David Takes a bite out of the Big Apple

Oct 14, 2018

Earlier this month, our CEO David Alexander attended the Mondo NYC Music Festival and Tech Summit.

Mondo NYC is a global business conference and festival that aims to unite music and technology. Emerging artists, innovators and industry insiders will connect and collaborate with fans in a mission to advance human creativity in an ever-changing world.

The 2018 summit focused on “blockchain, cryptocurrency and how these emerging technologies and economies will significantly impact the business of music;” a fascinating subject rarely explored within the industry. The first annual NYC Guild of Music Supervisors Education Event & Film Festival also took place at the same time. And there was an opportunity to engage with music supervisors from all over North America. As a bonus there was a joint presentation by the NMPA and the RIAA on the recently signed legislation – the Music Modernisation Act which has many parts that would work very well in South Africa and our local Department of Trade and Industry should be aware of.

An incredible experience all-round, the festival was not one to be missed and an opportunity to grow African Music within the music industry.
