Music makes an impact - The Music Impact Study

We all love Music. A world without music? Unimaginable. For decades, background music has been a loyal companion during our grocery shopping in the supermarket or while dining in our favorite restaurant. Interestingly, the impact of background music on sales figures of retailers and in gastronomy is still not finally scientifically clarified. With our large-scale Music Impact Study (MIS), we aim to understand the impact of music on sales more deeply – and try to quantify it. You can find all important information about the MIS and interesting findings of our studies here on this website. The study is being conducted on behalf of GEMA. Check back here regularly as we will successively publish the progress and interim results of the study.

To achieve the best possible results, we work with a renowned, international team of experts and partners during the different phases of the study (see below).
