LOCAL COMPANY TO ATTEND AUSTRALIAN
WORLD MUSIC EXPO – www.awme.com.au
Local creative events company Motone productions have been provided delegates passes to attend AWME – the Australian World Music Expo in Melbourne next week.
Motone will be attending the Expo to again promote the Cook Islands as a destination for music events and further connections with the Australian market for arts events destination travel.
“We are only a small company but have already established excellent profile in both the NZ and now the Australian market through our events OPERA IN PARADISE and our recent event DIVAS IN PARADISE. The offer of free attendance to the event is something we could not pass up” said Tuaine. “We fund all our projects largely ourselves at the moment so with limited support we need to continue trying to build off shore relationships to develop our business and the message of the Cook Islands as a great place for music and arts events. “
AWME is a unique expo that is celebrating its 5thyear in 2012. The event brings together musicians, industry representatives, and festival audiences from across Australia and around the globe for four days of the finest indigenous, roots and world music from the
Australasian region and the world. To add to that AWME hosts one of the most extensive industry conferences where the delegates are afforded unlimited access to all showcases workshops presentations meetings and connections to the world’s leading festival directors, booking agents, label managers, and music media.
“To be serious about the Cooks as an arts event destination you have to be attending these sorts of events, it is fantastic that the Australian organisers of AWME recognise we know what we are doing and understand the importance of professional exchange and advise sharing.” Said Mo of Motone.
“We are excited to be able to be there to support local talent Jaik Berg who will be performing at the ABC Network Special Pacific Break Broadcast and to have a small Cook Islands contingent at an event such as this is a huge plus even if we have to fund it oursleves”.
