Warrant of Fitness: Driving International Success

Thursday September 8

‘Warrant of Fitness: Driving International Success’

The NZ Music Industry Commission presents ‘Warrant of Fitness: Driving International Success’ - a series of seminars with NZ music industry experts from home and abroad. Our speakers will be discussing issues about what makes a band internationally ‘roadworthy’ – which skills and attributes are critical to this – and learn techniques that will assist in developing music careers that are export-ready.

These seminars will be of use to anyone involved in planning offshore music activities. With the impending announcement of the NZMIC’s offshore targeted investment scheme, the WOF seminars will be of particular value to those seeking greater understanding of the international music industry overseas and strategies to maximise results.

Subjects to be covered in the WOF seminars include professionalism, differences between international territories, developing and maintaining international contacts, servicing of music to media and industry, and the presentation of artists.

NZ music industry professionals from here and abroad will share their experience on the realities of breaking in the international music scene, with real world knowledge on how to realistically increase your chances of making an impact

The NZMIC sees the seminars as a means to develop a greater appreciation of the international marketplace, as well providing an opportunity for self-assessment before planning to take music offshore.

WOF sessions will be held in Wellington on Saturday October 1st, and in Auckland on October 3rd and 4th. More details on the panel discussions and the full roster of guests will be announced in the coming days.
