The IMMF is a global non-governmental organization (NGO) which has as its members national federations (21) of music managers in 18 countries. These federations are individual national country chapters (often called MMF) which are comprised of individual managers and management companies. Its mission is to ensure the safeguarding, respect and protection of the moral and professional interests of its members and the worldwide community of music managers.
The IMMF fosters awareness of the importance of the rights of artists as the creators of copyright, and therefore of culture, and the essential role which managers play in protecting the rights and role of their clients in this regard. IMMF and MMF activities include participation in legislation and policy matters regarding copyright at WIPO and nationally to provide education and presentations at music industry conferences (such as MIDEM, SXSW, Popkomm, CMJ, Musexpo, Eurosonic, Folk Alliance, etc.) around the world.
