MIDEM To Host Keynote By BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch
With BMG marking its 10th anniversary this year, CEO Hartwig Masuch will give a keynote address at the 2018 MIDEM music conference, which takes place in Cannes June 5-8.
Launched in 2008 as BMG Rights Management, the company in recent years has expanded its recorded-music business to match its status as the world’s fourth-largest publisher. Masuch is expected to speak about the challenges facing the music industry, the philosophy that guides BMG and what’s required to build a global music company in the streaming age.
MIDEM, in its 52nd year, is expected to draw over 4,000 participants from some 85 countries, based on its 2017 attendance.
