MUSIC 4.5: Smart Radio

23 September 2014, 14.00-18.00

Lewis Silkin offices, 5 Chancery Lane, Clifford's Inn, London, EC4A 1BL

“…with a few exceptions, albums are edging closer to extinction. Playlists are the future.” George Ergatoudis, BBC

Traditional radio is finding itself in a consolidated landscape where, faced with the increasing expansion of streaming services, the main route to growth is to innovate, developing new business models and new technologies.

Streaming services are looking more and more like radio with a “richer suite of lean-back, programmed and semi-programmed experiences”(MusicIndustryBlog, Mark Mulligan).

While it is agreed that streaming drives music discovery and consumption, what does it do for music sales? Are we witnessing the death of the album, cannibalised by playlists and ‘free music’?

Whilst radio has long been the biggest promotional media for new music, in the streaming world, what works for the record companies and artists in “the age of the playlist” (MusicIndustryBlog, Mark Mulligan)?

TechPitch 4.5: pitch workshop

Available dates; 16 September 2014

Are you a tech startup? Do you need funds to grow and to develop your business and take your proposition to a wider audience? Are you considering approaching investors such as angels or VC's? If the answer is 'yes' to all these questions, then you might find the 2Pears pitch training workshops, run with the support of UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), useful.

The pitch-training workshops are available to attend for startups, small and early stage businesses in the UK, and to European tech companies looking to set up their business in the UK. 2Pears have to date trained over 600 tech startups to pitch for funding, so the workshops have a solid track record, and we get some great feedback.
