Publishing has long been described as the real-estate of the music business; however, the matrix of copyrights continues to evolve in the age of technology, digitalization, streaming, the traditional platforms and more; affecting revenue streams and shifts in the traditional music publishing models.

In addition, publishers are taking a much more active role in A&R and enhancing their business into rights management/ownership, label services, writer/artist management and more. This forum will provide insight from some of Europe's and the world's leading publishing executives and the head of one of the leading PRO's on the planet (PRS For Music) as they discuss the paradigm shift from traditional music publishing into the future, as well as, diversification of revenue streams and the future engagement with songwriters who pen the hits that fuel the global appetite for sound.

SPOTLIGHT ON ASIA: “The Creative & Commercial Realities of the World’s Largest Consumer Market”
Once a mystery to the global music industry, over the past decade, Asia has been revealing itself as a market full of potential, as well as passionate music fans, seeking to connect with Western music and culture! In addition, key Asia-focused platforms in the UK, Europe and beyond have cultivated ways to tap into the heart, soul and musical spirit of first/second generation Asians and those born of Asian descent via various multi-media platforms. Asia is a lucrative market if navigated and engaged with appropriately via live events, streaming platforms, licensing, sponsorship, brand experiences and more. As this part of the world continues to evolve, it has begun to more effectively monetize music and the international music industry has started to take serious notice of its vast potential.
