AIM’s next event, taking place at City Hall in London on 30th November 2015, will celebrate the successes of women in the music industry. Supported by the Mayor of London, the eighth annual AIM Women in Music event is set to be a sell-out success, with a stellar line-up of speakers already confirmed. Tickets are now available fromhttp://www.musicindie.com/womeninmusic2015.
Women In Music 2015 will give women (and men!) the opportunity to hear from some of the music industry’s most successful and influential women, as well as the chance to meet, network and drink.
The event will begin with opening remarks from AIM Chairman and CEO Alison Wenham. Alison has been one of the most influential executives in changing the all-male domination at senior levels in the music industry, and her many years supporting the independent music industry earned her an OBE in 2010.
The evening will feature two interviews with notable female figures from the music industry, to be revealed in the coming weeks. Previous ‘In Conversation With…’ sessions at AIM’s Women in Music events have included Sophie Ellis Bextor, Jo Whiley, MOBOs founder Kanya King, Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorne and legendary broadcaster Annie Nightingale.
The evening’s talks will conclude with a panel discussion exploring the career paths of women from several different sectors of the music industry, including live, tech, radio and indie labels. The panel features women who are rising stars of 2015 as well as senior industry figures and asks “are we making progress?”

- Angie Jenkison, Music Relations Manager, Teenage Cancer Trust (Awarded Campaigner of the Year 2014)

The event will finish with networking drinks, giving attendees the chance to make new contacts over complimentary drinks.
The event will be held from 6-10pm on 30th November 2015 at London’s Living Room, City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London, SE1 2AA. This prestigious venue has spectacular views of the Thames and London Bridge, and is home to the Mayor of London.
