Gig Fair


Monday, September 28
3:00PM CT – 5:00PM CT
IBMA Virtual Business Conference Event Platform

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 events of the World of Bluegrass week, and we’re taking it online for 2020! Buyers, RSVP below!

How It Works

  • Each talent buyer will have a set of 15 five-minute video-meeting appointment slots (with 3 minutes between) within our online event platform, Swapcard.
  • Artists will sign up to speak with up to six (6) talent buyers (artists and agents may NOT sign up for more than one slot with a particular talent buyer), and buyers are required to accept appointment requests for meetings within the set Gig Fair hours. (Buyers are NOT required to accept meeting requests for times outside Gig Fair hours, but may do so at their sole discretion).

Talent Buyer Sign Up

Artists DO NOT use this form. Artists registered for the IBMA Business Conference will receive an email invitation from the IBMA to sign up for appointments on Friday, September 25.

All Gig Fair attendees must be registered for the
IBMA Business Conference.
