Find Out How To Profit On The Vinyl Comeback At Berlin Conference May 2-3
BERLIN, GERMANY – After two successful events in the U.S., Making Vinyl brings to Europe for the first time its B2B conference celebrating vinyl’s global rebirth on May 3 at the Meisteraal.
It's the same physical space where David Bowie recorded “Heroes,” and Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, U2, R.E.M. and other major artists recorded LPs elsewhere in the building at Hansa Studios.
Bowie producer Tony Visconti will share in a specially recorded video welcome his memories of working in the majestic room.
“We had a hunch that we were onto something with a B2B conference devoted to vinyl's comeback, and the outpouring of comments that it’s been the best business conference they’ve ever attended has been especially gratifying,” says Making Vinyl executive producer Bryan Ekus, president of Colonial Purchasing, which is collaborating with the MEDIA-TECH Association on the Berlin event next spring.
Major pressing plant CEOs including Michal Sterba (GZ Media, Czech Republic) and Alban Pingeot (MPO, France) will explain in Berlin future investment strategies, while several newer pressing facilities will reveal why they have invested millions of euros into physical media in the digital age.
Record Store Day co-founder Michael Kurtz will lead conversations with RSD European representatives on the prospect of market expansion, best practices, as well as the success stories of how vinyl records can be a profitable investment in the development of the music industry.
Also, on display will be the latest technological developments in HD Vinyl, how to make vinyl records more sustainable and efficient with Green Vinyl, and the world’s leading equipment manufacturers and raw materials suppliers catering to this growing market.
Pink Floyd designer Aubrey Powell will make a slide presentation about the design firm’s iconic cover images for the band and others among rock’s vanguard.

Kicking off the event is the World of Physical Media conference, organized by the Media-Tech Association, with a focus on other physical formats, such as audio cassettes,
CDs, and Blu-ray discs.
Making Vinyl is produced by the Colonial Purchasing and supported by Record Store Day International, the Entertainment Retailers Association, and the British Phonographic Industry.
Making Vinyl debuted in Detroit in November 2017 with a keynote by Jack White and the event was held again in October 2018, probing the astounding comeback of a physical media format thought not long ago to be nearly defunct, only to reemerge as a deluxe product that has seen double-digit growth for more than a decade.
