This February, CIMA will be conducting our incoming mission targeting the Eastern European market. CIMA will be flying in 8 delegates from various sectors of the music industry in Eastern Europe (Estonia, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Poland etc). The purpose of the mission is for the export-ready Canadian music industry to learn more about the Eastern European market.

The mission will run from February 5-10, 2019 in both Toronto and Ottawa and will be in partnership with MEGAPHONO’s international delegates programming. Events will begin with a welcome reception on the evening of the 5th in Toronto followed by a full morning of business events on the 6th with delegates then traveling to Ottawa for four days of business and showcasing events at MEGAPHONO.
