Pack your bags & road cases: Breaking into the international marketplace

Building a global network in the music industry is so important if you want to earn a living as a musician. Who is going to represent your music in different territories, and how can you get booked at major conferences, festivals and events? It’s all about being export-ready, budgeting your cash for the right events, and timing your travel to meet the buyers and tastemakers that you can do business with around the world.

But export is so much more than just buying a plane ticket, a delegate badge and showing up! Learn the nitty gritty of international trade as a Canadian artist or company, and familiarize yourself with the bodies that can support and elevate your investments!
