LIVE PANEL

From the Festival Forum to The Agency Business 3.0, our popular weekly series of livestreamed panels are available to watch on demand

IQ Focus was a weekly series of livestreamed panels that debuted in May 2020, inviting heavyweights from the international live music business to discuss issues ranging from the trials and tribulations of a pandemic to the systemic racism brought to light by Blackout Tuesday, and everything in between.

But it hasn’t all been doom and gloom. The Innovation Session heard panellists discuss the flurry of innovation, fledgling business models, and new ideas that have come out of the coronavirus crisis. Staying Safe & Sane During Covid presented expert opinions on how to protect the mental health and wellbeing of music professionals and artists. What all these sessions have had in common is a sense of optimism, opportunity and determination, as our industry forges ahead into the unknown.

The featured session above – The Lost Causes – aired in August 2020, and saw specialists discuss the impact of Covid on key causes and topics across the business.
