The manager and entrepreneur will receive the honour during the Midem Music Awards on June 7 in Cannes.
Braun will also join the Midem conference programme and participate in a keynote conversation. He will discuss how he has built SB Projects with ventures at the intersection of music, film, television, technology, brands, culture and social good.
“Scooter Braun is a leading figure in today’s music community, inspiring people to build a truly modern and innovative music business and never failing to push the boundaries of our industry to better serve talent and creativity on a global scale,” said Alexandre Deniot, director of Midem. “In terms of knowledge-sharing, Midem is a three-year Business School course condensed into four days, which is why we are so proud to provide Midem participants with the opportunity to listen to and interact with Scooter Braun.”
Braun added: “I’m honoured to be the first recipient of Midem’s Hall Of Fame Award and look forward to joining my colleagues at Midem this summer to discuss how the music industry can continue to not only grow but also give back.”
Midem 2018 takes place from June 5-8 in Cannes.
