Top Music Industry Conference Presents the Beginning of a New Music Business

NEW YORK, May 7, 2014New Music Seminar (NMS), dedicated to exploring ideas that will lead to a better music business through networking, engagement, and discussion about the future of music and business, returns to New York for its annual conference, June 8-10, 2014, at The New Yorker Hotel.

 

From breakout indie artists to visionary CEOs and executives, NMS is where high-level discussions and interaction will help shape the new business solutions for this new era of music business.

 

“The music industry has reached a flexion point – after eight years of growth, digital music sales have peaked and joined CD sales in double digit declines, and the future of the music business is clearly ensconced in streaming,” said Tom Silverman, founder and executive director, New Music Seminar. “Music’s monetization, measurement and even the language must change from units to users, average revenue per user (ARPU) and customer lifetime value (CLV). This is a paradigm shift of unprecedented proportion and the New Music Seminar will probe the opportunities and dangers as we enter this new era.”
