Keynote Interview

New Rules - New Music Company

Imagine this. A multi-billion dollar, major global music company completely exits the music industry. For 24 hours. And then they start again from scratch. With just three people working out of one office, they launch what eight years later becomes the biggest player in the industry outside the three majors. Sound unthinkable? BMG did just that.

Launched the same week as Spotify, BMG now employs 800 people spread across 15 offices in 12 countries – covering 80% of the worldwide music market, including Canada via a partnership with Black Box Music.

As the only fully integrated music company, from recordings and publishing to books and documentaries, Zach Katz outlines BMG’s global mindset, artist-first approach, and what lies ahead for the future of the industry. He will be joined by Jason Murray of Black Box Music as they discuss the importance of BMG’s international interconnectivity and recent successes together in Canada.
