WINCON returns for in-person conference at Indie Week


WINCON is WIN’s annual conference for the network of independent music trade associations. In this event our members get together to share knowledge and resources, to learn from each other, and to celebrate being part of a global community.

After two years of virtual meetings during the pandemic, in 2022 WINCON returns as an in-person conference taking place at A2IM Indie Week in New York on June 14.

Throughout the day, representatives of associations from around the world will discuss topics such as advocacy and communicating the value of music; share best practices for the financial sustainability of their organisations; and provide examples of successful networks and how to create international networking opportunities for independent music companies.

WIN members will also have the opportunity to meet with Jim Mahoney, Merlin’s SVP, Member & Partner Success, for an exclusive ‘In Conversation’ session.
