CIMA is excited to announce a business and showcasing mission for a small group of Canadian artists and companies to Glasgow, Scotland. Over the past few months we have been working closely with our partners, the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA), to put together excellent showcase and business opportunities with the purpose of building relationships between the Scottish and Canadian music industries. The mission is timed perfectly for Glasgow as the city gears up for the XX Commonwealth Games later in July.

Mission Dates:  
July 7-10, 2014


  • To encourage business opportunities between the Canadian & Scottish music industries.
  • Mission will focus on connections between the Canadian Mission participants and the Scottish labels, managers, promoters, festivals, radio programmers and live community.
  • To establish ongoing communication between the Canadian and Scottish for future endeavours.


  • A showcase opportunity will be provided for each artist/band participating in the mission – possibility of multiple showcases (this will be dependent on numbers).
  • Two separate venues have been secured in Glasgow – located in different areas of the city.
  • Showcases will be targeted to contacts in Scotland for Canadian artists/bands looking to build relationships, meet with industry and potentially secure gigs/tours etc.
  • Basic Backline is included.

B2B Events:

  • Participate in programmed networking/B2B events in conjunction with showcases in each of the venues – A great opportunity for information sharing on the Scottish/UK Market.
