Expoclásica is a professional event that brings together Spain’s classical music industry for three days and will be attended by important international agencies and promoters. It stems from the need for a regular meeting point for the classical music industry in Spain and from the current absence of sound professional links with the international sector to boost the promotion abroad and internationalisation of our cultural enterprises.
Its aims include: to provide a meeting point from which to promote and give impetus to the classical music industry in Spain; to support the professional development of artists, Spanish groups and young musicians through direct contact with national and international promoters and agents; to revitalise Spain’s classical music sector, creating new professional alliances; and to enhance the work of new creators within the framework of contemporary music.
AC/E is collaborating with the INAEM through its visitor programme by supporting the attendance of foremost international specialists belonging to the sector:
- Lewis Liu, Vice President, Armstrong International Music & Arts Enterprises, Hebei, China.
- Helen Sykes, Executive, International Artist Mangers Association (IAMA)and musical agent, London, UK.
- Anna Wojnowska, IMG Artists Associate Artist Manger, London, UK.
