From the Balkans to the Moon: Dream Global, Build Local

Part One: Benefiting from the Regional Ecosystem for International Success

Explore the strategic and economic advantages of touring in Central and Eastern Europe. Our panel, “From the Balkans to the Moon: Dream Global, Build Local,” highlights how the local ecosystem comprising festivals, showcases, export offices, venues, promoters, and conferences supports artists in reaching the global stage. Hear how these regional platforms offer significant cost advantages and a robust foundation for nurturing a loyal fanbase. By tapping into these local events, artists can maximise their resources, allowing for broader and more ambitious touring ventures. This strategic use of local markets ensures a gradual yet firm growth trajectory, preparing you to tackle larger, more competitive international markets with confidence and enhanced financial backing.
