MIRC 2013

Many of the UK’s top musical instrument dealers and industry names were at today’s MI Retail Conference and Expo at Whittlebury Hall, in Northamptonshire.┬áThe Conference in the morning proved very popular, while the afternoon’s Expo – featuring over 25 manufacturers and distributors – encouraged the majority of delegates to stay for the whole event. My MU colleague Simon Bull, Head of Membership Development, and I ran a stand and met numerous musicians and business reps. The evening saw a keenly contested Battle of the Bands, which was won by the superb and entertaining trio from Cheshire, Fantasist.
