Vienna Music Business Research Days (conference review)

One of the events listed on the 'Events' page, the annual Vienna Music Business Research Days celebrated its fourth year last week, focusing on 'the future of music licensing'.

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the event and was impressed by the enthusiasm from the speakers, which included individuals from all over the world and from a variety of backgrounds (including academia, politics and industry).

Young scholars also presented challenging research papers on a variety of topics.

An informal and welcoming event, it comes recommended for anyone in mainland Europe who would like to get up close and personal on informed debate over changes in the music industry. They do a live stream, which is rare. So if you CAN'T make it next time around, there's no stopping you getting involved all the same.

A beautiful city, Vienna is easy to get to and even easier to get around once you're there.

I will certainly be back next year (when I will be better prepared for the weather...)

Check out the PDF of this years programme to get more information on individual speakers and their work.
