AIM’S INDIECON 2018 will return to Glazier’s Hall, London, this year, welcoming 450 music industry professionals and artistes to a day of seminars, discussions and roundtable events.

AIM marketing and event director Lara Baker says that the conference will field speakers who are of particular interest to independent labels and DIY artistes.

“It’s a chance to hear from and debate with those who are navigating the same challenges, and to discuss the most beneficial ways of growing independently,” she says.

The event, which has announced speakers including Vidhi Gandhi [A&R manager, Ninja Tune], Victor Zaraya [president, Razor & Tie], Jane Third [chief creative officer, PIAS], Kim Bayley [chairman, Entertainment Retailers Association], will deal with a broad spread of subjects, with significant attention paid to the artistes themselves.

“We had huge success discussing mental health last year, so that will be making a welcome return as part of the day’s events,” says Baker.

“But this time around we’re focusing more on the opinions of DIY artistes, and will be hosting a roundtable discussion with numerous artistes currently performing at different levels but all acting independently.”

Tickets for the event on 8 February, are available from £75 for members of AIM and £162 for non-members.
