Safety First! 

The health and safety of our attendees, speakers and partners are of the utmost importance to us. We’re working hard to ensure our guests can travel to the Delta and have the most amazing experience at our event, whilst keeping themselves and others safe. We’ll be releasing a set of regulations and guidelines for all attendees to follow at the main convention, as well as at our extra events and tours - which will be adapted to follow all safety protocols - but still happening. 

Topics to be covered

The talks will be a mix of panel discussions and presentations around the use of music as a tool for tourism, including branding a location, developing local and international partnerships, supporting artists, the impact of music documentaries on tourism, as well as best case examples from cities and countries around the world.

Who should attend?

We’ll have 300 attendees travelling from all over the world, and job titles will include: Director of Tourism, Mayor, Musician, Head of Marketing, Festival Director, Professor, Director of Conventions & Marketing, Head of Programming, Creative Director, Product Manager City Tourism, Council Chief Executive, Music Industry CEO and MD, plus many more from the tourism and music industries, government and academia.
