September, how did that happen already! That must mean it’s time to switch from another jam packed festival season to the many important music industry get-togethers that take us through to Christmas!


First up is the prestigious Reeperbahn Festival and Conference taking place in historic Hamburg on the 20th September until the 23rd. Following hot on the heels of the action in Hamburg it’s the International Festival Forum on the 26th to the 28th September in Camden, London.


October then sees the LIVE UK Summit in London on the 12th. We are delighted to be taking a stand for this year’s event so if you are attending the event please stop by and say hello, and be sure to pick up your latest edition of Showcase with our compliments!


Attention then moves across the channel to the MaMA event in Paris on the 18th until the 20th October with Womex happening shortly after this on the 25th to the 29th in Katowice, Poland.


We are very proud to partner with Reeperbahn, LIVE UK Summit, MaMA and Womex again this year and the latest Showcase book will be available to delegates who are attending whilst the stocks last.


With so much going on you might be fooled into thinking we would have no time to organise the brand new Showcase 2018 directory! You would be wrong!


The 2018 edition celebrates our 50th golden anniversary, so promises to be the biggest and best one yet! Work has begun with the production of this bumper beast so get in touch with us on +44(0)1892 530 460 if you would like your company featured. Don’t forget; when you feature in our book you automatically get adverts on our web and app versions too as part of the deal. Happy days!
