International Panel Of The Year!

This is an important meeting for anyone connected to music publishing since over half of our income comes from outside of our borders.  With the failure of the Global Rights Database (GRD) project, the France-based CEO of rights society service provider FastTrack will introduce us to a new worldwide copyright initiative in progress called CISNext.

Additionally, the Director General/CEO of the Europe-based International Confederation Of Music Publishers (ICMP) will update us on the status of music publishing concerns outside the U.S.  It is a rare treat to have both of these influential individuals with the AIMP and incredibly valuable information that will enhance your business and collection efforts globally will be presented and disseminated!
