Along­side the Meet the Author gath­er­ings with the prot­ag­on­ists of the music scene, Med­imex 2019 hos­ted a num­ber of events addressed to pro­fes­sion­als, artists and music busi­nesses on the pro­spects of the nation­al and inter­na­tion­al mar­ket and the chal­lenges ahead.

Hence, also in this new edi­tion, Med­imex was once again an oppor­tun­ity to meet fest­iv­al dir­ect­ors, agen­cies, record labels, Itali­an and inter­na­tion­al stake­hold­ers and par­ti­cip­ate in spe­cif­ic events aimed at music pro­fes­sion­als. The pro­gram included pan­els and work­shops, with influ­en­tial experts who hos­ted inter­est­ing debates on some of the cent­ral themes of the music busi­ness fab­ric. And then, again, Puglia Sounds Musi­cari­um, school of music crafts (with a new upgraded ver­sion tar­geted only to pro­fes­sion­als) and the Song­writ­ing Camp, dur­ing which young musi­cians worked side by side with renowned authors and pro­du­cers.
