Bringing PEI’s Music to The World!
In 2008, Music PEI held the initial buyers conference in Charlottetown and invited 15 buyers from across Canada, the US and Japan. It has since grown to include over 50 delegates. Over 350 domestic and international delegates have attended Showcase PEI including many types of music industry professionals from more than a dozen different countries around the globe.
Showcase PEI has created more than $4,000,000 in work for PEI artists through business development opportunities with a focus on export and international opportunities. The results have meant performances at some of the premier festivals, venues and events around the world and across Canada.
Showcase PEI 2022
Music PEI’s signature export program, Showcase PEI, presents the best artists from Prince Edward Island (CA), to industry professionals from around the globe. Last year, Showcase PEI was held in person for Canadian industry delegates and a fully-online edition was created for International industry delegates.
This year, from September 19th – 21st we are thrilled to host mix of domestic and international delegates to Prince Edward Island for an in-person event showing the very best of the Island’s talent.
A full description of the initiative and the submission form can be found on the Showcase PEI Online page.
