BPI announce that the first international trade webinar of 2021 will be on the Chinese Music Industry, taking place on January 26th. 

Since 2007 the British Music Industry and Department for International Trade (DIT) supported by China-Britain Business Council (CBBC) have been running Trade Missions to China where a variety of UK Record Labels, Publishing Companies, Management Companies and Artists as well as other Industry Representatives have travelled to China to meet with the Chinese Music Industry. They have a week-long series of presentations from all parts of the Chinese Music Industry, with networking and bespoke meetings arranged with the aim of increasing business opportunities between the two countries.

Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the annual mission in 2020 was postponed, however we held an online event on 22 June 2020 which gave you an opportunity to hear from many of the speakers from the event.

As travel plans are still unclear for 2021 we will be hosting another webinar to give you valuable insights into this important market for UK Music companies.
