Panel Discussion

State of the Global Music Industry

Is it possible that 2019 is the year our sometime enemy, technology, is recognized as our best friend? The business is no longer about what’s going on in our own backyard, and this State of the Industry panel has the globalized data to prove it. We’ll show you streaming figures of songs that break worldwide, as opposed to just Canada or North America. And we’ll show you consumption trends that suggest, when it comes to favourite tunes, a border is just a line on a map. It’s a new world, where data globalizes everything, where streaming services sign artists outside the record label paradigm and deliver their music to hundreds of millions worldwide. It’s a wide-open field for creative and commercial exchange.
