Canada House Returns to The Great Escape from May 19-21, 2016!
CIMA will be returning to The Great Escape in just a few short weeks for 3 days of Canada House at The Green Door Store!
This year marks CIMA's 5th time participating at The Great Escape, the UK's premier annual music event (and most important UK event for Canadians). The Canadian delegation in 2015 included 24 companies, associations and artist entrepreneurs, with 15 Canadian acts showcasing at Canada House.

This year’s Canadian Blast showcases will take place at The Green Door Store (Trafalgar Arches, Lower Goods Yard, Brighton Train Station) from Thursday May 19 until Saturday May 21.
The showcases will kick off with a Pre-TGE event at The Water Rat (328 Gray's Inn Rd WC1X 8BZ) in London on May 17 from 7:00PM-10:45PM, following a networking reception and will feature Eastern Canadian acts from Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
