Circulart is a productive development initiative for Latin-American artistic and musical manifestations that, leveraging methodological tools and owned technological developments, carry out a Cultural Market, where the objective is to serve as a point of support and launching platform of Latin-American cultural diversity to the world, through a physical and virtual backdrop.
CIRCULART is Latin America’s most prominent professional platform in the music industry, where various representatives of the musical ecosystem come together. Artists, producers, businesspeople, academics, journalists, entrepreneurs, record labels and multiple organizations work within the convergence of culture and business to establish a proactive dialogue on the development of the music industry.
The market annually attracts over 1,500 agents from different sectors of the music industry, counts with the involvement of 20 countries, organizes between 15 and 20 conferences, and sets the stage for 35 shows for national and international artists in emblematic locations within the city. The business platform allows for over 2,000 business meetings between supply and demand of music products and services every year.
The Business Roundtable is managed through a powerful virtual platform where the over 120 artists that take part in the encounter annually, selected and gathered via call for participants, can get to know and make an appointment with Professionals (producers, festival and room directors, programmers, digital aggregators, agents, record labels, among others) in the Business Spaces.
