While you might not be able to make the trip, there are plenty of channels through which you can watch, engage and participate in midem’s exciting programming.
The midemblog will be the hub of live coverage, with conference reports, videos, interviews and a daily, crowdsourced wrap of midem concerts. Stuart Dredge will provide daily business wraps, and Reed MIDEM’s Johannah Cantwell will provide an essential overview of the event.
Twitter will also provide access to the conference, with livetweets & other key updates via @midem and the #midem hashtag. Add #festival for concert tweets, and #vmon for Visionary Monday insights on January 28. Tweetwalls in the Palais and Debussy Auditorium will also encourage conversation.
Conference videos will be posted in full to midem’s youtube channel which will also feature the Visionary Monday livestream January 28 (11.00-18.30 CET). To access all this great material and more, visit [www.midem.com](http://www.midem.com)
