Women In Music 2017
We are pleased to announce the return of the important and inspiring Women In Music conference on 16th January 2017. Taking place at City Hall, we will celebrate the success and examine the challenges faced by women in the music industry. In association with Believe Digital and supported by the Mayor of London, the ninth annual AIM Women in Music event is set to be a sell-out success, with a stellar line-up of speakers already confirmed.
Tickets are available now!
Women In Music 2017 will give women (and men, who are actively encouraged to attend) the opportunity to network with key industry figures and to hear from some of the music industry’s most influential women, which this year include Carla Marie Williams (writer of Freedom from Beyonce’s hit album Lemonade), Music Week’s Women in Music Rising Star award winner Martha Kinn (Machine Management) and newly appointed London Night Czar Amy Lamé.
The night will feature an exclusive keynote interview with a female artist, to be revealed in coming weeks. There will then be two panel discussions, before the event concludes with networking drinks, allowing attendees to meet the speakers and grow their networks.
The first panel is entitled ‘Women in Music: The Next Generation’ and will see a selection of the industry’s rising stars discussing their paths to success. The second panel discussion focuses in on the notoriously male-dominated live sector. ‘Going Live: Women in Live Music’ which will consider the challenges of women working in the live music industry, the lack of female artists on festival bills and the safety of female music fans at live music venues and festivals.
Speakers at the event include:
Amy Lamé (Newly appointed London Night Czar)
Carla Marie Williams (songwriter for Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue and Girls Aloud, Founder of Girls I Rate)
Martha Kinn (Manager, Years & Years – Machine Management)
Lauren Down (MD, End of the Road festival)
Stefania Pavlou (Media Relations Manager, PRS for Music)
Kelly Bennaton (Marketing & PR, DHP Family)
Chloé van Bergen (Senior Label Manager, Believe Recordings)
The event will finish with networking drinks, giving attendees a great opportunity to make new contacts over complimentary drinks.

The event will be held from 5.30-10pm on 16th January 2017 at London’s Living Room, City Hall, The Queen’s Walk, London, SE1 2AA. This prestigious venue has spectacular views of the Thames and London Bridge, and is home to the Mayor of London.
AIM actively encourages men to attend this event. Gender equality in the music industry is good for everyone and requires the participation and support of both sexes.
