Description

Music Publishers Association, Music Managers Forum & MMF Training are pleased to announce dates for their joint Music Publishing Professional Development Programme for 2017.

The content & structure of the 2017 Programme has been revised and updated to ensure that all attendees become better equipped to take advantage of the new business opportunities that are central to the development of our industry. Individuals from all sectors of the music industry who are involved or interested in any aspect of music publishing will benefit from the Programme’s varied and comprehensive content. The objective is straightforward: to provide practical information placed in the context of today’s music & media industries.

Delivery of the Programme is designed to suit the busy lifestyles of those taking part. The programme consists of five short, intensive, “stand alone” modules. Each module is of three hours duration, now commencing at the earlier time of 5.30pm and ending at 8.30pm. Detailed reference materials are supplied for every module to provide additional guided learning opportunities throughout the Programme.

All modules are “stand alone”, enabling delegates to select specific modules or attend all five as appropriate. Collectively the whole modular Programme provides a wide-ranging analysis of all the key issues, challenges and practical opportunities facing those involved or interested in today's music publishing industry. For further information about each module, see below.
