The agency sector has evolved more than any other during the past two years as hundreds of experienced staff were furloughed, made redundant, or simply left their places of employment – some to launch new independent operations, arguably widening the scope for artists and acts seeking representation. As live entertainment slowly resumes, session chair Tom Schroeder will examine the changing agency landscape and what it means for clients and promoter partners, while quizzing a mix of major agency executives and newly independent business owners about the challenges and opportunities facing them in the year ahead – and how they can co-exist in what might be a brutally fierce market.
