The MIA Presents: “The Future of our Industry”


The MIA are delighted to announce our all new forum event; a thought-provoking day full of dynamic panels and networking opportunities discussing the options and future for the the Musical Instrument Industry in the UK.

This event is in partnership with NAMM, and our headline sponsor is Musikmesse.
