Renowned music biz conference MUSEXPO is rebooting itself for 2019, with a new name, new venue and a move to March from its traditional April/May slot.
The MUSEXPO Creative Summit will now form part of California Entertainment Week and be held March 24-27, 2019, at the Castaway venue in Burbank, Los Angeles, a short hop from its usual Hollywood home. The area is home to a host of music and media companies.
Organisers say MUSEXPO – which celebrated its 20th edition in 2018 – will continue to showcase new artists and delve deep into every area of the music business. It will also continue to honour an International Music Person Of The Year – an award won in 2018 by BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2.
“Every year, our entire team sets a new industry standard to ensure we continue to make each MUSEXPO better than the last," said Sat Bisla, president and founder of A&R Worldwide/MUSEXPO. “As we unveil our newly-inspired Creative Summit as part of California Entertainment Week, we are determined to bring a fresh energy and exciting new opportunities to our 2019 attendees and help unite artists, executives and fans alike.”
Details of speakers will follow, with the event traditionally attracting a heavyweight cast of execs from across the international business.
