The Future of Music: The Challenges of the Next 5 Years

9:45 AM - 10:00 AM, Ballroom A
The next five years will be a pivotal time for the future of music. As the barriers of entry for music creation continue to decline and the independent music sector continues to fuel growth, the industry will complete its digital transformation and revenues will exceed previous historical records. We need to continue to confront how the economics of listening have upended the business models for how creators are compensated. We need to rethink music fairness for artists, songwriters, terrestrial radio, national treatment and more.
In this keynote presentation, SoundExchange CEO Michael Huppe will share his vision on what we need to be building today to ensure the health of our global industry well into the next decade.
