First Sessions Announced

The full Futures Forum 2020 agenda will be announced over the next few weeks, and we’re delighted to announce our first round of sessions.

OK, Boomer: Closing the generation gap

Building on Futures Forum’s mission ­– to bring together the people who define the business today with those driving its evolution – this new-for-2020 session, chaired by IQ Magazine’s Jon Chapple, pairs up senior execs from leading concert businesses with their more junior counterparts to compare experiences and ways of working.

With more young people than ever choosing to forge a career in live music, what can they learn from the industry’s leaders – and vice versa? Expect frank discussion and plenty of practical advice from either side of the generation gap with leading lights from the international touring and agency worlds.


Mental Health: Next steps for live

ATC Live’s Stacey Pragnell will chair Mental Health: Next steps for live at Futures Forum 2020. With mental wellness now a central topic of discussion within the business, and as both institutions and individuals begin to put their mental health first, how can the industry continue to build on this momentum?

From addressing the 24/7 working culture; to safety nets, services and spaces for those in need, the support network that’s needed is still in its infancy. An invited panel of guests consider the next best steps to safeguard our workforce.
