Independent Music Publishers International Forum
A network and meeting place for independent music publishers from around the world
We represent the interests of the independent music publishing community worldwide. With member companies across the globe, IMPF ensures that independent music publishers remain the powerhouse of the music world. Here is the 3rd edition of the Global Market View Report, which assembles the global market revenue and percentage share of the independent music publishing industry.
IMPF is the recipient of a Creative Europe grant to help build the capacity of independent music publishers. This IMPF network project runs for three years to March 2025 and aims to empower in the first instance, independent European music publishers, but with benefits for all IMPF members globally.
IMPF has a series of online webinars and events in place. Your input as to how these might serve you best in terms of topics, timing and format is most welcome. A copy of the Meetings and Events Calendar can be found here.
