ABOUT MIDEM (Le Marché International du Disque et de l'Édition Musicale) 
January 28-31, 2012 – Le Palais des Festivals, Cannes 
MIDEM is the world’s largest trade show for the independent music sector where music professionals from across the world meet face to face to do business and build partnerships. With the changes to the music industry and advent of new technologies, MIDEM has emerged as the single largest concentration of music business opportunities for digital companies. It’s the global transaction platform for the music industry where Internet, Mobile & Technology professionals converge to showcase new solutions, source the freshest cross-platform content, share new business models and build relationships at the world’s largest gathering of music industry players.. Last year’s event attracted 6,850 delegates from 70 countries. 

CIMA created the first national stand in the world when they introduced the Canada Stand at MIDEM in 1978. Since then, the Canada Stand at MIDEM has become a landmark destination. Canada remains MIDEM’s longest-standing, most-established and most-recognized national pavilion. Participation with the Canada Stand at MIDEM is a proven gateway for Canadians to initiate relationships and create revenue generating and re-sale opportunities in the global arena.
