Ashley Howard, PRS for Music’s Dance Relationship Manager said: “It’s great to be involved once again with Brighton Music Conference, which will provide the electronic music industry a much-needed opportunity to reconnect in person. Now more than ever, it’s vital that music creators are aware of the support available to them. We’ll be on hand at our panels at i360 and our networking event at Tempest Inn on Thursday 23 September, to offer advice and help creators on the way to carving out a successful career.”
Greg Marshall, General Manager, Association For Electronic Music (AFEM) said: “BMC is a key date for the electronic music industry to network, share knowledge and inspire the next generation. The educational content is always fresh and the setting on Brighton beach front makes for a unique conference experience. I am particularly looking forward to getting involved in this year’s event.”
Michael Kill, Night Time Industries Association (NTIA) CEO said: “It’s a privilege to be invited to Brighton Music Conference to host the final panel of the conference, it seems surreal that so much time has past since we were last together. It’s vitally important that conferences like BMC are here to bring together such an amazing community of creatives and entrepreneurs to share, communicate and learn in such an amazing setting. Looking forward to getting back to meeting people face to face.”
