Already available, the MIDEM app provides details of the whole conference and concert programmes, as well as the speakers and artists biographies. This new tool offers the opportunity to contact MIDEM attendees via their Twitter accounts. This app, developed by Mobile Roadie, also gives access to tweets, posts, blogs and articles about MIDEM, during and after the event.

From the beginning of MidemNet, on Saturday 23rd, the MIDEM website will share new content. Video coverage of all MidemNet conferences will be available online, along with the main MIDEM conferences. Internet users will be able to follow the different debates and react via the MIDEM blog - animated 'live' by a journalist from the UK consulting and research company Music Ally. The Twitter flux of comments about MIDEM will also be available on the show's official website.

"MIDEM is adapting to new communication habits, especially when it comes to using interactive tools. The MIDEM iPhone app and the enriched website content will extend the market's reach and enlarge the amount of content available on the web. The MIDEM mobile app is an easy way for delegates to plan their conference and concert agenda during MIDEM," explains Dominique Leguern, MIDEM Director.
