CIMA is pleased to announce we will once again be hosting the Canada Stand at jazzahead!, which will take place in Bremen, Germany from April 23-26, 2015.

Over the past 10 years, jazzahead! has grown into one of the most important international jazz trade shows and international B2B networking spaces for the jazz community. For this year, jazzahead!'s featured partner will be France.

What can you look forward to? Here are some of the stats from last year:

  • More than 700 exhibiting companies from 38 countries.
  • More than 2,500 registered delegates from 50 countries (including artists, bookers, labels, agencies, publishers, distributors, production companies, instrument manufacturers, press, institutions, associations, and much more!)
  • More than 100 concerts and showcases on more than 30 stages across the city.
  • More than 12,500 attendees to the concerts and showcases.
  • More than 230 registered media and press representatives.

Check out some of the key outcomes associated with our 2013 mission here. 

"The networking was great. We landed a nice licensing deal (with future touring possibilities) for one of our main artists. It is the place to be for those in the jazz business.”
Jim West, Justin Time Records
