LIVE UK Summit, a conference and networking event for the live music industry, is moving to a new venue and adding new panels and features.
Under the banner ‘New Venue, New Date, New Focus’, the event is set to take place on Wednesday 30 October at London’s new Hard Rock Hotel and its convention space Great Cumberland Place.
New conference sessions include Everyday People, covering diversity and gender balance issues, and Down To Earth, focussing on sustainability.
They join Guardians of the Galaxy (international booking agents), Taking Care of Business (concert promoting), The Social Network (digital interaction) and more.
The event will have a particular focus on the new generation of professionals driving the industry, and new technologies that can aid the development of the live music sector.
More than 300 delegates are expected to attend from across the industry – from grassroots to national event promoters, festival organisers, operators of venues, artist managers, booking agents, service providers, industry organisations and politicians.
