The Music Industries Association of Canada (MIAC) has announced the preliminary details for the upcoming 42nd annual MIAC Show, held in conjunction with The PAL Show for the production technologies sector. This year’s event will take place September 8 to 9 at the International Centre in Toronto, and will feature a number of new initiatives to enhance the overall experience and return on investment for visitors and exhibitors alike.
Exhibits will feature the latest in MI products and services from a broad range of suppliers to the Canadian industry. In addition, both days will offer a wide variety of educational seminars as well as networking events, industry-approved training programs, show specials and live demonstrations.
“We are extremely excited about the 2013 MIAC Show,” commented Dale Kroke, Sr. VP & GM, B&J Music Ltd. (a KMC Music company) and Chairman of the Board of Directors, MIAC. “Our recent membership survey generated a lot of great feedback about what both exhibitors and attendees are looking for in a show, and we are working hard to make this our best yet. Working with our new show management partner, Matrix North Events, and with Norris-Whitney Communications handling seminars, marketing and social events, we are going to be focused and in touch with what members want like never before.”
“I always attend the MIAC show and I find it very worthwhile,” added Jeff Long, VP of Sales and Marketing, Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, and a current member of the MIAC Board of Directors. “There are always some informative seminars and seeing the products is great; however, what I really find valuable is the opportunity to interact with others from our industry. There is no better place to feel the pulse of the Canadian music industry than the MIAC show.”
