MUSEXPO opens up to opportunities as global sync market continues to grow
According to the International Federation of The Phonographic Industry’s 2017 report, the global recorded music industry’s revenue from the use of music in advertising, film, games, television, on-demand and brand partnerships made up 2% of 2016’s overall US$15.7 billion.
This was a 2.8% rise from 2015, which itself had shown a 7% growth from the year before.
The Los Angeles based global meet MUSEXPO, a conference which aims to inspire new ideas and business innovation with a global focus, announced this morning the addition of leading sync executives to its speakers and attendees lists.
