‘The Future of Our Industry’ – your opportunity to shape our forum


The MIA organised ‘The Future of Our Industry’ event is now less than 2 weeks away. In the lead up, we are asking for your input to influence the direction of the day…

The afternoon will be made up of four topics that each address challenges our industry will face both now and in the future. A cross-section of relevant voices from around the industry will discuss each topic in turn before opening up to the floor for further question and comment. Our 4 panels are as follows:

  • ‘If 80% of the population claim they aspire to play a musical instrument, why isn’t our industry more diverse?’
  • ‘How will a bricks and mortar store be relevant to the customer purchase journey of the future?’
  • ‘Should the Government have an obligation to support the High Street and if so how?’
  • ‘How can you run a profitable music business in the future?’

We are aiming to widen the debate and together learn more about the issues we collectively face. This is where your input comes in:

Let us know whether there are any specifics or particular questions that would be beneficial for our panels to cover. We will take your ideas and brief our industry experts to ensure that your questions are addressed throughout the event.

Please email alice@mia.org.uk with your thoughts, ideas and questions.
