[APPLY NOW] Nordic Trade Mission to LA



Applications for the Nordic Music Trade Mission to Los Angeles 2022 are open!

The Nordic Music Trade Mission to Los Angeles in 2022 is a networking and capacity building program for Nordic music managers working in popular music including hip hop, rock/metal, indie/pop, as well as songwriter and producer management.

The mission updates participants on insights and networks on the U.S. music and entertainment market in general, legal tips on visa/immigration, taxing and business management, as well as topics specific to the Los Angeles music scene, such as networks within the sync business and how to work within the songwriting game.

The program includes online meetings and a trade mission in Los Angeles. In the preparatory online meetings in February and March the managers will meet with the Nordic group and some of the L.A. networks before the trip. In Los Angeles in 29-31 March, the mission includes company visits, round table conversations among managers, panel conversations and a networking reception. The company visits, round table conversations and meetings will be tailored to the Nordic managers participating the mission.

Please note, if the situation with covid develops so that the live trip cannot be organized in March, new dates will be scheduled to Fall 2022. 

The Nordic Music Trade Mission to Los Angeles has been hosted since 2016. In the past years the program has included company visits and meetings with the likes of Kobalt, AWAL, Netflix, Fox Studios, Warner Music etc. and a heavy focus on sync. This year the focus is for the first time in management and the peer networks.

I was inspired to form my company INNI after the Nordic Trade Mission in 2018 and it’s been a pinnacle part of our company and success.” – Colm O’Herlihy, INNI Music, Iceland.

This was an excellent opportunity and wonderful learning process to really meet some key people of synch world and get very practical guidance on how to do good pitching!” – Kari Pössi (Blue Buddha Management, Finland)
