SMRI & Soundreef have a partnership that will provide IHF members with quality rights cleared music resulting in 50% net savings on your current IMRO & PPI background music rights costs.

This can result in annual savings of between €1,000 to €2,500. As IMRO charges, for the areas where Soundreef is exclusively used, will no longer apply.

Try it for FREE - We are so confident in the quality of this music that you can try our service for free for the first month and cancel at any time during that month with no obligation.


Soundreef manages the rights of over 43,000 songwriters and music publishers worldwide. Their music catalogue, licensed via Soundreef Media Service, is used in over 60,000 business premises of all types in 27 countries worldwide including major international hotel brands.

This extensive and exclusive repertoire covers all types of music genres, tempos and business types.


The first year’s annual fee is based on 50% of your current IMRO & PPI background music rights charges, resulting in an annual net saving of 50%. Which on average can mean a saving of between €1,000 to €2,500 annually.

*This is a time-sensitive offer - Sign-up before IMRO renewal.

To secure this 50% cost saving, your premises would need to have the free trial in place on or before 30 days past your IMRO renewal date. The vast majority of hotels have their IMRO renewal in July.

Please note: IMRO charges for background music as an annual charge, which can only be removed within 30 days of the date of renewal. So effectively you have one month from renewal to make your decision before the annual charge will be applied.

If you decide to trial the Soundreef repertoire, we will provide you with a letter for IMRO to confirm same.
