A2IM SXSW Breakfast Recap

A2IM once again had a hugely successful SXSW Breakfast and Executive One-on-One Sessions presented by Royalty Exchange, Songtrust, and DISCO! The bigger venue was worth it this year, we had over 250 members come out. Thanks to all that came for the tacos and networking (but mostly tacos, right?). In under three hours, we facilitated about 150 Executive One-on-One sessions during our Breakfast.

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.
