Following the inroads of their inaugural Trade Mission to South America in 2016, and a successful follow up in 2017, SOUNDS AUSTRALIA will return to South America for a third trade mission with the support of the Australian Government through the Council on Australia Latin America Relations (COALAR) of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
A delegation of music industry professionals and artists will return to the region this November/ December to build on established networks and opportunities that have been forged over the last two missions.
Latin America’s positive growth story is no secret. In 2017 it was the region that saw the largest revenue growth in the world according to the IFPI’s latest Global Music Report. Total recorded music revenues were up by 17.7%, with especially strong showings from Brazil (up 17.9%), Peru (up 21.7%) and Chile (up 14.3%), driven largely by a 48.9% increase in streaming revenue. After exploring the region over the last 5 years and witnessing a rapid expansion in the development of the market, this year’s mission will also extend for the first time to incorporate participation in El Mercado and En Órbita in Lima, Peru.
More information on our upcoming trade mission will be announced soon.
