One of the highlights of annual music industry tradeshow Midem is its Visionary Monday conference strand, where thought leaders from the music business and beyond share their thoughts about the future.
With music and technology so tightly intertwined these days, there’s sure to be a lot to interest you, dear The Next Web reader. Samsung’s TJ Kang (who we spoke to yesterday) and Ford CTO, Paul Macarenas will discuss the connected future of the content industry, Rackspace’s Robert Scoble will look at the impact of wearable computing, sensors, big data, social, and location on the music business, and themes like how artists can leverage new technology will be explored. There’s also the chance to find out who won the Midemlab startup competition.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
So, watch, learn and enjoy. The full programme is listed below the video embed.
