This session will focus on some of the key regional music services from across the globe. While the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and YouTube/Google may be more dominant internationally it's vital that there are more localised services who have a deeper understanding of a particular market, region or types of music. Streaming and muisc servicesshould never be a one size fits all market. But the question of how the more localised services can best compete with and distinguish themselves from the bigger beasts is an increasingly important one as the streaming landscape evolves. This panel will hear from companies behind leading localised music services and hear how they compete with the bigger players and how they see their services developing.
