MPA Induction Course for Newcomers to Music Publishing

Event Overview

The MPA Induction Course, sponsored by Vistex, is one of the most renowned courses in the industry. Happening four times a year the course sees an expert group of panellists put the spotlight on all areas of music publishing; copyright royalties, sync, societies, legal issues and data.

Since it began, almost everyone in the music publishing industry has attended the induction course at some point and as such, this esteemed course is nearly always over-subscribed. The MPA Pub Social, which happens four times a year, normally lands on the second day of the course, where attendees are able to network and socialise in an informal environment.

Our panellists are the most senior executives in our industry and give an all-around introduction to music publishing.
