A Strong Global Network
An introduction to IAMIC’s future projects and plans.
Session 9 | Network Meeting | Thursday, 15.5.2014 | 14:00 - 14:45 | Conference Room 2
A networking session for organisations interested in collaborating internationally to develop the market for music. In this session, the International Association of Music Information Centres (IAMIC) will introduce its future ambitions and breadth of membership. The organisation’s aims include facilitating exchanges and new development initiatives between members and with other cultural partners. As a network, IAMIC can help organisations access information, materials and products from beyond their own borders, and support and facilitate the promotion and export of music worldwide. A key part of the network’s activities is also to encourage the exchange of ideas, expertise and skills. IAMIC will use this session to share some of the ways the network operates, and to give other organisations the chance meet like-minded groups interested in international collaboration.
