WOMEX, the World Music Expo, is seeking host city locations for 2021 – 2023. Although WOMEX caters to the worldwide community, it is always held in Europe for organizational reasons. All cities and partners within the European Community (including Switzerland) are invited to consider and suggest a WOMEX host city. The current call is for 2021, 2022 and 2023.
If interested in knowing more about how to make a host city proposal, get in touch with Alex Walter, WOMEX Director, and Sarah Ungan, Head of Production at www.womex.com/about/team. Deadline for submissions is Friday, January 18, 2019.
