The Urban Network and MIQ, two of the industry’s most respected and longest-running conferences and print publications, have banded together and rebranded to explore exciting new ventures for the music community.

In the near future, customers of both companies can expect The Urban Network to keep its readers informed about important music industry topics and issues. It will include more visual content and offer more interviews with influencers, high-ranking executives and music creators to fully serve the music community.

As part of a long-term strategy, The Urban Network aims to become a full-service brand that caters to the entertainment industry and is relevant from a cultural and lifestyle perspective – fashion, film , television, sports, etc. Asked about the new joint venture, Lindsay Guion, President of MIQ, President and CEO of The Urban Network and Founder of Guion Partners said, “We are very excited about this new, rebranded company. In its first year back, The Urban Network will stay true to its name by hosting networking events, including a planned R&B summit and conference in the fall.

David A. Mitchell, Publisher of MIQ and President of The Urban Network, is also thrilled with the partnership, saying, “The past year has been pretty tough for me. I faced personal health issues. I was a full time caregiver and lost my mother. Sometimes life throws a curve ball at you and you have to put things on hold. I’m thrilled to partner with Lindsay and venture into this new era for The Urban Network and Music Industry Quarterly.
