Event Details

Celebrating 75 years of the LP Record!  

The vinyl record industry will congregate in Minneapolis at the Lowes Minneapolis Hotel on June 7-8, 2023, with enhanced evening events to include live music and exceptional networking.

Marking our sixth year, Making Vinyl Minneapolis will focus on the business aspects of sustaining profitable growth amid rising prices, considerable supply chain issues, and raw materials shortages.

2023 also marks the 75th anniversary of CBS Labs on June 18, 1948, officially unveiling the Long-Playing (LP) record at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. The conference also coincides with the June 7 birthday of Minneapolis native Prince, who died in 2016. Prince would have been 65 years old. His records – catalog and vault revelations – continue to be big sellers on vinyl.

All aspects of the vinyl comeback will be explored to keep the retail and e-commerce supply chain teeming with new releases and reissues of previously released material. Vinyl’s current popularity –15 years of double-digit growth – defies all technological and economic logic in the digital age.

Yet, given the immense expense of mounting such an operation continues to attract new financial investment, as the undeniable appeal of such a deluxe product shows no signs of slowing down. Find out on June 7-8, 2023, in Minneapolis from the experts who will share their secret formula to success.
