Lauded and awarded for its consistent commitment to the broader South African music industry, MEX’s incredibly productive and positive 10th anniversary year ran from 10 to 20 September 2020 with a wealth of quality international and local speakers.
With the overall industry decimated in the face of the COVID-19 fallout, #MEX20’s annual conference remains critical to surviving and succeeding in a world that remains in financial free-fall.
Despite 2020 being the most challenging in MEX’s decade of dedication, investment and global outreach, Music Exchange 2020 (#MEX20) opened its annual industry-focused indaba to the world to rave reviews and appreciation.

Over the past 10 years, MEX has actively informed, partnered and brokered with some of the biggest and most influential players and institutions, with the sole purpose of elevating, educating and sharing a wealth of learning from all four corners of the planet and 2020s #MEX20 was no different.

If anything, #MEX20 offered a global audience, directly or indirectly professionally affected by the pandemic, an opportunity to explore the possibility of change in recovering and rising above a year that’s riddled with uncertainly and confusion. All 10 sessions continue to be hosted until 30 September 2020 for those who may have missed out at the start of this year’s indaba.

MEX has, over the past decade, become synonymous with offering a variety of specialist speakers across a plethora of disciplines, from publishing, live performance, production, PR and marketing, song-writing and all legal aspects associated with nurturing and growing the overall entertainment ecosystem.

MEX has welcomed and hosted the likes of composer Dr Trevor Jones, musician and producer Bryan Michael Cox, Stuart Rubin, The Orchard’s Ben Oldfield, Mark Murdoch, Mos Def, Tim Renner, Sipho Mabuse, Tom Novy, Karen Zoid, RJ Benjamin and AKA, among many more, all in an impressive lead up to this year’s impressive list of recorded speakers.
