12.30pm: Vinyl – from playing to paying (in association with The Record Republic)

A 50 minute Q&A where The Record Republic will be presenting their model for vinyl production and sale that will show you how:

1) You make good financial returns out of vinyl runs from 300 units upwards from both new releases and past catalogue.

2) You can do this with potentially little or no upfront costs.

3) You can keep all the rights to your music. And it gets better….

We will be joined on stage by partner companies, The Art of Music and The Logical Choice Group.

The Art of Music will be talking about exciting and innovative projects that literally bring music to life through a beautifully packaged combination of original art, photography and of course music.

Appealing to fans, collectors and audiophiles alike, the revenue potential is potentially huge.

Think “a 21st century coffee table book that sounds as good as it looks” and you are halfway there.

The Logical Choice Group are the people that make this happen. With a pedigree that is second to none, they deliver a seamless and end-to-end creative and bespoke content & production solution for your ideas and can answer any questions about how they can help make your ideas come to life….
