The inaugural MUSEXPO Europe kicks off on Monday, October 27th at The Cumberland Hotel in London, England and concludes on Wednesday, October 29th with industry showcases in the heart of London. MUSEXPO Europe will showcase 18 artists from 10 countries and welcome delegates from two dozen countries on four continents.

MUSEXPO Europe and its conference team intend to keep the event intimate, inspiring and informative as always. The event will retain a similar ethos to the A&R Worldwide networking dinners started back in 2001, which are the foundation of MUSEXPO and the inspiration for what MUSEXPO’s ideology is all about. MUSEXPO brings together executives from the music, media and technology sectors from both within the UK and int’l community in a personal, interactive and forward-thinking manner. In addition, the conference has organized a stellar lineup of showcasing artists! With hundreds of A&R, publishing, booking, film/TV synch licensing executives, press/media and more from around the world attending this year’s inaugural MUSEXPO Europe, the expectations are high for many acts to walk away with tangible outcomes, as well as post-signing success, thanks to the development foundation already in place for many of the showcasing artists. In addition, executives attending the event are in for a treat as the diversity of global attendees and companies to network and do business with is some of the strongest any industry event in London has seen in many years.
