ELMA co-founders, members and partners meet in Milano for the first General Assembly

 In Elmnet News

After 2 years of intensive work, networking, lobbying and project development activities at european level, time has come to organise the first official General Assembly of the European Live Music Association.

The moment and place were not chosen by hazard as ELMA member Assomusica Association is a supporter of the Milano Music Week  and the meeting place is the Innovation Room, the Sala that our Italian hosts have granted for the occasion of our very 1st official ELMA General Assembly, on the first day of the Linecheck Festival & Meeting.
