2017 BPI/MPA/DIT SYNC LICENSING MISSION TO LOS ANGELES

Details of the 2017 Trade Mission are available here

 

Every year, along with the Music Publishers Association (MPA) and Department for International Trade (DIT) offices in London and Los Angeles, BPI hosts an event which sees an eclectic mix of UK independent music companies travel to LA to learn about the increasingly important sync licensing market, meet and network with some of the most important music supervisors and placement executives in the TV, film, advertising and computer games markets in Los Angeles. Please find some details of previous years' missions below.
