Given the current extraordinary circumstances, the AIMP is rescheduling its Global Music Publishing Summit, which was originally scheduled for June 8-10, 2020, to June 7-9, 2021 however, for 2020 we are hosting the The AIMP Global Music Publishing Summit Webinar on June 9, 2020. 

The AIMP Global Music Publishing Summit Webinar will be held online on Tuesday, June 9 (12:30pm ET / 11:30am CT / 9:30am PT). It will begin with a keynote speech from Andrea C. Martin, Chief Executive of PRS for Music. Martin took up the position in June 2019 after previously serving as President and CEO of three international business units with Readers Digest Association, Managing Director of data services for the Royal Mail in the U.K., and President of ADT Canada. She will discuss her first year at PRS, the state of the collective management industry during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, and the impact on PRS member songwriters, composers and publishers.


Martin’s keynote will be followed by the panel “Mechanicals in the 21st Century: Overcoming Metadata and Distribution Challenges,” sponsored by The MLC. Moderator Robert Levine of Billboard will discuss the unique issues around international mechanical royalty payments with panelists from collecting societies around the world, including Kris Ahrend of The MLC (U.S.), Gaetano Blandini of SIAE (Italy), Paul Clements of MCPS (U.K.), Richard Mallet of AMCOS (Australasia), Caroline Champarnaud of SACEM (France), and Paul Shaver of CMRRA (Canada).
