[Ja Ja Ja-networking event] Gain Access To The Austrian Market



Networking event at the first Ja Ja Ja Club Night in Vienna

The 30th of January JA JA JA VIENNA will host a networking event before the All-Nordic line-up takes the stage at the 700-cap venue WUK in central Vienna.

This networking event is suited for Nordic industry people, who wish to strengthen their network with Austrian festivals like Waves Vienna, get connected with local promoters and agents and gain knowledge about the Austrian media-landscape. Furthermore this networking event will illustrate the link between Austria and its neighbouring markets to the east.

The schedule is as following:

  • 15.30: “Meet & Greet” with the Austrian and Nordic industry people.
  • An introduction to the Austrian market and its role as entrance to the surrounding markets in Eastern Europe – with Hannes Tschürtz from Ink Music and key players from the Austrian market.
  • 17.30: Break and optional dinner.
  • 18.30: Networking reception at WUK with 30+ industry people from Austria and surrounding territories.
  • 19.30: Music starts – Sea Change (N), Elliphant (SE), Noah Kin (FIN), Sekuoia (DK)

Furthermore the JA JA JA team can make recommendations and help set up individual meetings between the Nordic and Austrian companies.
