  • Representing the sector at all levels of government, its agencies and other interest groups
  • Creating pro-active public relations and communications internally and externally

“We believe music making is a life enhancing and life changing activity that should be enjoyed by everyone”

All of the above is only made possible by the support of our members and the more members we have, the more we can do for the good of the industry!

Be part of a dynamic community

The MIA brings together the many diverse parts of the music industry ranging across suppliers, wholesalers, retailers and publishers. We liaise with many other music bodies in the UK and worldwide in order to see and communicate the “big picture” to our members.

Receive a constant flow of industry information

The MIA publishes a daily e-bulletin, MIAnews, which provides information, news and views of interest to members. We also send out ad hoc information throughout the year on topics as varied as retail ideas, charitable events and petitions to lobby the Government.

Influence the success of our industry

The MIA is recognised by the UK Government as being the “lead body” for our industry. The level of influence and contribution we can make to governmental policy in relation to our industry is dependent on us speaking for as many companies in our industry as possible.

You’ll be in great company when you join! Details of our current members, including those who have recently joined the MIA, can be found here.

What happens next?

After your completed application form has been received, your nominated referees will be contacted and references requested. Once these have been received and approved, an invoice will be sent out for your membership subscription. As soon as you have paid the invoice a membership pack will be sent to you and you are then a member with entitlement to all the membership benefits. The whole process takes on average three weeks depending on the speed of response from referees and method of payment.
