What are the hot topics for Palma 2023; we are ready to explore whatever it is that matters to you


All About the Song: How publishers can support authors and songwriters
We look at the creative side of songwriting, and how our respective organisations can assist, support, and creatively inspire international synergies to develop a greater interactive global songwriting community.

The State of Global Rights Management An international perspective on rights management, the challenges facing rights-holders, and discussions around creating a better eco-system for faster, more accurate remuneration. 

Showcase Canada An in-depth look at the Canadian music market and the opportunities it presents for both artists and publishers globally. 

Something to Synch About Music for audio/visual media has evolved to become a lucrative revenue stream for rights-holders in recent years – but the sync market has become more competitive than ever as a result. Here, key players on all sides of the process will explain how to make the most of this area.

Early Data Management: How soon is too soon? As the modern music eco-system becomes more complex, effective data management has become a lynchpin to successful music businesses everywhere. In this panel, we’ll hear from data management experts about when rights-holders need to get to grips with their data, and how best to manage it at various stages of growth. 

New Frontiers: AI, video games and the metaverse While technology has created brand new opportunities for music rights-holders, in billion-dollar, blockbuster games and limitless virtual frontiers, it has also caused many to question the very foundations of our copyright system, with artificial intelligence becoming ever more advanced. We’ll look at how this pertains to music, how to thrive in virtual worlds as well as the real world, and how human and AI creation can coexist.

Diversity in our industry Why we need to continue to strive towards greater diversity across the music industry; what progress has been made and why there is still so much more to do. We’ll discuss how to create inclusive cultures, better companies, and a richer creative output.
