Canadian Music Week is Canada’s largest and most influential music and media conference and festival. Combining 4 distinct conferences, award shows, a trade exposition, film festival, international marketplace, comedy festival and Canada’s biggest new music festival, it is a mini global village for artists and industry executives to engage in current issues, gain insights on trends and cutting-edge technologies affecting their marketplace, network and build lasting relationships with tomorrow’s leaders. Canadian Music Week 2014 will feature a Spotlight on Germany as well as a focus on Austria and Switzerland whereby CMW delegates will have the opportunity to connect and network with market specialists and gain access to these vast global markets.
Through seminars, debates, keynotes/celebrity interviews, and mentoring sessions, our conferences attract more than 3,000 delegates.
Our conferences are designed to put you face-to-face with the forward-thinkers who shape the entertainment industries from sound recording, new media, and broadcast to live touring, film, and technology. Confirmed programming to date includes: a celebrity interview with deadmau5; in conversation with super agent Tom Windish [Lorde]; a keynote from SFX Head of Acquisitions Shelly Finkel; an inspiring presentation from AOL Digital Prophet David Shing; the ever-popular live music makeover with Tom Jackson; and the Music Synch and Consumer Brands Summit featuring leading music supervisors – including Glee’s PJ Bloom – looking to place music in upcoming advertisements, films, and TV productions plus much more to be announced.
Our festival spans five nights of performances with more than 1000 showcasing artists from 40 countries at 60+ live music venues. For artists, this is a once-in-a-year opportunity to get in front of over 3,000 industry insiders – from A&R reps and music publishers to booking agents, promoters, and talent buyers – 100,000 music fans, and 600+ media reps from Canada and all over the world.

Here is where international registered delegates are assisted in pre-planning their meetings and showcasing their business.
