Bruno Crolot, the architect for the past four years of Midem – the annual music industry expo in Cannes, France – is leaving parent group Reed Midem today.
Crolot, who had the official title of Director of Midem & Music Markets, joined Reed Midem in 2010.
Crolot recently announced the dates of next year’s Midem, which will celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary.
“Working at midem has been an incredible journey, a true adventure and very intense.”
It will take place from Tuesday June 28 – Friday July 1 2016.
The 2015 edition of Midem was moved to the summer, away from its traditional annual slot in January / February.
Crolot told MBW this afternoon that his time running Midem had been an “incredible journey, a true adventure and very intense”.
He called it a “great challenge” that introduced him to some “wonderful people”.
Jérôme Delhaye, Director of the Reed Midem Entertainment Division, will take the lead on Midem as Crolot’s interim replacement.Music Business Worldwide
