Publisher Matchmaking

For the second time
, WOMEX will be offering Matchmaking for music publishers free of charge, following its success at WOMEX 10. The event aims to promote networking opportunities at WOMEX and bring interested business partners together.

WOMEX 11 Matchmaking will be orientated towards music publishers who want to offer their services as a sub-publisher and/or are looking for sub-publishers in other areas of the world. Due to its high proportion of international delegates, WOMEX is the ideal platform for this. Last year 30 publishers from 17 countries took part in the WOMEX Matchmaking event.

On Friday, 28 October, an introduction to the Matchmaking at WOMEX 11 will be provided by a Conference Session entitled: Competition Among Collecting Societies: How to Evaluate their Services and Quality. It will be chaired by Martin Schaefer (Germany), Boehmert & Boehmert with Frank Dostal (Germany), GEMA and Jakob Hüttel (Denmark), KODA

Birgit Böcher, Deputy Managing Director of the German Music Publishers' Association (DMV), states: "The matchmaking offered at WOMEX has our full support. It is an extremely valuable service for publishers/sub-publishers who are looking for relevant business partners in specific territories."

Stephen Navin, Chief Executive of Music Publishers Association (UK), notes: "The Music Publishers Association is very pleased to support WOMEX, who will once again be offering a matchmaking service to publishers attending the 2011 event. As the UK is a net exporter of music it is extremely important for UK publishers to develop strong representation in all major territories. WOMEX is an excellent opportunity for publishers to do business, to meet old contacts and to form new relationships. The matchmaking sessions on offer will help publishers to derive maximum benefit from their time at WOMEX."

The Matchmaking is supported by DMV, the German Music Publishers' Association; VUT, the Association of Independent Music Companies from Germany and MPA, UK's Music Publishers Association.
