This is a special session created every year for all new delegates attending WOMEX. It will introduce you and guide you to make the best use of all the opportunities available during the five-day event. WOMEX Director Alexander Walter and WOMEX 22 jury members Marcus Gora and Marie Fol will share their advice on navigating WOMEX: how to network at the trade fair; how to get the most out of the conference; and to connect during and after the event with artists and other music professionals. They will also share tips on submitting conference, film, showcase proposals and answer your questions.
If you're new to WOMEX, this session is a must!
