This Wednesday: Music Retail during COVID-19: MIA Live Event


This Wednesday, 1st July, the MIA will bring you a live, question time style event with a panel of relevant experts. This virtual event will be a forum for discussion about the experiences had so far by retailers, and experts will be answering the key questions that have come up during the first few weeks of trading.

We previously brought you 2 well attended live events that aimed to prepare retailers for re-opening their doors to customers. You can watch them back here:

Our next event on 1st July will be an opportunity for retailers to discuss and share their first hand experiences. It will also be useful for shops that have not yet re-opened.
