This year’s CMU+TGE Conference is now just one week away, with the Music Education Conference kicking off all of the Great Escape proceedings next Wednesday, 8 May, at 10am.

CMU is presenting three full-day conferences for TGE delegates this year, putting the spotlight respectively on music education, the streaming market and music marketing. CMU’s Chris Cooke has provided some context behind each of these conferences, explaining why we decided to focus on these themes in 2019, and revealing the key debates that are set to take place.

CMU Insights will also unveil a number of pieces of new research during The Great Escape this year. Among other things we’ll report back on the music education mapping that we have been doing as part of our Pathways Into Music project, plus the Music Managers Forum will launch the latest of its ‘Digital Dollar’ guides, this one focused on song royalties.

CMU has also been investigating trends in music marketing in recent months and will report back on that work at the Music Marketing Conference. As part of that project, we’re interested in getting some final very timely input from people working on album campaigns right now, to get some added context from the frontline.

We have set up a speedy survey to do just that and would love to have the input from anyone working on current album campaigns at labels, distributors or management companies. If you work in music marketing and would be willing to fill out that survey in the next couple of days, email and he’ll send you the link.

Meanwhile, we are looking forward to welcoming you all to Brighton from next Wednesday. Access to all the CMU+TGE conferences is open to anyone with a TGE delegate or conference pass, plus standalone tickets are also available for the Music Education Conference.
