Indie Week 2017 Wrap Up

A2IM Indie Week presented by SoundExchange 2017 was an exciting time for #TeamA2IM! We had the independent music community come together in what was our best year for panels to date. We touched on a wide variety of topics that affect independents, from the anatomy of a #1, to connected devices and virtual reality. We also implemented a new system to make scheduling meetings for our members easier and the results were positive… We totaled in at over 1,200 meetings! A2IM Indie Week had over 880 registrants from 14 countries, including 90 foreign delegates. Our nightly programming on the Lower East Side was a huge success, with showcases with Reeperbahn Festival and  M for Montreal, Dutch Music Export, Dutch Culture USA, Lorimer Beacon, Sneak Attack Media and Bandsintown!
