Principal Lecturer at the University of Westminster Kienda Hoji said: “The Ultimate Seminar comes to the University of Westminster for the fifth time, and we are very happy once again to be partners in this exciting and powerful music business event. Particularly because it aligns well with the University of Westminster’s own position at the forefront of music and music business education.”
The University of Westminster works to support innovative programmes that help educate and inspire the next generation leaders. Both staff and students will be present at the event.
When speaking about the event Cre8ing Vision founders, Kwame Kwaten, Nicola Charles and Andrea Euell said: “The seminar is massively important to the UK music industry. It’s where tomorrow’s creatives and industry leaders meet today’s Presidents and Managing Directors to talk about the business of music.”
Other label figureheads, A&Rs, music publishers, artist managers, artists and songwriters will also be present at the seminar.
