Calling emerging In partnership with FastForward, the annual conference bringing together the next generation of music industry leaders each February in Amsterdam, AIM will offer 5 emerging labels the chance to win free tickets to the first London edition of the event. Taking place at the British Library on 15th September 2017, FastForward:London is a one-day event offering keynotes, panel discussions and intimate networking aimed at (but not exclusive to) under 35s building a sustainable career in the modern music industry.
AIM has been a proud supporter of FastForward since its inception, and will now offer 5 emerging member labels or self-releasing artists the chance to attend FastForward:London free of charge. Any member label which has been operating for less than 3 years and is headed by founders who are 35 years old or under is eligible to apply for one of the 5 free tickets. At least 3 of the tickets will be allocated to member labels based outside of London, for whom AIM will cover travel costs, as part of the organisation’s commitment to supporting labels right across the UK.
AIM CEO Paul Pacifico said: “FastForward is an excellent event focusing on the next generation of music industry leaders, and we are excited to give AIM members the opportunity to benefit from the invaluable learning and networking opportunities that the conference provides.”
FastForward founder Chris Carey said: “We are really pleased to continue partnership between FastForward and AIM and delighted that they have chosen to support our debut London event in this way. AIM’s decision to help members attend FastForward:London will see them learning from leading experts as well as making lasting relationships and friendships that will prove very beneficial as their careers develop.”
AIM member labels wishing to apply for one of the tickets should email Jude McArdle (Membership Coordinator) on firstname.lastname@example.org outlining why they think they would benefit from attending the event (in no more than 300 words).
The deadline is 12 midday on Thursday 24th August.
