We’re pleased to announce that Neeraj Roy, MD & CEO of Hungama Digital Media, will be joining us as a speaker at #NAMA2, our second #NAMA Conference, being held on June 28th 2013 at The ITC Grand Central, Mumbai.
Neeraj has been instrumental in the creation of the digital music business in India, and under him, Hungama has leveraged its catalogue of music to build relationships across telecom operators and online businesses – trying everything from rightback tones, music downloads, online streaming, among other things, and also expanding Hungama’s portfolio to include Video, Games and Applications. But – in our mind – it is still about music – and if there is one man who knows how to navigate the complicated world of music labels, it is Neeraj. We want to talk to him about where this industry is headed, what Hungama plans to do, and that overarching question – what do labels want (apart from money)?

Change is afoot in content ecosystem, with the rollout of online music channels, growth in smartphones, change in India’s copyright act, the clamping down of consumer fraud in mobile VAS and, we’ve recently seen something of a shocker with the shut-down of Flyte. What impact does this have on music businesses, on aggregators, and how is music going to be monetized in an environment of declining revenues on Mobile VAS, declining physical retail of music, and a sector that is impacted the most by music piracy. Also worth taking into context is the growth of YouTube as an important component of music listening, and perhaps even retailing music.
