All Day

What does it mean, in concrete terms, to be a professional artist in the Greater Region (FR, DE, BE, LU)? What are the short and long term business opportunities for music professionals? What can you expect in terms of funding and support? How can you build your own network? And how can the Greater Region work as a gateway to access the international and global markets?

During this panel we will discuss international opportunities and possibilities to build a sustainable business for musicians and music professionals based in the Greater Region.

Host: Olivier Toth (General Manager – Rockhal)
Speakers: Eric Bichon (Nouveau Monde, Manager – Chapelier Fou, L’Opération Iceberg), Markus Graf (Executive Chairman – LAG Rock & Pop in Rheinland – Pfalz eV), Patrice Hourbette (Head of Office – Music:LX), JF Jaspers (General Manager – JauneOrange), Joseph Meersseman (Advisor – SMartBE & Manager – BRNS)

In collaboration with Multipistes*
