Details have been announced about this year’s edition of Edinburgh-based music business conference Wide Days, which will take place at the city’s Teviot Row House on 11 and 12 Apr. In addition to sessions on developing new talent artistically and commercially, this year’s event will also have a focus on the role music can have in boosting tourism, and on how the music and tourism industries could better work together.

Co-organiser Olaf Furniss told CMU: “There are many areas where the music and tourism sectors complement each other and there is huge potential for closer cooperation. We aim to highlight some exciting collaborations and the programme is designed to be of use to everyone from emerging artists seeking new audiences, to state tourism organisations”.
