Dear classical music lovers,
The advent of a new year brings with it a number of exciting developments to Classical:NEXT 2014, taking place in Vienna, 14 – 17 May 2014. Registration for the event is well underway - our new online system means registering for Classical:NEXT is more efficient than ever before and we have lowered our single person rates including the Smart Rate, available until 17 January.
We are delighted to announce that we will be expanding our conference programme this year in order to include representatives from more regions and all branches of the classical tree. And we have just released our new trailer as well as accommodation recommendations for delegates. Lastly, we will be making stops in Detroit, New York, Cannes and Hamburg and we'd love to meet you on the road. Read on for all the details.
NEW REGISTRATION SYSTEM ONLINE, SMART RATE UNTIL 17 JANUARY
We have taken your feedback onboard and improved the online registration system, making it easier to register for the event as well as for the year-round database and online platform, C:N NET, which already features more than 1500 international key players from all areas of the professional classical music world. A C:N NET account is free if you register for Classical:NEXT, take a look here
If you would like to encourage a friend or colleague to come to Classical:NEXT just send her or him our flyer (pdf) which summarizes all important information.
CHANGE IN REGISTRATION PRICES: SECURE THE BEST RATE NOW
With the new registration system, the fees for the fair change slightly. The best rate of 240 euro per person is lower than it was for the first two editions but you'll need to be quick: the deadline for Smart Rate registration is 17 January.
classical:next EXPO: BOOK YOUR STAND EARLY
With lower fees and an expanded conference, we are looking forward to welcoming even more classical music professionals to Classical:NEXT. Correspondingly, the expo area at the Austrian Museum for Applied Arts (MAK) will be augmented. Those looking to book an expo stand at Classical:NEXT should hurry: we have already received numerous requests and it is expected that stands will sell out early as they have with the previous two editions. Stand prices remain the same as before.
Favoured By Presenters, CONFERENCE PROGRAMME EXPANDED
Confirmed as a favoured programme feature especially among presenters, the Classical:NEXT conferences, opened a keynote speech by star baritone Thomas Hampson, will be expanded in 2014.
The enthusiastic reponse to last year's programme has led this year's jury to broaden the offering for 2014, selecting a higher number of sessions from the many good proposals we received, a large number of which will address common challenges relevant to the whole classical music world. Stay tuned for upcoming programme announcements.
WATCH THE 2014 TRAILER
Get into the Classical:NEXT spirit a little early by checking out the just-released trailer. Featuring snippets of showcase performances and delegate interviews, the trailer provides a snapshot of the event and, for those new to Classical:NEXT, an opportunity to find out what it's all about.
CLASSICAL:NEXT 2014 ACCOMMODATION: RECOMMENDATIONS NOW ONLINE
Our partners in Vienna have put together a tailored list of accommodation recommendations for delegates, featuring a selection of options at special rates. The offering caters to all budgets and tastes and highlights accommodation that is within close distance to the MAK.
