Conference

The conference programme has established itself as one of the key features of Classical:NEXT, offering a wide variety of useful and inspiring themes for all sectors.

Set up to keep delegates up-to-date with new developments and provide the right know-how to cope with current issues, the conference is a place to find new partners.

It is comprised of Conference Sessions, Network Meetings, Mentoring Sessions and off C:N Presentations. Also returning for a fourth time as part of the programme are our Project Pitches.

What is a Conference?

At the heart of the Classical:NEXT Conference are the jury-selected conference sessions featuring interactive formats such as mini-workshops, group discussions and debates as well as presentations and panels.

Network Meetings provide a place to form new alliances or deepen existing relationships: this semi-formal format provides a platform for established or emerging international networks to get together, brainstorm, develop ideas and connect with potential memebers or partners.
