About this event

The British Music Partners are hosting a Music Meets Tech Networking Breakfast in Association with Digital Catapult and AIM (Association of Independent Music) at the British Music Embassy at SXSW 2019.

AIM (Association of Independent Music) and Digital Catapult represent two parallel communities in music and technology that share common traits. Both are rich with innovation, entrepreneurship and energy - a sense of the curious and a healthy disregard for the status quo. The power and value in our partnership that brings these two communities together has been clear from the outset. Now in its second year, this partnership has fostered real and direct collaboration and experimentation across a whole range of businesses and services at the cutting edge of culture, technology and business.

This event is for those working in tech, wanting to connect with those working in music and vice versa. Please note spaces are limited so get down early!

Rebecca Gregory-Clarke, Head of Technology, Immersive at Digital Catapult and Paul Pacifico, CEO at AIM will each spend a few minutes speaking about their work and the natural partnership between music and tech.

Free to attend but spaces are extremely limited and on a first come, first served basis so get down early. Bagels, fresh fruit, pastries, O.J. and hot drinks, plus a drink from the bar for everyone.
