Who We Are

The Music Publishers Association (MPA) represents the full diversity of the UK’s music publishing sector.

We act on behalf of 260 music publishers that invest in, license works by and supports the livelihoods of songwriters, composers and lyricists. From Adele to Jimi Hendrix, Ludovico Einaudi to Elvis Presley, our members represent the rights of a variety of songwriters and composers, contributing to an industry that is worth in excess of £900 million.

From training courses, member socials and our legendary Christmas Lunch, the MPA hosts a varied range of events that offer you, as a sponsor, the opportunity to tap into this vast and growing network.


Who Attends Our Events

Our network reaches farther than its members. As well as MPA publishers, we extend our invitation to special guests from across the music industry. Also as a member of UK Music, an umbrella organisation which represents the collective interests of the UK’s commercial music industry, we work alongside AIM, BASCA, BPI, FAC, MMF, MPG, MU, PPL, PRS for Music and UK Live Music.

Discounts and invitations to UK Music sister companies events are often given.

In the past, we’ve had attendance from Universal Publishing, Sentric, BPI, PRS, Beggars Music, Kobalt, Beggars Group, Spotify, Warner Chappell, Music Gateway, BASCA, UK Music, Bucks Music etc.
