Press release: Saturday 23rd January - Midem, Cannes
IMPALA launched its new Friends of IMPALA programme at MIDEM today to link up the whole music sector from radio to retail, digital to finance, legal to PR.
Following national successes such as AIM’s scheme, the idea is to create new pan-European synergies. The programme will be run by former IMPALA Board member and former UFI Vice President Yann Padron who will offer two levels of access:

  1. “Gold” for 2,500€, subject to certain discounts.  
  2. “Platinum” which offers more privileged access with customised approach and price tag.

For more details about Friends of IMPALA, please contact Yann Padron, There will also be an opportunity to upgrade to worldwide level through WIN through the Platinum package.

Yann Padron said: “I’m delighted to be working on this for IMPALA. This programme will bring together the most creative brains in the sector to develop new business opportunities.

Helen Smith, Executive Chair IMPALA added: “Finance is just one example. Monday’s action plan highlights investment as a commercial and political priority. Our friends programme will help us find the right partners to access the finance we need to grow the whole sector together.”
