Music Biz 2014 Metadata Summit Continues Important Conversation On Digital Data Issues For Second Year

March 26, 2014 – The Music Business Association (formerly NARM and digitalmusic.org) is bringing its highly successful Metadata Summit back for a second go-round on Tuesday, May 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles during the Music Biz 2014 conference.

Last year’s inaugural summit drew more than 200 music industry executives, creating a rare forum for the discussion of digital data issues that are typically over-looked. This year’s event is expected to top that, kicking off with a keynote from Vinnie Freda of Isolation Network Inc., the parent company of INgrooves Fontana and INscribe Digital. Attendees will then receive a progress report on common metadata issues such as artist disambiguation, street date, style, and genre; updates from the major organization and database companies working on resolving these issues; a discussion on the role of music curation; a session covering royalty reporting; and the chance to openly discuss the future of the digital album.

“Without proper metadata, music services can’t operate at full efficiency and consumers can’t easily find the tracks they’re looking for, all of which leads to lost revenue that no one can afford,” said Bill Wilson, Vice President of Digital Strategy and Business Development for Music Biz. “Last year, we were happy to start the conversation on how to resolve some of the most glaring metadata issues, and it was heartening to see that so many high-powered executives share our concerns. We still have a long way to go, but a regular forum will go a long way toward ensuring high-quality digital data, and we’re happy to facilitate that discussion.”

Admission to the Metadata Summit is included in the registration price for the full Music Biz 2014 event. Tickets can also be purchased separately on EventBrite, with members paying $100 apiece and non-members paying $149 apiece.

Future of the Album

● Moderator: Kevin Arnold, OpenAura
