EMX are calling for European participants to join a physical trade mission to Mexico City (23-29 May 2022).


  • They are looking for 15 European music professionals, working in the electronic music genres, including all sub-genres, from Electronica to Techno, House to Ambient and anything in between.
  • Selected applicants will participate in the Mexican trade mission, a hands-on, week-long physical trade mission to Mexico City from 23-29 May 2022, with an online Mission preparation day announced later.
  • For this project, they are targeting participants involved in artist management, recording, publishing and live music sectors.
  • The trade mission will consist of curated market introduction sessions, matchmaking 1-1 meetings, group brainstorming sessions, networking dinners as well as on-site visits to local music industry companies and major local clubs and venues together with Mexican music professionals working across the same music genres, with plenty of networking opportunities.
  • Selected applicants will get a 1360 EUR travel bursary in order to pay for their international travel from Europe to Mexico, airport transfers and one week accommodation in Mexico City. Participants need to plan to cover further expenses themselves: local travel, meals, drinks etc.

The wider EMX initiative is a 22 month long project, funded by the European Commission. The EMX project’s aim is to test new strategies to develop and promote the export of European Music. Hand in hand with networks representing European music professionals, artists, musicians, authors and composers, the general objective of this work will be to experiment with different approaches to reinforce the international foothold of the EU music sector, and generate new knowledge to European music export through research and innovative pilot actions. The Mexican Trade Mission is one of these pilot actions.
