Round-table discussion by «SONART - Musikschaffende Schweiz»
12 pm – 1.30 pm

In Switzerland, several organizations and institutions are actively engaged in support of contemporary music, covering varied topics such as promotion, education and additional training, events, prices, lobbying, cultural policy and other matters.  In 2015, m4music started a round-table discussion for this group of industry professionals. Participants exchange ideas and work on their implementation, e.g. joint action plans to improve Switzerland's presence in streaming services or collectively representing the pop-rock scene at the Swiss Music Council. «SONART - Musikschaffenden Schweiz» will host the round-table discussion again this year, opening it up to new issues. 
Current topics are the funding and development of pop music and the ongoing revision of copyright laws. All interested organizations are welcome to send representatives. Please get in touch with «SONART - Musikschaffenden Schweiz» ahead of time in order to place a specific topic on the agenda: christoph.trummer@sonart.swiss.
