2016 Focus on Ireland

Ireland-page-header FOCUS ON IRELAND To complement the 2016 Spotlight on the UK, CAAMA (Canadian Association for the Advancement of Music and the Arts) will present an expansion to the initiative to include a Focus on Ireland at Canadian Music Week 2016 (May 2016 in Toronto). With a population of 4.8 million, Ireland is the 31st most important music market worldwide, a total trade value of recorded music revenue of $USD 40.9 million. As part of CMW’s International Buyer’s Program, the 2016 Focus on Ireland will bring key buyers, market experts and industry reps from various sectors together with the Canadian music industry in Toronto during the event’s conference schedule. Delegates from Ireland will participate in export market training sessions and share their expertise and insights while opening new trade routes for business investment and revenue potential for all in attendance. Now in its 34th year, Canadian Music Week is one of the world’s most important and longest running international music business destinations, as well as one of the biggest new music festivals in Canada showcasing global talent.  Attracting thousands of delegates from more than 30 countries each year, the event serves as a convergence point for international networking, business to business transactions, structured one-on-one meetings, and specialized export programming. * IFPI (The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry)
