some great people from around the globe to this burgeoning music landscape."

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."

"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

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."
(Chairman/CEO, Atlantic Records)
