Physical Media World Conference
Jun 4 @ 8:00 am – Jun 5 @ 4:00 pm

The 1st World Conference on Physical Media will be held in Eindhoven, Netherlands, from 4 – 5 June 2018. This conference will focus on the world of physical media, and in a large part because of the astounding resurgence of the vinyl format.

Many other formats, long thought defunct, are also following the trend set by vinyl to satisfy the tactile requirement of the buyer.

We are fortunate at having long-term members of the MEDIA-TECH Association that have been involved in the production and manufacture of physical media for the last 50 years as such we can offer a large pool of resource and experience to current companies and individuals wanting to grow or become involved in the current exciting market trends including mastering, production and manufacturing to raw material and machinery suppliers.

The conference is being hosted by the MEDIA-TECH in partnership with the Green Vinyl Project, the MEDIA-TECH Vinyl Working Group, the Pure Audio Group, and Colonial Purchasing Europe.

This is an excellent opportunity to become inspired and educated by physical media content experts and to network with colleagues and peers from around the world.

It’s time to celebrate business in physical media again…!

After 40 years of the CD, the resurgence of vinyl, the rebirth of the cassette, but also to new revenue streams in Blu-ray.

Registration will open in late-March at
