CIMA will once again lead the delegation of Canadian companies to MIDEM, the world’s largest music industry trade fair taking place in Cannes, France from February 1-4, 2014.

Over the last three years, CIMA delegates at MIDEM reported 850 confirmed and potential business deals worth almost $20 million, along with nearly 2200 meetings with publishers, distributors, licensing reps, touring agencies and others, in addition to making 2300 new business contacts.

To increase accessibility to this key marketplace, CIMA has slashed the cost of participation with the Canada Stand by more than 35% for your first rep and by 52% for each additional company representative.

This allows companies to register two delegates for what was previously the price of one!

Feedback from previous year’s delegates shows why MIDEM remains the most important gateway to international markets:

“(The Canada Stand) is a powerful brand and networking system, having the location and team for support and guidance was absolutely essential.”

“We showcased for the first time at MIDEM and the response was so successful that a major retailer has shown interest in stocking product. Numerous media were present and overall exposure was much more than we expected.”

“I met an exceptional number of highly qualified leads and was able to do business with many immediately and build relationships with many more.”

“A national stand is important. Not only does it give everyone a place to meet, but being identified with the country of some of the most prolific music industry professionals can only be a good thing.”
