12th World Symposium on Choral Music

WSCM2020 Trade Expo - Secure Your Place to Exhibit

WSCM2020’s Trade Expo will be a key meeting place of the Symposium, attracting over 3,000 choral conductors, singers, composers, academics, managers and general enthusiasts from right across the globe. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase your products and services in a setting specifically aimed at the international choral music market.

The Expo will be open for the eight days of WSCM2020, from Saturday 11 to Saturday 18 July 2020.

Daily opening hours and booth set-up and pack-out times will be confirmed in 2020.

Where will the Expo be located? The Trade Expo will be located in the bustling hub of the Symposium’s main venue, the Aotea Centre – taking up all three Hunua Rooms on Level 1. Popular programmed events will take place around the Expo and the Aotea Centre in general, ensuring constant foot traffic from Symposium delegates.

Who should exhibit? Vendors who market educational and choral tools and any music-related goods or services, sheet music publishers, festival and competition organisers, travel companies, fundraising specialists and international choral bodies interested in exhibiting at WSCM2020.
