During the conference representatives of venues and festivals, record labels, music publishers, producers and artist managers, plus touring and brand relationship agencies will be in Rotterdam to network, share their know-how, and do business. The daytime programme includes matchmaking initiatives aimed at teaming up individuals with complimentary skill-sets, lectures and debates focused on the current and future music industry featuring the people who live it every day, as well as interactive and online technology workshops. In addition, the event also aims to create links with representatives from creative industries such as video games, TV commercials and film-makers.

Buma, initiator of the Amsterdam Dance Event, EuroSonic Noorderslag Conference, Buma NL, Toonzetters and Jazzdag, intends to grow Buma Rotterdam Beats into an international conference where know-how is shared, business deals are done and where the best new talent is presented to an international audience.

Buma Rotterdam Beats is organized by the The Buma Rotterdam Beats Foundation, an initiative of Buma and De Nieuwe Oogst.
