There are just eight weeks to go until MI's top dealers head to the MI Retail Conference & Expo. And if you haven't registered to take your free place amongst the industry's elite, you need to email us at email@example.com now.
After a successful debut last year, the MI Retail Conference & Expo, in association with Musikmesse, takes place on Wednesday June 29th at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London.
The programme for the day will see a conference session in the morning, which will include inspiring sessions from MI retail and High Street consultants on how to improve business practices, plus what promise to be lively panel debates on the topics facing dealers right now - including the thorny issues of pricing and online stores.
A talk from former musician and current CEO of UK Music Feargal Sharkey will round off the morning session.
And after a free lunch, the expo opens, with distributors and suppliers promising special show offers and new dealer promotions. A series of break-out sessions and workshops will also allow smaller groups of retailers to get hands-on with new products and receive valuable advice from their business partners.
An after-show party, sponsored by Roland, will allow the trade and suppliers to continue networking into the evening.
And if that wasn't enough, all dealers attending MIRC will go home with a VIP gift bag including a Sony PSP console and game.
