Emma moderates this panel exploring the opportunities available for streaming in the Middle East region.
Digital music streaming in the region is in its infancy and has experienced almost none of the problems US and Europe have faced. However, the MENA region is still plagued with problems such as poor internet connection and introducing consumers to paid subscription models for music. Recently, international platforms like Spotify and Deezer entered the MENA streaming market. History has taught us that competition is always good. This discussion will focus on if it is good for both consumers and artists since it helps create more opportunities and cultivate a culture for local talent to flourish.
Panelists: Eddy Maroun, Co-founder & CEO, Anghami, Hisham Aramouny, Content, Artist Marketing & Industry Relations Director – MENA, Deezer (UAE), Moe Hamzeh, Managing Director, Warner Music Middle East (Lebanon) & Baris Zavaroglu, Director of Digital Media Services, Turkcell (Turkey).
