MUSEXPO’S A&R WORLDWIDE 20/20 FORUM TO DIVE INTO THE
ART & SCIENCE OF A&R AND EXCLUSIVE KEYNOTES WITH CISAC, IHEARTMEDIA & WORLDWIDE MANAGER OF TWENTY ONE PILOTS



With just over a month until it returns to Burbank, California for its 22nd global edition, MUSEXPO Creative Summit 2020 (March 22nd – 25th) continues to reveal key industry leaders and innovators to join a number of insightful forums around the music and media industry’s constantly evolving ecosystem.

It’s important to remember that despite all of the new tech and digital advances we’re experiencing, one thing will never change – great songs and the artists that perform them will always be the most important element of the music business DNA. What does it take to create and develop a hit song and the artist behind it? The A&R Worldwide In 20/20 forum will highlight the essentials of creativity in today’s music business with a discussion on the art, gut (traditional A&R), science/data (analytics and research driven A&R), connection touch–points of music (artist and relationships) and how to best monetize music in today’s kaleidoscope of opportunity (artists and revenue) behind the next wave of global hits and artist development.

"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 & Marketing, Electronic Arts)

"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
(EVP, Music, BMG) (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
(Founder, Twin Music Inc.)

"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 & CEO, Arista Records)

"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."

"Thanks again for your fantastic hospitality. I was impressed with both the organization and caliber of attendees."

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 years...solutions 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 (Chief Strategy Offices & EVP, Red Light Management)

"MUSEXPO has delivered on its promise of organizing an event that is educational as well as manageable. We left with many new insights and plenty of new relationships. I look forward to the next one, now that I know what to expect. "

Alan Galbraith
(Licensing, Spotify, Europe)

"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
(Founder, Chop Shop Music Supervision)

"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."

(Deputy Programme Director & Head Of Music, Radio X, UK)

"Congratulations to you both and your team for an excellent MUSEXPO. It really did surpass the previous year--and that is saying something!"

Chris Barton
(Co-Founder, Shazam)

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

Gary Chen
(Managing Director, Spotlite)

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."

Allan McGowan

The networking aspect of the conference was incredibly open and friendly, which has been of tremendous benefit to us all."
