Nick Gatfield and BPI Chief Geoff Taylor join MBW at November’s Music Futures

Geoff Taylor, Chief Executive Officer at the BPI, will deliver the keynote address at Music Futures Conference on Thursday 12th November at Sage Gateshead.

The exec will discuss how tech will continue to affect the changing patterns of consumption and distribution from the future of the high street right through to streaming and playlist curation.

In addition, former Sony Music CEO and founder of Twin Music, Nick Gatfield, will join the conference to give a Fireside Chat.

As discussed on an MBW Podcast earlier this year, Twin Music is centred around developing, managing and funding a delivery strategy and business platform with the aim of creating sustainable business models for both artists and entrepreneurs.

Gatfield will also take part in a Music Futures panel hosted by MBW alongside Columbia’s Alison Donald, UMPG’s Caroline Elleray and Fiction Records’ Jim Chancellor discussing whether A&R now relies on data too heavily.

Geoff Taylor said: ‘“The music industry is constantly adapting its business models to take advantage of new technology and to offer consumers new ways to engage with music.

“This makes forward-looking conferences such as Music Futures vital to help us anticipate future trends and understand their implications for the whole music ecosystem.

“Music Futures is now a major event in our music industry calendar and I am very much looking forward to delivering its keynote address this year.”Music Business Worldwide
