The Midem Latin American Forum – in association with SEBRAE and its innovative, tech-based project Estrombo designed to support the musical creative economy – will welcome top Latin artists and key industry executives from or working with the market to a one and a half day intensive conference lineup. Part of Midem’s High Potential Markets Programme, the event will focus on how to develop the pan-Latin American music ecosystem in an already buzzing global music hub.
The Forum aims to strengthen existing connections between the professional Latin music communities across the continent, nurturing the growth of a more unified Latin music market. By encouraging international networking, the conference hopes to accelerate the internationalisation of the region’s music and the discovery of fresh talent. As Midem CEO, Alexandre Deniot, explains, “The last few years have been incredible for Latin artists, with talent from the region exploding globally. Having welcomed Daddy Yankee to Midem in 2017 at the very height of the “Despacito” phenomenon, we’re thrilled to support the internationalisation of Latin music further through dynamic Midem initiatives.”
