CIMA Members Virtual B2B Opportunity: AIM House TGE Goes Virtual

Posted on
May 5, 2020

Every year at The Great Escape, The Association of Independent Music (AIM) hosts AIM House, a hub for independent music businesses. Due to the cancellation of TGE 2020, AIM House has been adapted into a virtual conference that will take place on Friday, May 15 for the full day. The virtual events will include panels, case studies and speed networking sessions live-streamed for free. Themes of discussion will focus on business areas that are still viable during Covid-19 – practical measures that you can learn from and enact straight away.

As this event is supported by the Worldwide Independent Network (WIN), all WIN association members are able to join. Through that, CIMA invites our members to attend this free full-day event as delegates. RSVP here.

Please note the time for this event is in BST and runs from 10:00 – 19:00 BST. 

The full schedule of programming can be found at

Thanks to our partnership with AIM House, you are also invited to take part in speed networking sessions at this event. This is a great chance to meet with the leading independent rightsholders and music businesses from the UK and around the world, make connections and share knowledge. Each session will be conducted through Zoom, last for a total of 10 minutes and time differences will be accounted for when organizing meetings.

To register your interest, simply add your details to this Typeform before the end of the week, and AIM will be in touch with information on how to sign up. Please feel free to contact AIM by emailing with any questions.
