Musikmesse will be the headline sponsor for the MI Retail Conference & Expo in 2011 and 2012.
This year’s event takes place on Wednesday, June 29th at The Brewery in Central London. The endorsement of Musikmesse, which organises events in Frankfurt (April 6th to 9th) and China (October 11th to 14th), is a huge boost for the Conference & Expo which made its debut last year and will be expanding in 2011
"Musikmesse is a global enabler of B2B contacts in the MI industry," said Cordelia von Gymnich, director of Musikmesse. "The British market is of major interest for our shows in Frankfurt and Shanghai. We would like to use the MI Retail Conference to stay in close contact with the industry in the UK, in order to exchange ideas and to support the export businesses for national maufacturers."
MI Pro editor Andy Barrett added: “Musikmesse backed the first MI Retail Conference & Expo, and we’re delighted that they were impressed enough to sign on for two more years. Their support confirms our belief that the event represents an ideal opportunity to talk directly to the most pro-active and forward thinking dealers in MI – and we look forward to working with them as we improve and expand the offering in 2011.”
As well as Musikmesse’s headline sponsorship, the MI Retail Conference & Expo has also attracted support from some of the industry’s leading suppliers and manufacturers, including Yamaha, Audio Technica, Barnes & Mullins, Music Sales, Allianz Music Insurance, FCN Music, Intermusic, Mel Bay, Monacor, Sound King, Tanglewood and Tascam, with Roland UK being the exclusive sponsor of the after show party.
