A2IM Virtual Indie Week 2020: Start Watching (or Re-Watching) The Panels Now!
If you were unable to join us this year or if you were able to join us but wanted to re-watch any of the panels, now is your chance. Between now and the end of the year, we will be releasing two new videos per week on our official A2IM YouTube channel, A2IM Indie Week 2020 Playlist.
- This week’s videos include:
- A2IM Annual General Meeting
Join Dr. Richard James Burgess, President, and CEO of A2IM, Team A2IM, and Special Guests for Indie Week 2020’s Annual General Meeting. Meet the newly elected A2IM Board of Directors, learn about A2IM’s current and future initiatives, and hear from featured speakers Helen Smith (IMPALA), Jeremy Sirota (Merlin), Charlie Phillips (WIN), and Rosie Lopez (Tommy Boy Entertainment and A2IM’s Executive Committee President).
- Why Is “How Do I Get On A Playlist?” The Wrong Question?
Playlisting is the end result of a successful marketing campaign, not step one. Hear from experts who have found success on streaming platforms, grown their fanbase organically, and captured the imagination of their fans to create hits.
Check back here each week, or go directly to our Official A2IM YouTube Channel; Indie Week 2020 Playlist to see what’s new!
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.
