ELMA partners at Tak Brzmi Miasto Showcase Conference, Krakow
Krakow, Poland 11-12 November 2016
Tak Brzmi Miasto or HEAR THE CITY 2016 is an EXPORT Conference & Festival that aims to offer everything needed to Polish Music Professionals (and not only) to concquer the world with their music!
Held on the 11&12 of November 2016, in Cracow, Poland, at the Skład Długa Venue, TAK BRZMI MIASTO tried to provide the most efficient way to export your music.
With almost 30 panel discussion, seminars, lectures and presentations musicians had the chance to hear all about it from international experts – musicians, festival organizers, managers, journalists, labels.
In a world that is becoming more and more interconnected, discussions were an absolute must for young artists and professionals who seek useful networking for promoters, managers and artists; the kind of networking that grass root talents should look for; how to generate marketing assets?
Many questions that were answered by more than 25 foreign and 30 polish music professionals. And once they were all there, organisers just had to use this opportunity to present Cracow’s best bands and venues… Besides, the real value of a music industry professional lies in personal connections; connections that leverage industry-wide experience, that fast track best-practise, and enable cost reduction and extended audiences through partnerships and co-promotion.
On the other hand, the Show Case Conference was an opportunity to draft the first touring activities and mobility for grass root talents, promoters and managers, one of the key action of the ELMA Initiative, thanks to the participation of Mr Georges Perot and Mr Marton Naray that engaged the process of development through several meetings with representatives from Central and Eastern European Music Professional networks, organisations and companies, aiming to draft and support the European development of regional partners.
