The trade fair offers meeting points for all delegates and exhibits the work of labels, publishers, agents, festivals, associations and others in a trade fair format.
Lying at the heart of WOMEX, the Trade Fair – which, at WOMEX 17, consisted of more than 700 exhibiting companies from 51 countries at almost 300 stands – hums with energy and activity and is one of the top drawcards of the event. This is where the international world music community meets to do business.
The important thing about WOMEX is seeing how many people are working for the same cause, encouraging music cultures to get stronger, letting the world know about their existence and richness, which is a mutual encouragement to get on with the work! You really feel you are part of a bigger movement, and your cultural identity counts.
WOMEX is the best place to meet artists and music people from all over the world
Having meetings with people from all over the world is so enriching. Any business, big or small, can succeed on the international market. I encourage emerging music businesses to attend WOMEX. The possibilities are endless; your business does not end at the border!.
