There's something quite special about traveling to a new place with a group of like-minded strangers. The relationships I built at WOMEX have been profoundly helpful for the growth of my business, and the artist showcases were innovative and inspiring. Thank you for an incredible experience. I'll be back!
WOMEX is a well-run world music conference and is definitely worth attending if you want to network with music professionals from around the globe.
A WOMEX registration provides access to all WOMEX events, plus a 1-year membership to virtualWOMEX.
Speakers and Showcase Artists
If you are an officially selected WOMEX conference speaker or a WOMEX showcase artist representative you will receive a free registration. If not, you will have to pay like everybody else to join the party.
WOMEX is a strictly no-guest-list event, but we do try to keep our registration fees as low as possible. So if you plan to come, be smart and register early to keep your expenses to a minimum.
Fighting for funding (local, national, international, cultural or commercial) for your WOMEX visit is a good way to educate public and private structures that music is a major force in both global trade and cultural exchange; and hopefully it will add to your budget at the same time.
When two people from the same company register at the full price, every person who registers as part of that same company thereafter receives a discount rate.
We care about the next generation of music professionals! Therefore WOMEX offers a special student price of 150 euro + 10% VAT, subject to capacity. The registration will be valid for all five days and is exclusively reserved for those enrolled in a student programme leading to a high school or academic degree or equivalent qualification, who attend WOMEX in a learning capacity and not on behalf of a running business.
Valid and current student credentials are mandatory. A student registration does not include a full virtualWOMEX account (no public virtualWOMEX profile and no access to the client database). If you are entitled to student price, simply register online, check the box "student" when you are entering your personal delegate data – about half way through the registration process – and send a copy of your student ID to email@example.com. Welcome to the WOMEX community!
Journalists play a vital role in the dissemination of music and in keeping the important discourse on this art form alive. WOMEX acknowledges this by offering a reduced rate to journalistic media professionals, subject to approval.
If you are a delegate who will attend WOMEX first and foremost in your role as a journalist or as a professional involved in the editorial work of a music media company, you are invited to register for our special Media Rate. Simply check the "Media registration" box when you are entering your personal delegate data – about half way through the registration process – and send a copy of your valid and current press credentials to firstname.lastname@example.org. After confirmation from our communications department, you will be granted the discounted Media Rate registration price.
Please watch out for dubious services call ups or misleading letters from fraudulent expo companies, offering hotel services or tricking you into payment for directory services. This is a fraud!
