The Association of Independent Music (AIM) has unveiled the line-up for AIM Sync 2023, its global sync conference and marketplace.
The virtual event will take place on 21 February, with speakers including Toby Williams, Music Supervisor at Leland Music; HotHouse Music Managing Director Lynden Campbell; Mitch Page, Senior Label Relations Manager at Amazon Music; Beggars Group Head of Licensing and Creative Emma Lomas; and Robin Buckley, Senior Creative at Ninja Tune.
The event brings together the independent music community with music supervisors in film, gaming, TV, advertising and brands. It will also include three concurrent live streams featuring expert-led panels and workshops, as well as the conference’s staple market overview.
The 2023 AIM Sync Awards will also be unveiled at the conference, celebrating the year’s most innovative syncs in independent music and the teams behind them. Nominations are open for the two award categories — ‘Music Supervisor of the Year’ and ‘Independent Sync of the Year,’ recognising the best sync placements in the independent music landscape.
Gee Davy, COO at AIM, says, ‘Sync licensing and brand partnerships have seen significant innovation over the last few years, with streaming TV, in-game and the start of Web 3.0 opportunities adding to the mix. These innovations alter traditional deal structures as well as creating new revenue streams for creators and the businesses and teams who invest in and work with them, so it’s vital to keep up to date. Sync continues to be an important source of income as well as an effective tool for artists to reach new audiences so we designed AIM Sync to help professionals understand, participate in and capitalise on the sync and brand partnership opportunities available today.’
Tickets for AIM Sync are available here, with discounted prices for members and friends of AIM, as well as various other trade organisations.
