As the pandemic-related closures and reduced operating capacities remain in effect across the globe, we want to support our artists and you with a series of virtual showcases with a live, private Q&A with the artists and agents — free for you to attend as a promoter. This 6-part series of showcases are grouped by theme and will stream live on May 5-7 and May 12-14 2021 at 19:30 - CET. 
Each showcase is limited to a certain number of attendees and we encourage you to register early to ensure your presence. These events will be streamed FREE to you as a music professional (please note the ticketing platform may read "purchase'' or "buy" ticket, but the amount will be $0 and no payment will be necessary).
A post-performance zoom session featuring the AGIMA agents and some of their artists will take place with each event. We encourage you to share your specific questions or comments, or just sit back and enjoy the conversation as it unfolds. We look forward to you joining us for a festive celebration of extraordinary music and conversation!
