WOMEX 2012 is yet another avenue that IMEXSA is pursuing to leverage the interests of emerging independent musicians and exporters. WOMEX 2012 is the most important trade show globally and by submitting their entries, South African emerging artists and independent music companies ensure that they are standing themselves in good stead for their musical products to be effectively promoted at a festival that has the potential to kick start their careers on an international level.

As in previous years, IMEXSA will continue to ensure that developing exporters and musical professional’s benefit from the international expertise offered by influential industry players such as record labels, publishers and established artists at WOMEX 2012.

IMEXSA is a non-profit organisation whose core aim is to assist emerging and independent South African musicians to maximise on the international market by creating opportunities, promoting professional exchanges and to increase the number of South African exporters.
The organisation also assists up-and-coming exporters and musical professionals to identify trade opportunities at world-renowned events like the PRIMAVERA SOUND (taking place in Spain, Barcelona, from 30 May to 3 June 2012), South by Southwest in Texas, the Reepebahn Festival in Hamburg and MIDEM.

IMEXSA has, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry, conceptualised the Independent Music Exporters Development Programme that is designed to equip small and medium enterprises with crucial skills and knowledge to enhance their export capabilities and to expand their businesses internationally.
