Universal Strategies - Creating Powerful International Relations

Hip-hop is a true global force - with opportunities, defining trends and sounds and booming scenes rising in all corners of the world. In this talk ADE Beats 2019 brings together three key figures from Universal Music Group in Germany, the United Kingdom and The Netherlands to discuss how they operate and network across borders to create the best possibilities for the hip-hop, bass and beats talent they work with. They will talk about breaking international acts in their respective national markets as well as breaking acts from their own markets on an international level. And they will share how they focus collectively on creating powerful international relations between their artists, writers and producers. These industry professionals have had extensive experience both in their own country and abroad and will discuss in-depth how they build together to create new strategies and possibilities for their talent. What are the opportunities in their respective markets for artists and writers from abroad? What does it take to translate huge national success to a global scale? Find out at this exclusive talk with music industry peers.
