“…a real bonus for our local music community” – Murray Cammick, Rip It Up (NZ)

“Going Global was a top-notch experience, from both a professional and personal standpoint. The other delegates were absolutely spectacular, offering not just a substantive look into various facets of the industry, but also the opportunity to forge business relationships and friendships I'll carry throughout the rest of my life. The conference was extremely well-organized, right down to the evening showcases, which were a perfect representation of the wide range of exceptional talent coming out of this beautiful, energetic, and creative country. In fact, I'm now working with two artists who performed during last year's showcases - Mel Parsons and Tom Lark!” – Shawnté Salabert, VP Creative – Sugaroo!
