For our 31st annual conference, we were thrilled to be back in Montréal for the first time since 2005. Our attendance once again eclipsed the previous year’s, with 2,910 attendees representing 47 countries (including 1,499 first-timers!).
With 181 Official Showcases, 2,553 Private Showcases, and over 1,000 speed meetings, the conference presented a strong front for the folk music community.
The conference theme, the Spirit of Creativity, was an exploration of the creative process from inspiration to vocation and a collective conversation about innovation, collaboration, and spirituality in art.
