SOUND DEVELOPMENT is the first-ever conference bringing together the property development sector with the music and creative industries. It explores stronger and better strategies to develop and champion better spaces and places. The conference features leading thinkers across property development, the public sector and the music and creative industries, championing cases of successful music-led economic and cultural development(s). 


From London to Amsterdam, Toronto to Berlin, and Kunming to Cape Town, music-led development is improving new builds, regeneration and town centre developments.

Sound Development explores how music has supported residential, commercial and town/city centre development, proposing new ways to look at the cities we’re building, rebuilding, improving and changing.


Sound Development features a series of executive TEDx-style talks and panels inspired by our sister events, Music Cities Convention and Music Tourism Convention.
