A2IM UPDATE: 2020 *Virtual* Indie Week Conference & Libera Awards Presentation

We at A2IM place your safety and that of our attendees and staff above all other considerations. As we cannot be certain that travel or large gatherings, especially in New York City, will be safe by this June, our A2IM Indie Week and the Libera Awards will be held on the same dates, June 15-18, 2020, but as a virtual event.

We are committed to presenting world-class events and providing education, community, and advocacy for our members. We are currently building out these opportunities and we will share additional details of both Indie Week and the Libera Awards as soon as possible. But for now, if you have any questions please contact your membership representative. Please note that A2IM will be in contact in the coming weeks with all ticket holders regarding next steps.

All of us at A2IM are grateful to you, our members, who show us time and again, the importance of community. Gathering every June to share our unique experiences, learn from leaders of our sector, and network with our peers has become an Independent rite of passage. We hear you and we thank you. This year will be no exception and we look forward to coming together again, this June, in a new and exciting way.

The independent community is stronger together, in person and online.

All the best,
Team A2IM

About A2IM:
A2IM is a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit trade organization headquartered in New York City that exists to support and strengthen the independent recorded music sector. Membership currently includes a broad coalition of more than 700 Independently-owned American music labels. A2IM represents these independently owned small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) interests in the marketplace, in the media, on Capitol Hill, and as part of the global music community. In doing so, it supports a key segment of America’s creative class that represents America’s diverse musical cultural heritage. Billboard Magazine identified the Independent music label sector as 37.32 percent of the music industry’s U.S. recorded music sales market in 2016 based on copyright ownership, making Independent labels collectively the largest music industry sector.
