2016 Spotlight on UK

UK-page-header-2CAAMA, in association with Canadian Music Week, is facilitating access for Canadian artists and labels to the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales) and Ireland.

With a population of 64.1 million, the UK is the third largest in the European Union (behind Germany and France.)  It is the second largest music market in Europe and ranked fourth worldwide with industry revenues of US$1.33 billion (*IFPI RIN 2014) and the largest performance rights market in the world.

In May 2016, at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, will be hosting labels, booking agents, festival organizers, promoters, talent buyers and industry specialists from the entertainment sectors in order to open new trade routes for Canadians who are interested in furthering opportunities with these two key European markets as part of a Spotlight on the UK and Focus on Ireland.

CAAMA will provide a market intelligence report and trade support for Canadian artists and music companies to do business.  The report will include an in-depth overview of the territories and we anticipate the report will serve as an invaluable resource in future preparations for the 2016 Spotlight and Focus activities.
