Historical Look at CMW’s International Trade Activities

CAAMA’s international trade activities at CMW has introduced thousands of Canadian export-ready artists, entrepreneurs and SMEs to international music industry leaders, resulting in the development of new trade relationships. We have seen increases in the numbers of Canadian songs being placed in film and television productions and facilitated export market-training sessions presented by these experts. The result is a better-trained industry, with a clearer understanding of the export process, and better able to take advantage of business and exporting opportunities.

Over the past 11 years alone, export & international trade activities have generated from $44.7 M to 52.3 M in potential or actual funding as reported by Canadian participants.

CAAMA’s International Marketplace trade hub will be open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM EDT during CMW.
