Popkomm just sent a press note naming the first exhibitors who committed their participation.
I don’t know why they highlight Universal Music as the most prominent top dog, due to the fact, that they are dependent on the independents… Anyway, Frank Briegmann, President & CEO UNIVERSAL MUSIC Germany says ‘We’re convinced Popkomm as a part of Berlin Music Week is important for the industry and will support the leading role of Berlin as a place to be for national and international creative industries… .’
Even Moore important vor the Business is that the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM) will be visible again in 2010. Jim Mahoney, Vice President A2IM: ‘Independents want to do business, an opportunity Popkomm delivers to our members.’
Amongst others the Music Export Bureaus and Associations from Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, France, Canada, Luxembourg, Italy, Netherlands, Austria, Sweden and Swiss will bring companies from their respective nations to Popkomm.
