Jazz Services will be attending this year’s WOMEX 13 expo, held in Cardiff from the 23rd – 27th October, and will be part of the Horizons UK (England) stand. Horizons is a new partnership that has been developed ahead of WOMEX 13 to bring together the wealth of music traditions and cultures of England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
By becoming a delegate on one of the Horizons UK stands, attendees can get reduced registration fees to WOMEX 13 and access to the stands and their facilities, such as meeting spaces, display areas and so on. The expo serves as an excellent networking event, similar to April's JazzAhead! conference in Germany, and while the primary focus is on World music the organisers are keen to emphasise the fantastic opportunities open to jazz artists and organisations to make connections and create exciting and valuable business opportunities.
Horizons England are also offering a bursary scheme to companies that have not attended WOMEX before, which includes £100 towards travel costs and a WOMEX orientation session. Download the attachment below for more information if this applies to you.
