Showcase Scotland Expo is concerned with delivering a strategic approach to providing the maximum public benefit to Scotland by supporting and developing artists from Scotland.
This will offer public benefit culturally, artistically, socially and economically and strengthens the cultural environment of Scotland. Showcase Scotland Expo is supported by Creative Scotland and PRS for Music Foundation
This week it’s Tampere in Finland for Womex. We will be representing Scotland alongside our colleagues from Creative Scotland amongst others at WOMEX – the World Music Expo – the most international music meeting in the world and the biggest conference of the global music scene, featuring a trade fair, talks, films and a showcase festival.
Our aim is to further the live export opportunities for Scottish based artists working in the genres of folk, traditional, Scots, Gaelic, world and acoustic music. We aim to forge relationships with overseas music trade events and to lobby for showcase opportunities for Scottish based artists.
We also produce The Visit an inward bound mission for the overseas music industry, which targets industry from key territories to visit Scotland to see if our best musicians perform and meet the wider Scottish music industry.
