MusicTank events feature top-drawer speakers and attract a rich and dynamic cross-industry audience; open to all, they also afford excellent networking opportunities. These are pitched at mid-level and assume a level of knowledge concerning the music industry in general, if not the subject matter itself. Past events are archived in full.

The archive typically includes (1) a detailed 15-20 page transcript - free to members and event attendees (2) a 15-minute video edit; (3) more recently (from 2014), key points captured through rich graphical summaries.
