In a world where your portfolio and skills are so easily lost in the sea of information available online – face-to-face networking has become more valuable than ever.
It allows your voice to be heard by real humans and genuine relationships and great connections made.
Manchester Music Industry Networking Events offer just that opportunity, no matter your role or status within the industry.
The ninth edition of this event took place on April 22nd, and it was bustling with creative talent.
The expansion from a ‘music networking event’ to ‘music and creative industry’ means it’s brought together an eclectic and exciting mix of professionals and students, from all walks of the industry.
Musicians and promoters to artists and illustrators to labels and tour managers, as well as offering performances from local acts and guest speakers.
Even though the event was packed almost wall-to-wall, it offered a relaxed and friendly environment to rub shoulders with others from the industry and exchange skills and contacts.

With almost entirely new faces to the event, the range of people that attended was so diverse; it covered every aspect of the industry and created a platform for the most valuable and unexpected conversations.
Not only was the event to create professional opportunities, but also to support some causes for the greater good.
It showcased donated artwork from the field notes project that will be auctioned off to raise money for the homeless in Manchester, as well as offering a platform awareness for the White Ribbon Foundation.

Artists from all over the country have contributed to the artwork for the field notes project, and the cause has become a formidable project that will see the artistic industry paving the way for real change.
The White Ribbon foundation aims to educate about and reduce violence towards women, following record-high cases of abuse at music festivals and concerts.
Offering a voice, this event created the perfect platform to showcase these two causes, giving a chance to get involved and raise awareness for professionals and students in the industry.
