Alongside the panels and workshops, Pivotal will feature several networking opportunities. These will include the well-received speed surgeries from the first year which again involve the main sponsors and others to be announced. As well as the speed surgeries, several other networking events will run throughout the day and give professionals and artists the chance to build relationships and develop new contacts throughout the day.
“I am thrilled that Pivotal is coming back for a second year to the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. After it’s inaugural year last year and the success of it we are excited to continue to build upon that and involve some incredible partners and sponsors at this years event. The Birmingham and wider Midlands music scene is growing massively and Pivotal is here to continue to help develop the infrastructure of the industry in the city and shine the light on the talent that exists across the region.”
Chris Rogers, Pivotal Music and Fat Penguin Management
"We are delighted to announce our partnership with Pivotal Music Conference for 2019. Since ACM Birmingham was established we have always endeavoured to embrace and immerse ourselves within the local music industry on a creative and business basis. In my frequent visits to the city of Birmingham, I have realised that the city has its own microcosm of the music industry and does not have to rely on what is going on musically in London, Manchester or any other major city. I see the Pivotal Music Conference as the Midlands equivalent of The Great Escape event that will attract a whole host of influential and creative professionals and organisations from all over the world. We look forward to participating in all the events and seminars and showcasing the true talent that we have within our campus."
David Cronen – ACM
