London – February 6th, 2018

Continuing its commitment to furthering education within the music industry, Vistex is proud to announce its yearlong sponsorship of the UK Music Publishers Association’s (MPA) Induction Course, a quarterly event focused on providing an all-around introduction to music publishing.

The Induction Course is led by an expert group of panelists who highlight key areas of music publishing for newcomers to the industry, including copyright royalties, sync, societies, legal issues, and data. The first 2018 Induction Course takes place on February 7th. Stephen Carlisle, Senior Business Analyst at Vistex, will be speaking on "How to Register a Song," and provide an overview of royalties within Music Maestro, Vistex’s dedicated solution for music publishers.

"Vistex has supported progress within the music industry for many years, and our solutions are used in the day-to-day operations of hundreds of music publishers throughout the world," said Amos Biegun, Vistex’s Global Head of Rights and Royalties. "We are very eager to provide a solid foundation for the next generation of industry professionals, and partnering with the MPA to support the Induction Courses was a logical next step."

Since its inception, the MPA has championed the interests of its members and committed itself to the progression and educational support of music professionals in the UK. The MPA works to promote an understanding of the value of music publishing and the importance of copyright and provides extensive training, as well as discounted rates to music industry events and conferences.
