SPOT and SPOT+ is the Nordic rendezvous for the Danish and international music industries and has been so for many years. SPOT+ is hosted by SPOT in cooperation with Promus and MXD, and with support from ROSA – The Danish Rock Council, setting the stage for a strong, international forum featuring prominent speakers and an up-to date and enterprising conference program: discussions, talks, presentations etc. puts focus on the opportunities, pitfalls and challenges that music and related creative industries are facing.
Besides, SPOT+ provides a dedicated area with rich opportunities to strengthen relations and networks between the attendees: There are separate meeting facilities to host speed meetings or business lunches at the hotel.
The themes for SPOT+ 2018 are branding, digital, equality, sync, and music supervision – all relevant topics in the creative industries.
SPOT presents new Danish and Nordic music and is a promotional platform focusing on artistic, creative and commercial development. SPOT supports newcomers as well as established artists of relevance for Danish and international labels, publishers, the music industry and other parts of the cultural industry and media.
MXD – Music Export Denmark
MXD – Music Export Denmark promotes Danish rock and pop music abroad and facilitates trade between the Danish and international music industries.
Promus is the community and networking center for both the music industry and the musicians in Denmark. Located in Aarhus, our main objective is to focus on the city’s rich tradition for new music talent, but also to support, motivate, and help new businesses get a footing in the music industry of tomorrow. We see ourselves as the link between the established music industry and the new emerging talent – not only in Aarhus, but throughout the country. We are constantly working on tying the two together through networking arrangements, courses and seminars, workshops, mentor programs, business advice and office facilities – and especially through our partnership with SPOT where we produce and coordinate a string of activities at SPOT+ – the conference part of the festival.
