balance the relationship with artists, content owners/creators and studios, networks, brands and get the right music for the right brief as well as the various other aspects that come into the mix when securing a synch license including the commercial realities, marketing and new and enhanced ways of monetization.

GLOBAL KEYNOTE: THE STATE OF THE SONIC UNION
The U.S. and international music industry maintains its constant evolution with a continuous stream of new platforms for music creation (A&R, publishing, artist development), promotion/marketing, brand partnerships, the live experience (clubs, arenas, stadiums), VR/on-demand, streaming/digital and more in a rapidly evolving global music business. However, it's not business as we once knew it. Many companies are creating a kaleidoscope of new art and commerce opportunities. As music companies and other platforms with a vested interest in sound continue to find ways to effectively create, distribute and monetize music - audibly, visually and experientially, the Global Keynote brings together highly-respected top-level executives from a broad sampling of the music and media industries to give their insight on the future of the world's music eco-system. It all begins with art, then relationships to creative and commercial touch-points and then ultimately revenue to help fuel the engines that drive the music business worldwide.

MUSIC COMMUNICATION: MARKETING EMOTION WITHIN THE RETAIL & CONSUMER BRAND PLATFORMS

Brand experiences can provide an amazing marketing vehicle to captivate and inspire mass audiences around the world. Brands continue to align themselves with both emerging and established artists alike, as well as directly with record labels, music publishers, producers, DJs and talent management firms as they seek to further connect with their existing consumers as well as attract new fans to their product. Additionally, brands can play a significant role in a consumer's discovery of emerging talent with entire marketing roll-outs being put into motion around a brand campaign that brings a new artist's music to a global audience. Featuring a broad spectrum of ad agencies, TV networks, consumer brands and product brands, the Music Communication discussion will address case studies from the artist/brand relationship with some of the world's leading brand's as well as look into the future of how music and its relationship with music and consumer marketing will change as the core traditional fundamentals of their relationship with music also connect with new social media platforms, automotive, on-demand, digital/streaming, VR and more.

GLOBAL MANAGERS FUTURECAST: IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT

Often working quietly behind the scenes, the talent manager (artist, producer, writer, DJ, media personality, etc.) can be an unsung hero behind the career of a successful global superstar. It takes an undeniable amount of patience, persistence and perseverance as well as a deep understanding and connection to the global music industry in order to drive a talent to worldwide success. The Global Managers Futurecast will bring together the minds behind some of the most internationally-recognized talents, as well as yet-to-be discovered talent/s to discuss what it takes to deliver their client/s to the masses and how they continue to evolve their model to capitalize on the value they create in a constantly evolving world of music, brands, media and technology. In addition, the session will look at new ways managers are leveraging their clients 'value' with consumer brands, tech/digital/mobile companies, as well as with agencies and promoters in unique ways as talent management spirals into new realms of opportunities and creative and commercial unknowns in the U.S. and globally.

Spotlight On India
The Indian music market has been understood, but also misunderstood and has presented a challenge to the global music community to understand this very important market and its creative and commercial realities.

Our esteemed panel of experts from all sides of the Indian music business will share the truths and realities of the current and future state of India's music business. As this part of the world (India/SE Asia) 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 and the regions 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!

THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION: STREAMING, MOBILE, EXPERIENTIAL & NEW CONVERSION PLATFORMS

Music is now consumed more conveniently and immediately than ever before via a plethora of streaming and digital platforms, a list which seems to continue to grow exponentially as more and more services are added with a goal of providing a more user friendly and effective vehicle for music discovery and consumption. Multi-media companies (radio, TV, streaming, on-demand), legal firms, streaming/audio companies, rights organizations, content owners/creators and others are navigating the opportunities, challenges and legalities of a burgeoning global music eco-system. Additionally, the live arena has seen significant digital evolution for both existing platforms and new ones as consumers search for more efficient ticketing/merchandise purchase solutions and wish to connect with their peers to share their experiences immediately - driven by photo and video moments via established and emerging social platforms. The Digital forum will bring together a panel of innovators with a vested interest in the digital/mobile and tech space to discuss how they are competing for consumer attention as well as monetizing the experience for creators, content owners and the digital and mobile landlords of the virtual world.

THE LIVE FORUM: FANS, MUSIC & THE FUTURE LIVE EXPERIENCE
Despite the multitude of new platforms for discovering and consuming content, the live experience remains as the most powerful form of artist to fan interaction. There continues to be an ever increasing offering of new festivals and live event experiences that seek to create a unique and one-of-a-kind environment for attendees as well as new social platforms that help attendees immediately share their experience with a global audience - creating the potential for festivals and artists to travel even further outside of the moment. The Live Entertainment forum will bring together a number of promoters and agents behind some of the world's most innovative and successful events and artists to discuss how they provide experiences that transcend the typical arena/club show and how promoting and marketing an artist and a show or festival continues to evolve from the music to the ticketing to the overall live experience and beyond, as well as what the future holds (VR, mobile, interactive, streaming, experiential and more).
