PopMid, a very different Music Industry tradeshow!

Join us at the 5th edition in Quarteira, Portugal

PopMid is a Music Industry tradeshow with a twist. It has no specific focus or theme and hosts the entire industry spectrum, from physical sales and distribution, content creation, management and licensing, consultancy, to digital services, distribution and promotion.

PopMid was founded in response to the high entrance fees for established music industry trade shows and conferences, the decreasing features and services these offer, the declining attendance over the last couple of years and the diminishing returns these issues result in. We hear more and more from people and companies who are now seriously considering not attending the bigger trade shows…

PopMid is hosted in a modern and spacious hotel in the Algarve region on the southern coast of Portugal (Southern Europe), offering all facilities to meet your business partners from all over the world, showcase your products and meet new clients, all in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

PopMid offers comparable facilities to other tradeshows, but is significantly cheaper. The low entrance fees include your stay in one of the spacious hotel rooms for the duration of your attendance. The trade show floor is literally just steps away from your room.

PopMid takes place on the premises of a modern and spacious 4-star resort in Quarteira, in the wonderful Algarve region on the southern coast of Portugal, half an hour's drive from Faro International Airport.

Accomodation is in the same hotel. In fact, when you register your attendance, a room will be booked automatically for you for the duration of your stay. You can state your preferences on the booking form, such as room requirements, number of rooms for your company, number of people per room, extra days before and after the fair (extending your stay in the hotel for preparation, leisure etc.)

Each year, we have communal opening and closing events at a small additional cost. The opening event usually involves a dinner and the closing event a trip in the Algarve. Both offer plenty of opportunity for networking. These events are optional, but participating is highly appreciated.

A big shout-out to our sponsors!
