WOMEX is the professional meeting with the greatest international projection for the World Music sector.

WOMEX annually brings together more than 2,500 delegates from 80 countries in a market with more than 650 exhibiting companies. In addition to conferences and workshops, approximately 60-70 promotional concerts are also held.


ICEX-Sounds from Spain organizes the collective participation of companies in the market and supports the organization of concerts by Spanish bands as part of its promotional activities.

Why are you interested?

It is a very interesting activity for companies specialized in World Music as the market brings together the main professional agents related to this genre from all over the world.


Since it is held in Europe, it is a perfect activity for companies that are starting out in internationalization, as it involves a lower investment than that required for professional meetings held at a greater distance.


Tips for getting the most out of the activity

It is advisable to plan ahead and set specific objectives to avoid frustration. When interacting with other delegates, it is essential to know the dynamics and spaces for networking.


At this fair, the stand area is very crowded and it is advisable to make the most of it. Sounds from Spain works to ensure that companies have a workspace in which to hold meetings. Other spaces conducive to networking are the showcases and the various cocktail parties that follow one after the other at other stands. You should make the most of the online platform.


Companies are advised to have a constant participation over the years.
