Classical:NEXT 2016: Australian delegation complimentary registration offer
We are thrilled to announce that the Australia Council for the Arts is offering to cover the costs of registration for Australian artists, organisations and companies attending Classical:NEXT 2016 in Rotterdam on 25-28 May 2016.
National export initiative Sounds Australia, in partnership with the Australian Music Centre, will be coordinating an Australian presence at Classical:NEXT by investing, for the first time, in an Australian stand at the trade show. Australian delegates registering as part of the Sounds Australia stand have access to a special discount code. If you are planning on registering for Classical:NEXT 2016, please email Glenn Dickie for the code and a registration link. The code will automatically discount the registration fee and will also allow Sounds Australia to have a solid understanding of the whole delegation, ensuring all participants will receive related communications in the lead-up to the event.
Delegates will receive reimbursement for the full amount paid (including VAT) upon receipt of an invoice and a copy of their paid registration. This special rate has been negotiated by SOUNDS AUSTRALIA and the AMC. There is a limited amount of funding available, so payments will be made on a first-in basis. Those that have already registered are welcome to apply for a reimbursement for this expense (see below for instructions). Please note that delegates are responsible for all other costs associated with attendance, such as flights, accommodation, ground transport, meals, etc.
Classical:NEXT brings together the diverse scenes of classical music and provides a forum for meetings, networking and exchange of ideas. Since the first edition in 2012, about 3000 classical music professionals from more than 1000 companies, from over 40 countries have met at Classical:NEXT. The structure of Classical:NEXT consists of four sections: showcases, conference, expo and film screenings. The conference section offers presentations, seminars, discussions, one-to-one and roundtable mentoring, among others. The expo exhibits the work of labels, publishers, agents, festivals, associations and others, and serves as a meeting point for all delegates. Showcases are where artists and productions can be presented in a series of short concerts or video screenings.
