ARTIST DEVELOPMENT 4.0: THE FUTURE OF A&R
MUSEXPO’s Creative Summit welcomes a panel of the world’s most innovative A&R minds for a focus on the nucleus of our business–the music! As our ecosystem continues to evolve amidst changing consumption platforms, data/metrics, streaming, revenue platforms 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? This forum will highlight the first point of creativity in the music business with a discussion on the art, gut and science behind the next wave of global hits and artist development.

11:50AM - 12:40PM
BEHIND THE A&R GLASS: CREATING HITS FOR GLOBAL ARTISTS
Without great songs, there are no great artists. An artist can have the best image, social stats and a larger-than-life persona, but without consistent and undeniable hits, their success will remain limited. This session will bring together some of the leading creative minds behind the scenes of crafting incredible global hits. Writing and producing great songs is an art form unto itself and this panel has mastered the craft to create music that has changed the career trajectory of some of the world’s most recognized acts!

GLOBAL ENTERTAINMENT MARKETING FORUM: CONNECTING WITH A NEW GENERATION OF MILLENNIAL CONSUMERS
The creative process doesn't stop once the song is created. As the global consumer landscape has continued to evolve, it has forced the industry to find new and effective ways to market to fans with increasingly short attention spans. This has spawned an entirely new breed of marketeers and tech innovators who now seek the path of least resistance to reach consumers via traditional platforms such as radio, synch and live, as well as a new generation of media, including streaming platforms, social media, apps and other digital/tech innovations. This panel welcomes some of the leading music marketing minds and tech disrupters from around the world who have successfully navigated the plethora of avenues to bring artists to the global marketplace in an authentic, palatable and compelling manner.

Music and songs have become 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 meet the changing creative and production needs and licensing budgets. At the same time, the art, science and commercial realities of music supervision across all spectrums is rapidly evolving across multiple arenas including: trailers, TV shows, video games, film and on-demand. This session will explore the music discovery process, how to balance the relationship with artists, content owners/creators and studios and networks 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 creative and commercial realities, marketing and new and enhanced ways of monetization.
