2010 Spotlight on India

Furthering our commitment to open new markets and sales opportunities for Canadian arists and music companies, Canadian Music Week 2010 is bringing India to your doorstep.

From March 11-12, CMW delegates will get an insider’s look at the world’s second fastest-growing economy (behind China) through panels and one-on-one meetings. Industry professionals from India and beyond will be at your disposal to discuss potential opportunities, including partnership and licensing options, touring, sponsorship, publishing and mobile music.

As the world’s second most populous country, the fourth largest purchasing power, and a music market worth $370mn CAD, India has proven to be a thriving industry with enormous growth potential. With more than 370mn mobile subscribers and new connections being added at the average rate of 7mn per month, and increasing internet penetration, digital distribution is sure to drive the industry over the next several years. One of India’s greatest strengths is a vast pool of advanced programmers, quickly enabling them to become the software powerhouse of the world.
