Branded Ltd announced its strongest ever list of star-studded speakers for the upcoming Digital and Music Matters. Together with its music festival, Music Matters Live, the events will be held in Singapore from 22 to 26 May 2012.
Hosted at The Ritz Carlton, Millenia Singapore, Digital and Music Matters houses the industry's elites and decision makers, and presents an extraordinary showcase of events pertaining to all that matters in music, entertainment, technology and media. Music Matters Live, held at Clarke Quay, Singapore and in partnership with SingTel, YouTube, Facebook, Viki and CapitaLand, will bring together local and international bands to gain new fans and be discovered.
Kicking off the week is Digital Matters, held in association with Asia's leading multi-channel industry association, CASBAA, from 22 to 23 May. Digital Matters provides a platform for digital entertainment businesses to come together to share ideas, breakthroughs and successes that address the issue of monetisation of digital content.
Discussions on monetising and marketing of digital publishing, mobile technologies and applications, social media and cloud services in the digital entertainment industry will be led by a suite of great international speakers, including industry leaders from Turner, YouTube, Polaroid, Anheuser-Busch InBev, SingTel, Zynga, Ubisoft, Endemol, Microsoft, Facebook, Ogilvy, Nokia, Yahoo!, comScore, Dell, MCM Entertainment Group and more.

For the first time, Digital Matters will premier its inaugural Gaming Matters workshop, produced in association with GameSpot, to cover all aspects of the 'Gamification' process. The launch of this workshop follows an exponential increase of social and online gaming over the recent years and Gaming Matters aims to help technopreneurs break into and understand more about the common challenges and opportunities available in this growing market segment.
Music Matters, held from 24 to 26 May, is a leading music industry event in the Asia-Pacific region that incorporates and energises the entire music business value chain from artist and managers to record labels, promoters and music publishers.
Into its seventh year, Music Matters will further scrutinise the challenges facing the global music industry and shine the spotlight on issues such as consumption of digital music, launching digital services in the fragmented Asian region and areas to consider when applying for new media licensing in Asia. With a strong focus on the Asian market, the conference will also drill down into growth regions in Japan, Korea, China and India, as well as zoom in on Indie music and the rise of music festivals in Asia.
Troy Carter, Lady Gaga's manager, will join the stellar line-up of speakers at Music Matters this May. Troy has been instrumental in deploying radical new marketing techniques to grow the Gaga machine into a global media and entertainment powerhouse.
