IBMA’s Gig Fair, a rare meet-and-greet opportunity in the midst of a hectic and fast-paced music industry event, serves as an organized information exchange for emerging artists and event producers. We envision the Gig Fair as a first step in building business relationships. It has become one of the most popular industry events at IBMA World of Bluegrass!
How It Works
- Each talent buyer will have a station at the Gig Fair with a set number of meeting slots to speak with artists in a speed-dating format.
- Each artist may sign up for these short meeting slots with talent buyers. Artists may not sign up for more than one meeting with a single talent buyer.
- All time slots are first come, first served; however, Official Showcase Artists are given a priority access period.
- Each artist is encouraged to bring business cards, one-sheets, and other promotional materials for their act. Artists may bring complete promo kits to give to talent buyers upon request.
