International Matchmaking Event 2007

The third edition of the International Matchmaking Event will be once again held during Popkomm 2007. Small and medium sized companies from the music business, as there are labels, agents, distributors, managements, publishers, producers and others, are invited to meet their potential businesspartner.
In cooperation with Berlin Partner, the inward investment organisation for Berlin, and Popkomm the event is hosted by Austrade/Australian Trade Commission (AUS), Buma Cultuur (NL), Bureau Export de la Musique Francaise Berlin/UBIFRANCE (F), Catalan Institute for the Cultural Industries/ICIC (ES), International Trade Canada (CAN) and UK Trade & Investment (GB).

Following the success of the five-country multilateral one-on-one meetings in 2006 this year‘s meetings will include two new partners - Austrade, the Australian Trade Commission and Buma Cultuur, a foundation dedicated to the promotion and support of Dutch Music - and concentrated into one day on the grounds of the Popkomm trade music fair. Music professionals from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Netherlands and the Spanish region of Catalonia (Barcelona), will have the opportunity once again to enhance their commercial contacts during pre-scheduled meetings, to locate international business partners and refresh last year‘s meetings. A get-together during the event will offer an additional opportunity for exchange and for further developing individual contacts.
