Trade Missions

Membership of the MPA ensures discounted entry to key music conferences and trade shows in the UK and around the world.

At Midem, for over a decade we have partnered with other UK music trade bodies on the British Music at Midem stand – offering members a significant saving on their delegate pass as well as numerous benefits, including meeting and storage facilities.

Other regular MPA partnerships have included The Great Escape, Norwich Sound & Vision, Reeperbahn Festival, Brighton Music Conference, Sync Summit as well as events by PRS for Music and other UK trade bodies such as AIM, BPI and the MU.

The continued success of British music overseas is a defining characteristic of our sector. The UK is one of only three net exporters of musical repertoire around the world, and music publishers generate over a quarter of our £2.2bn music exports.

The need for members to understand key overseas markets is a priority and in partnership with the BPI and UKTI, the MPA hosts two regular trade missions each year to Germany and the US.

Both offer a cost effective and highly focussed schedule, with the end goal of creating new commercial partnerships to grow your business.

Based around Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival (September), the former offers participants an unparalleled insight into the world’s fourth largest music market, and an opportunity to meet local music executives face to face.

Our LA mission, meanwhile, is focussed on the sync licensing market – enabling music publishers to network with some of the most important music supervisors and placement executives in the TV, film, advertising and computer games markets.
