ABOUT THE EVENT...
This year the event returns to historic Glaziers Hall in London Bridge. The format will be based around three main spaces, one - the 'Digital Market Place' - with space for 16 stands to be hosted by digital companies. Go round the various stands and meet the industry's key digital music companies, find out more about their services, and maybe even do some deals...
The second space, the 'Conference Zone', will offer a programme of seminars, workshops and presentations on digital music issues, including market research presentations, case studies of digital marketing campaigns and lively panel discussions on current issues.
The final room offers space for informal meeting and chatting, as well as a bar and the day's networking lunch, which is included in the event's ticket price.

2012 is already well on track to being another big year for streaming music. But big questions remain over the economics of streaming, its impact on the wider music market and how well it serves artists. Spotify may be locked in ‘growth mode’ with profitability as a ‘longer term growth’ but the music industry needs to ensure that the model adds up now if streaming is to play a beneficial role in the long term. Digital music analyst Mark Mulligan presents.
