Since 2011, Puglia Sounds organizes MEDIMEX, which from the Mediterranean music fair (2011) to the Music Innovation Fair (2013) to the International Festival & Music Conference (2017) has supported the evolution of the music market over the years, becoming a point of reference, in Italy and Europe, for national and international players.

Medimex is music, it is culture, it is art, it is the promotion of talent. Medimex are different languages that dialogue and generate new and surprising inspirations. Medimex is a meeting between people and stories, it is welcome, it is common growth.

Medimex, organized by Puglia Sounds, was born in 2011 as a market fair and musical innovation fair, since 2017 it has established itself as 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 different editions have made the Medimex the point of reference (economic and cultural) for Italian and international music operators and companies, professionals and artists, an annual event for the Italian music market that wants to connect with the international scene, through comparison, study, networking and promotion of their 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.

In 2020, Medimex was the first music conference to fully convert to digital. Medimex Digital closed with almost 100 hours of streaming activity and 350,000 people reached on social networks, recording over 100,000 views, 1,500 users who participated in workshops and webinars online, 130,000 interactions on Facebook, 140,000 on Instagram and 50,000 on Twitter.

In 2021, Medimex brings great music back to Taranto through the events that made it memorable: workshop / laboratory activities, showcases, author meetings, artistic campuses, exhibitions. A unique opportunity for meeting, study, training, discussion and growth. As always, the project will be open to all citizens, becoming an important opportunity for territorial animation.
