Making Vinyl Offenbach – Germany
Updated: Aug 23
I (Scott) headed off to Making Vinyl in Offenbach last Thursday for another great conference. It was a whirlwind of a day packed full of speakers, panels, and lots of friends from the record industry. There are always interesting topics at these events, such as “Don’t Make Assumptions About Gender & Vinyl” and “Meeting Consumer Demand When We Are At Our Capacity”. Lots of good InSite and all round pretty positive… then there was “Sorry, All With Vinyl Is Not Rosy”. While some points were good to know, this panel basically got me wondering why some of the people up there still even bother. I always like the passion for what we do and a PMA approach to things. That’s why I loved the new blood panel called “If you Build It, They Will Come”, Chris, Dominique, Albert, Sigve and Ondrej all have new plants in the making around the world and to see the raw passion for the whole thing makes what we do worth while. Unfortunately, this trip was cut short due to Lufthansa going on strike the next day so that evening I was back on the plane to Sweden. Already looking forward to the next Making Vinyl in Minneapolis June 7-8, 2023. Massive thank you to the crew who always make us feel welcome. Till next time!
