After a successful debut in 2019, Futures Forum returns – welcoming live music’s brightest young stars to share their 2020 vision for the future of the industry.
Created and shaped by young professionals, Futures Forum is a one-day discussion and networking event for the next generation of live music industry leaders. It takes place as part of the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) in London, bringing together the people that currently define the business with the emerging execs who are driving its evolution.
Futures Forum experiments with non-traditional conference formats, mixing connected discussions with immersive workshops, TED-style ‘Soapbox’ presentations by thought leaders, peer-to-peer networking and career-boosting mentoring – providing a rare opportunity for delegates to meet face to face with some of the most successful figures in live music.
If you’re a working professional looking to build connections, expand your knowledge or contribute to the future of the business, Futures Forum is the most important event on your calendar.
