​​The Central and Eastern European music scene has a lot of underestimated potential and diversity. The CSEE is becoming an increasingly important market for the music industry, with rapid economic growth and hunger for new talent. With affordable prices for almost everything, a small to medium sized band can easily do 10 - 15 shows in the region with a much better turnover than in Western Europe. We will dive into the possibilities for entering the Hungarian, Serbian and North Macedonian music markets. Get to know these markets in a panel presented by The Hub for the Exchange of Music Innovation (HEMI) and meet the region’s key people followed by a HEMI networking reception with drinks in the conference center lobby.

HEMI is a European initiative aiming to support artists and music professionals from the CSEE region. Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, HEMI’s vision is to trademark the region’s music creativity.
