Following the recent decision to scrap this year’s edition of Music Live, the inaugural London Music Show has also been removed from the 2010 industry calendar. The news is a further indication of the current malaise affecting the annual MI industry events schedule, and follows the July decision to pull this year’s edition of Music Live.

As with that event, organisers of the London Music Show are insistent that their show will return in 2011.

A joint statement issued by the Music Industries Association and Future placed the decision within the context of an embattled MI market: “While many music industry partners such as John Hornby Skewes, Korg, Music Force Distribution, Peavey, Roland and Sound Technology have committed to the event, it has become apparent that we will not achieve our goals for London Music Show this year as a result of exceptionally tough market conditions.

“We’re absolutely determined that the first-ever London Music Show will offer public and trade visitors and exhibitors the most exciting and interactive music show in the UK and we won’t compromise on this promise.

“The Music Industry Association and Future continue to share this vision for 2011 and we already have commitment from a number of key commercial partners for next year’s event. We’ll provide details on the 2011 event in due course. We’d like to thank the companies and enthusiasts that have shown their support for the London Music Show.”

Anyone who has purchased tickets for this year’s event will receive a full refund and is advised to contact 0871 620 7059 or visit the LMS website (link below).
