Produced by A&R Worldwide, a global music, media and technology agency, MUSEXPO 2018 took place at the W Hotel Hollywood for its 20th global edition from April 29th to May 2nd. Each year, the event offers its attendees an in-depth analysis of the global music landscape from leading executives and innovators across all facets of the industry.

MUSEXPO also provides its attendees unique, exclusive insights and opportunities from the global music synchronization arena. This year’s event covered all aspects of the worldwide synch business including film, TV, gaming, advertising and brand partnerships.

Engelbert Humperdinck had the opportunity to meet numerous distinguished music industry professionals.  Most importantly, he brought along his daughter, Louise Dorsey, to attend MUSEXPO 2018 with him.

This year, the event honored BBC Radio 1 and 2 by giving the 2018 International Music Icon of the Year Award to BBC Radio (UK) Director, Bob Shennan.  Shennan has been at BBC Radio since 1987, originally hired as a trainee sports producer for BBC Sports.
