The MSG program also includes workshops, B2B meetings and the now-established conference, where all musicians meet and discuss innovations, marketing, music trends and how extraversion can make any music product go out of bounds. The conference and B2B meetings are an excellent opportunity for the music community to interact, inspire and be inspired.
