How’s your band’s export potential? – Scored by international delegates survey

BMC 2019 was honored to host a total of 57 Thai and 20 international bands/artists at our music showcase festival!

One of BMC’s goals is to help in the export of music across international borders and enter new markets. We wanted to know how well each showcasing band did in the eyes of our international delegates who are considered specialists of their local markets.

So, we conducted a survey to see which bands were their favorites; which bands may have potential to make it in their markets; and which bands they plan to work with in the near future.

Remark: 25 out of 57 delegates responded to mentioned survey between 13 NOV and 12 DEC 2019.

 

We hope the bands/artists who showcased at BMC 2019 could find information in this article useful for their future growth plannings. Also, we hope that the bands/artists not listed here do not belittle themselves, nor blame the delegates for not recognizing their talents. Lastly, this survey is merely a collection of personal opinions that should not be considered as marketing research analysis.

We – the organizers of BMC swear to continue improving our event and activities to help showcasing bands and artists get closer to reaching their full potential.
