Be Present Everywhere: Intros & Connections
10/12/21, 8:30 PM
"BPE," inaugurated at Mondo 2020, is an offering of committed global speakers/experts networking and sharing their businesses and missions with each other and with the global music community. It was created to celebrate, educate and forward ongoing music business through the pandemic, while most of us are working remotely. It's what has kept many music conferences, "conferences," while operating virtually; the interactions, introductions, contacts shared, networking have shown the value and necessity of community in a uniquely isolated time. With many thousands of intros and personal (virtual) meetings between delegates and well over 250 speakers from many countries; speaker and delegate contacts distributed globally; communities connected, networked and shared; we'll never know all the "results" of these sessions. These can be lifetime, life and business changing relationships and they have been useful and enjoyable, with intensity, care and hilarity during a shared global and for most, very personal, crisis. Join the fun and participate.
Global Music Marketplace
10/12/21, 3:00 PM
We will discuss technology, mission, business, solutions, Q/A, trade, culture and innovation; looking from above and from within the global connection points we call music. How, why, where, what and who it all is and the benefits of thinking globally and acting locally. How choices, change and relationships drive our careers, businesses and societies in this connected and fragmented world. You'll hear the personal and business missions of the panelists, learn about their markets, their solutions and activities, all with the intention to inspire and to help you build yours. From Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Cyprus, NYC and India, hear, learn, question, think anew about our places, inter-relationships, purposes and all our ways (and yours) of challenging stagnation through music, education, experience, teamwork, vision and action.

Join our global town hall as Mondo -- in partnership with Canadian Music Week and LyricFind -- introduces you to the global community of music conferences, trade missions, partners, consultants, organizers and creatives. The panel series, hosted by Robert Singerman, debuted on a Mondo zoom over a year ago at the start of the pandemic and has since brought hundreds of international colleagues and thousands of new friends together to speak at virtual conferences from NYC and Toronto to Kenya, Rio & LA, with other virtual forays to & from dozens of cities and countries spanning the globe to Be Present Everywhere (while staying home). Meet these global specialists w/o the flights, hotels, per-diems, carbon, $$ and family costs. Many thousands of new music community connections have already been made and many more will be made here, through active chats, shared contacts, new business introductions, collaborations and experiential education. It's a lot of fun for all, like a great Mondo/CMW/LyricFind conference party. Thanks much to the amazing speakers joining and all participants.
