  • High-Potential Markets Programme

    The Programme was established to help global music professionals by encouraging business development and fresh talent discovery. It aims to foster bilateral exchanges between national and international music executives across all sectors, working to facilitate the structuring and professionalisation of the high-potential markets.

    This year, the inaugural Latin American Forum follows the success of the Programme’s 2018 events, when the focus was Sub-Saharan Africa. A packed out four-day ‘African Forum’ during Midem and 4 events across Africa in Johannesburg, Lagos, Abidjan and Brazzaville, to meet local artists and industry players, garnered widespread support, paving the way for this year’s event in Rio de Janeiro.
