In addition to the conventional music trade fairs like Womex, jazzahead! and the likes where the Austrian music industry is represented by national stands, specialized events for the European and international live music industry were established in recent years. In the context of an internationalisation campaign these platforms are to be used more intensely for export cooperations and international exchange. The main aim is a continuous presence of local artists and companies at these events, festivals and conferences on the one hand and the organization of special events to emphasize individual priorities in key markets on the other hand. 


  • Representation of the Austrian music industry at international showcase festivals and industry events
  • Facilitating the participation of local artists, labels, agencies and other companies 
  • Support of Austrian artists, record labels, agencies and artist management companies to showcase at professional music industry conferences, trade shows and other events
  • Organisation of showcases and country nights; handling of concerts and showcases of Austrian artists 
  • Funding of travel expenses, advertising costs, etc. up to a maximum of 1.000, - € (non-repayable) 
  • Development of promotion tools and international partnerships to increase the presence of local artists and releases (press releases, public and media relations, media monitoring) 
  • Development of a sustainable national and international network of music industry professionals 
  • Development of special events through the gradual involvement of the Austrian cultural forums and related areas of the creative industries (film, design, fashion, games, interactive)
