2019 TOKYO INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MARKET (TIMM) - CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST


2019 TOKYO INTERNATIONAL MUSIC MARKET (TIMM) - CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

DUE DATE: 5PM MONDAY 7 OCTOBER 2019

 

 

The Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) are now seeking expressions of interest from Victorian independent labels to attend TIMM (Tokyo International Music Market) from 28-30 October 2019 which will be held at Shibuya Mark City Building in Tokyo, Japan.

TIMM is an annual 3 day international music trade event located in the bustling Tokyo pop culture centre and IT hub of Shibuya and is held in conjunction with Tokyo’s TIFF (Tokyo International Film Festival) and TIAF (Tokyo International Anime Festival).

TIMM attracts a wide variety of content holders from various industries as well as influential buyers from not only Asia but all over the world. The number of exhibitors, business meetings and total value of deals has been steadily increasing and in recent years has seen TIMM post record-highs.

With over 6,000 participants in attendance last year at TIMM, this year’s 16th edition will continue to focus on music and the collaboration with the film and anime industries as well as the Shibuya district to bring together the international creative contents community. The conference will consist of three main components: marketplace / business matching events, seminar panels, and live music showcases.

With support from Creative Victoria’s Music Works – Quick Response grant program, a representative from two emerging Victorian labels will be selected to receive fully funded TIMM 2019 conference registration and a $2,500 contribution towards travel costs per representative.

 In addition to this, a representative from two established labels will be selected to receive fully funded TIMM 2019 conference registration and a $1,000 contribution towards travel costs per representative.

Due to limited capacity, we ask all interested parties to show an expression of interest by filling out this survey MONDAY 7 OCTOBER 2019 – it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete.
