ASM GLOBAL ACTS CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PLATFORM CONTINUES TO SUPPORT UPCOMING EXECUTIVE TALENT
THE NEXT GENERATION OF YOUNG EXECUTIVES AND INDUSTRY LEADERS ENCOURAGED TO APPLY FOR THE SCHEME AHEAD OF ILMC 2023
ASM Global, the world’s leading producer of entertainment experiences, venue management and event strategy, and the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) today announce that their partnership to dramatically expand the music business conference’s Alia Dann Swift Bursary Scheme, which promotes and encourages the next generation of young executive talent, will continue into 2023.
This partnership with ILMC is supported by ASM Global’s corporate social responsibility platform, ASM Global Acts, which launched in October 2021 to protect the environment, invest in people and strengthen communities around the globe.
The Bursary scheme will see 30 young executives given a place at next year’s ILMC, the world’s leading live music conference, which takes place in London from 1-3 March 2023. The invitation-only event has been the foremost meeting place for live music professionals worldwide for over 30 years, and welcomes 2,000 leading professionals across the week. Through the Bursary scheme, the selected young executives will also have access to invitation-only networking events during ILMC, and a dedicated industry mentor via the ASM Global family; a chance to share knowledge, ideas, and to build new contacts within the industry.
Chris Bray, Executive Vice President, Europe at ASM Global said, “At ASM Global we are committed to investing in people and strengthening communities all over the world. Through the company’s ASM Global Acts platform, we’re able to take action and create real opportunity for the next generation of industry leaders, so we are delighted to continue our partnership with ILMC on the Alia Dann Swift Bursary Scheme and look forward to meeting with the chosen delegates at next year’s event.”
ILMC head Greg Parmley said, “We’re thrilled to welcome ASM back for the second year as supporters of ILMC’s bursary scheme. Just how the business can encourage and foster a new and diverse range of executive talent is a primary focus for all right now, and the scheme is a firm step towards supporting the next generation of business leaders across the live sector.”
Founded in 2018, the Bursary scheme is named after the late Alia Dann Swift, ILMC’s longstanding producer who was instrumental in both bringing talent into the industry and supporting and encouraging new ILMC members.
To apply, applicants should already be working in the live music business and not have previously attended an ILMC. Full details of the bursary scheme and an application form are available here. The scheme is open to applicants internationally, and the first 10 places on the scheme are now open for application. Further places on the scheme will be released towards the event.
