The MMF will also be using the summit to launch an all-new AI Guide for music managers.
The Summit will be followed by the MMF’s AGM, also at 21Soho, which is free for all members to attend.
Annabella Coldrick, chief executive, MMF, said: “The ramifications of existing AI technologies are enormous, and especially so for music managers, who, on behalf of their clients, need to be across all commercial, legal and practical implications of machine-based innovation. It’s a hugely exciting space, and we’re delighted to have attracted such a stellar list of speakers and experts who can cover these bases in a single day - and at an affordable price.
“We will also use the event to launch the MMF’s all-new Guide To AI, which will provide a comprehensive breakdown of the key understandings and talking points that every manager should know when negotiating with their clients and business partners.”
