If you attend the conference, you’ll experience:
- Seminars // Conversations on current issues in the music and performing arts industries.
- Business meetings // The essence of Circulart. A space to generate business, internationalize and strengthen industries.
- Showcases // Live performances to discover new sounds, artists and groups.

How To Prep
Before the conference, it’s important you plan ahead. We recommend making a schedule of the events, workshops and performances you want to attend so you can make the most of your time. When it comes to the conference itself, you’ll want to bring all the networking and promotional essentials like your business cards, a notebook, pen, some merch items if you have ’em, demo CDs, or whatever else you think will help you make a lasting impression and perform your best.
Try to attend as many events as you can, and take notes you can look back on later. After the conference, make sure to follow up with all the cool people you connected with via email or socials. Speaking of socials, it won’t hurt to post about your experience and engage with other attendees who’re posting about it too. The more connections you make, the better.
