music industryHere is my list of advertising, marketing and music industry events that I think are worth attending in 2016. I’m not promising that I’ll get to all of them, but these are all good events to attend for networking, seminars and to be part of future developments in the industry.

If I’ve missed any ‘must-gos’, please add them using the comments below. If you can include a link and give me some reasons why I should attend, so much the better!
