WINHUB is a brand-new international networking project to connect the independent recorded music community around the world. It consists of a digital platform where companies can register and connect with colleagues abroad; online sessions with a regional focus or around a specific topic organized in collaboration with local trade associations; and face-to-face activities in existing conferences and industry events.
The primary objective of this initiative is to foster market access and export capacity within the independent recorded music sector, bridging the gaps between territories, and providing opportunities for companies to establish and maintain international connections. Developed by WIN, it will expand and complement the offering of benefits and resources available to the worldwide network of independent music trade associations.
The first WINHUB activities will begin in December with a networking session as part of the Fluvial conference organized by IMICHILE, which runs from December 1-3. The city of Valdivia offers a unique setting for the WINHUB face-to-face event on December 3. It will connect the members of the WIN board, who will travel to Chile for the first time for an in-person meeting, with the Chilean music industry professionals, WIN’s LatAm Network representatives, and other international delegates.
The first online event will be held in January 2023. WIN associations AIM (UK), AIM Ireland, AIR (Australia) and IMNZ (New Zealand) will present their local independent music markets and offer members the chance to engage in networking sessions with businesses from the other participating countries. All sessions and meetings will take place within the new WINHUB portal, which will also allow participants to browse a directory and filter companies based on common interests.
Truly connecting the independent community around the world is one of our main goals. WINHUB will create new opportunities for independent music companies to build relationships with members of other WIN associations, promoting inter-regional collaboration and business development.Noemí Planas, WIN General Manager
International networking is a top priority for WIN so that independent music companies that are members of our network of trade associations can connect and share insights to propel business development and develop reciprocal promotional opportunities. The first WINHUB International Networking online event will be a great opportunity to connect AIR (Australia) members with other companies in Ireland, New Zealand, and the UK.Maria Amato, AIR CEO and WIN Chair
