My MU colleague Sam Jordan and I attended a planning meeting at the offices of the Music Publishers’ Association in Southampton Row this morning, at the invitation of James Sterling, Head of BBC Music.  The meeting had been arranged to coincide with the launch of this year’s BBC Introducing Live event at Tobacco Dock, which is to run from 31 October to the 2 November.

Representatives from the industry, including UK Music, MPG, AIM and BPI, were around the table and we all contributed a stream of ideas and thoughts on how to develop the event following the success of the second BBC Introducing Live in November 2018.

We look forward to a landmark event and our considerable thanks to James for the opportunity to be involved.
