INTERNATIONAL MUSIC BUSINESS RESEARCH DAYS

International Music Business Research Days is an annual academic conference. The conference brings scholars from many disciplines together with music business professionals every second year in Vienna and in an international location each other year. The conference provides a platform for the presentation of the latest music business research, and a forum for debate and the exchange of ideas.

 

The field of music business studies is multidisciplinary; scholars who research the economics of the arts, musical creativity, the sociology of music, the law, culture and technology come together for this event in order to enhance our understanding  of the creation, dissemination, and reception/consumption of music.

 

 

The full program from the conference, as well as papers presented, audio recordings and a full conference archive is available via the following link:
