This session (NOT A TYPICAL PANEL!), will focus on international collaboration of the music community, exemplified by the co-sponsors, speakers and Screen X Screen, who together work for all; across country and language differences, for creators, fans and committed music executives in all areas to facilitate international trade and development. It will offer introductions and connections for all participants in a fast paced, informative, networking bonanza. It's a result of 5 years of CAB and Mondo, all with LyricFind support, and 4 years of all of us, including many of the speakers, working closely with Indie Week and with CIMA and many others. In a tragic time for too many, we come together to celebrate the individuals and organizations, including all Indie Week delegates, who continue to network, learn, move forward, solve problems, work together, beyond any perceived differences, always for mutual benefit. It will be fun! Chats and direct messages will be flowing. Just afterwards, there will be a networking afterparty of breakout rooms, as I'm sure you've all experienced on Zoom over the past months.
