What the UK trade press had to say of the 2009 mission:
Music Week: “The BPI-led trade mission returns to Los Angeles providing UK companies with unrivalled access to the world’s largest entertainment market.”
Record of the Day: “…..delegates were unanimous in their praise of the BPI programme which had managed to connect them directly with people that they could do business with.”
What some of the 2009 mission delegates had to say:
Ross Graham (NIMIC): The whole programme and the quality of the speakers was 1st Class. The benefits of being in a cohesive small UK group were very noticeable.
Paul Bonham (Bombman): The week was amazing. It was massively informative for me as a manager. I thought the panels showed a great cross section, and being presented under the tag of UKTI and BPI felt that as delegates we were taken seriously - the mission opened many doors which would have previously been closed.
Nick Keynes (Goldust): It was superb in every way and sewed some important seeds for the future. It's great when you can do something that is not only productive but also fun.
Joseph Stopps (Mofo Hifi): The combination of the panels is excellent. It enabled me to strike up relationships with the supervisors, which is really important. There is massive love for British music out there and everyone was really receptive and keen to learn about British independent music, they were as excited to meet us as we are to meet them.
