For the first time Making Vinyl, the B2B event focused on the record industry, takes place in Berlin. On May 2 – 3 label managers, pressing plant owners, packaging specialists, artists and many more meet in Studio Two of Meistersaal, the same physical space where David Bowie, Depeche Mode, U2 and many epic albums were recorded by Hansa Studios. Bowie producer Tony Visconti will share via video memories of working in the majestic room.

The next generation of making records

During those two days industry leaders will share the secrets of success in vinyl mastering, record pressing, and killer packaging. Major pressing plant CEOs including Michal Sterba (GZ Media, Czech Republic) and Alban Pingeot (MPO, France) will explain their future investment strategies, while several newer pressing facilities will reveal why they have invested substantially into physical media in the digital age.
