British music-industry bodies the BPI, AIM and MPA – along with the UK’s Department for International Trade (DTI) – are launching their latest trade mission to India. It’ll take place from 26-30 August, coinciding with the All About Music event in Mumbai. It’s the fifth year for the mission, which is open to artists, managers, promoters, record labels, music publishers, digital distribution companies, festival bookers/directors/organisers and promoters from the UK, who are keen to explore doing more business in India.
“The Indian music industry is already enjoying significant levels of growth, which are only set to increase in the coming years – making it the perfect time to establish a foothold in the territory,” said AIM’s membership manager Jude McArdle. “The combination of highly digitally-engaged consumers, the global appeal of British artists, and our two countries’ shared cultural heritage marks the Subcontinent out as a major commercial opportunity,” added BPI director of independent membership Chris Tams.
