Todd Interland, who handles Lily Allen and James Blunt via London-based Twenty-First Artists, and Chris Morrison, manager for Blur and Gorillaz, are among the confirmed participants in the international manager summit at next year's MIDEM conference.

Ian McAndrew, co-manager of Arctic Monkeys; Jean-Charles Carré, business manager to dance artist David Guetta; Jan Sikorski, COO of talent agency the Agency Group, and Jeffrey D. Vanderveen, managing director of Universal Music Classical Management & Productions, will sit alongside Interland and Morrison in the panel, which is dedicated to effective artist management.

The 44th edition of MIDEM will be held in Cannes, France from Jan. 24 to 27. This year's event will see the introduction of the MIDEM Manager's Village - a networking hub for artist handlers.

The International Music Manager's Forum (IMMF) and the International Artist Managers' Association (IAMA) are the official sponsors of both the international manager summit and the MIDEM Manager's Village.
