A BRIEF HISTORY OF MEDIMEX
Medimex is a widespread International Festival & Music Conference, with an important section of activities aimed at professionals and a real festival with multiple appointments for the general public. The various editions have made Medimex the (economic and cultural) point of reference for Italian and international music operators and companies, professionals and artists, an annual appointment for the Italian music market that wants to connect with the international scene, through comparison, learning, networking and promoting your work.
Since 2018, Medimex has become a traveling event within the Puglia Region. The first stop was Taranto, from 7 to 10 June 2018 with a full calendar of activities spread in the most evocative places of the city. In 2019 the event was proposed in a spring edition in Foggia and confirmed in June the partnership with the city of Taranto, reaching a growing participation.
