From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The NVPI (Nederlandse Vereniging van Producenten en Importeurs van beeld - en geluidsdragers) (English: The Dutch Association of Producers and Importers of image - and sound carriers) is the Dutch tradeassociation of the entertainment industry. The NVPI represents most of the Dutch record companies, video distributors and game-software distributors.[1]

History

The NVPI is found in 1973 as a representative of the record companies in the Netherlands.

The NVPI represents both major and small independent producers. The (board) structure guarantees influence by every included company.
