THE EUROPEAN EVENT FOR PAN-HISPANIC MUSIC FAIRS
BIME PRO is launching this year the first meeting of Iberoamerican music fairs. In its quest to connect continents and reach out to the Latin American industry, BIME PRO’s next edition will feature the AMCS—Atlantic Music Conferences Symposium, bringing together ten fairs from different countries in Ibero-America.
AMCS wants to serve as a starting point for creating synergies between music industry knowledge hubs on both sides of the Atlantic. These hubs are meeting points for industry professionals, and where the most relevant music conferences in the Latin and Iberian scene take place.
We want to put on the map Latin American professional fairs among the Spanish and European professionals that participate in BIME PRO—over 2000—, thus creating new business opportunities for Europe and America. We will facilitate such business opportunities through planned working sessions (see program below) and networking opportunities (speedmeetings, Área Pro)
INTERNATIONALIZATION OF MUSIC TALENT
The importance of searching and advocating for up-and-coming music talent is unquestionable. We want to offer the most mature bands in each market the opportunity to make themselves known in other countries through the participation in professional fairs, thus taking an active role in the development and professionalization of Latin and Iberian artists.
INNOVATION & NETWORKING
We are creating a meeting point to facilitate one-on-one meetings, allowing fairs to discover innovations, products or services to include in their own fairs or introduce in their territories of reference, capitalize expenditures on suppliers, or work on subsidies and sponsorships jointly.
Allow professional Latin American fairs to obtain first-hand information about how Spanish industry organizations work, how the music industry is structured and the role of Spanish cultural institutions. Make it possible for the fairs to share in their own markets how such organizations and institutions work, to sketch areas of improvement, establish opportunities for collaboration, and facilitate contacts between both sides of the Atlantic.
EVOLUTION, FORECAST, AND TRENDS
These industry observers work jointly to develop a report on the main topics of interest/concern for businesspeople in each market. These reports must give an informed view on the evolution and trends in the Iberoamerican music industry and will be sent out to the institutions in each country of Ibero-America, for them to have a better understanding of their industry. They will also serve to develop the agendas of each professional fair. The reports will include a country-level summary of the state of the music industry in each territory. The goal is having analysis data to establish the needs, strengths and opportunities in each market in order to set short and mid-term evolution parameters. To prepare these reports, data on the music industry in each market will be requested in advance.
