25th Anniversary of the Music Managers Forum

PPL will be joining the Music Managers Forum (MMF) in Manchester on 27 September to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

The MMF are holding their 25th anniversary celebrations at Old Granada Studios on 27 September by inviting emerging managers and artists to attend a day of workshops, speed meetings and general networking with both Manchester and London-based music companies.

PPL will join a number of businesses and organisations confirmed to present at the event, titled You Are The Future Of Music, including Spotify, YouTube, AWAL, Shoosmiths, PledgeMusic, Sentric Music, Harbottles, Music Support, Funnel Music, Arts Council, OJK, PRS Foundation, and PRS for Music.

Alongside masterclasses and surgeries focussed on the latest music business innovations, the day will pack in practical information on a range of music-related issues including distribution, management contracts, label and publishing deals, funding and finance and mental health.

There will also be one-to-one speed meetings, and an opportunity for aspiring music managers and artists to meet and network with top industry experts.

The evening will see founders of the MMF alongside current board members, local managers, artists and industry brought together for a drinks reception sponsored by YouTube, BMI and Jack Daniels.
