when: September 20-23, 2017

What to expect

CIMA is excited to be heading back to Germany for Reeperbahn 2017. We’ll once again be hosting a sixth installment of Canada House and presenting showcases. This is a fantastic opportunity to access the 3rd largest worldwide music market and Reeperbahn attracts thousands of artists and music industry professionals from across the globe. This year Canada will be the focus country, which will mean more showcase spots and exposure this year for the selected Canadians.


Applications are now closed for showcase submissions, but companies can still sign up for our Business Package regardless of whether or not they’re accompanying an artist!


Please note: Reps of artists confirmed to play at Canada House will automatically be included in CIMA’s business events.


When: September 20-23, 2017 (Pre-Event in Berlin September 19)


Where: Hamburg, Germany


Pre-Event/Showcase in Berlin: We will also be having a small pre-Reeperbahn showcase and biz event in Berlin on the 19th.


Companies will be invoiced separately once their business registration is complete.
