International Artist Managers’ Association (IAMA)

For the last seven years, PPL has attended the annual conference of the International Artist Managers’ Association (IAMA).

This conference brings together a large number of IAMA members from across the world to address industry developments within classical music such as new technology and economic issues. While IAMA members in attendance were primarily artist managers, they were joined by orchestra representatives and other influential music bodies.

Held across three days and with over four hundred attendees, this year’s event was in Helsinki, Finland, with an extra day to showcase classical music in Tallinn, Estonia. Once again, the conference proved an excellent opportunity for PPL to build and maintain relationships with the artist management companies in particular. It is our best chance each year to ensure their artists are up to date with developments in both in the UK and overseas, to complete repertoire analysis on behalf of our members and to provide a forum both for IAMA and its members to raise queries. Through our annual attendance we are pleased to have built a firm and lasting relationship with the artist management community in the classical music sphere.
