Powered by the Music Business Association, the Music Biz Nashville is uniting leaders from the global commerce, content and creative industries to discuss the future of the music business and build worthwhile international relationships that will steer the industry for years to come. Important representatives from the entire range of delivery models are attending Music Biz year by year, making it an ideal conference to meet retailers and marketing platforms alike. Physical, digital, mobile, and more, at Music Biz the top decision-makers from brick & mortar and online music retailers; streaming services; wholesalers; major and independent labels and distributors; internet radio services; aggregators; mobile service and hardware providers; data providers; information technology companies; startups; artists; songwriters; publishers; management companies; accounting and law firms are all attending.

Music Biz is taking place in the „Music City“: Nashville. Apart from being known for country music, the city has also gained worldwide fame for being home to songwriters, composers and acoustic live musicians. Reeperbahn Festival International is proudly going to take that into account by implementing an international singer/songwriter camp during all Music Biz days, presenting its results in a special showcase evening during Music Biz.

What a warm welcome in Music City! In 2019, for the first time in Nashville, we travelled with a small delegation of German music industry professionals who held a panel titled "World's Biggest Music Market: Germany" as part of the local event Music Biz. The annual conference in Nashville, organized by the Music Business Association, focuses on the digital exploitation of artistic works with the endless possibilities of Big Data – a topic that is rapidly gaining in relevance.
