The Great Escape Convention is the programme of events specifically for the 3500 music industry delegates who attend the festival each year.
It brings together music business professionals from across the globe who – through our programme of conferences, conversations, parties and receptions – can connect to, learn from and debate with leading players from across the wider music business – expanding their own networks as they go. The Great Escape is truly the music industry’s convention of networking.
The TGE:CONVENTION kicks off the day before the TGE festival running over four days from Wednesday 8th to Saturday 11th May.
There are six key strands within the TGE:CONVENTION. These include three full-day conferences presented by CMU INSIGHTs, plus a series of high profile in conversations, sessions presented by our industry partners, and the DIY programme for future music industry talent. The themes and topics of all convention panels and sessions will be announced early 2019.
In addition to the core six strands, TGE delegates also get access to a number of parties and receptions hosted by our industry partners, plus priority access into all the TGE festival venues, subject to capacity.
