TALKFEST and IBERIAN FESTIVAL AWARDS 2020: new dates confirmed - online version

The 9th edition of the Talkfest - International Music Festivals Forum, which includes the gala of the Iberian Festival Awards, postponed due to the crisis caused by the pandemic Covid-19 confirms the date of 16 and 17 October being held mostly online, thus anticipating a need already felt for an increasingly global event.

In the course of the current pandemic situation, this year's edition of Talkest will be almost entirely online, seeking to transport the entire experience of the event into this format.

This unique event, at the Iberian level, connects the entire industry directly and indirectly associated with music festivals (eg. promoters, artists, agents, service providers, sponsors, government entities and students) since 2012 and aims to increase networking, business in this format and exposure of the brands that will be activated in this event.

All the delegates, speakers, bands and partners that will participate on the event will have a virtual environment activated and an increased and valued new experience:

  • Easy access to all rooms with simultaneous programme (there will be an adaptation of the programme initially planned for March) and easy access and interaction with all the speakers. There will be a Studio with physical presence of experts specifically for interviews;

  • Networking: easy access to meeting, conversations and contacts with all present;

  • Welcome bag (virtual): promotions, certificate of participation and satisfaction questionnaire. Welcome center with organization promotores will be available online for support and help for any questions you may have;

  • Lounge area: virtual exhibitions and sponsors ledwall - interaction will be promoted;

  • Brand activation area: with Virtual Stands;

  • Gamification where the most active delegates over the 2 days will receive prizes and direct entry to Talkfest’2021

  • Interaction during the Iberian Festival Awards concerts and gala;

  • Gala of the Iberian Festival Awards with new dynamics.

This annual meeting will be held, adapted to the present and proposing to discuss everything that the area of ​​festivals and events has been forced to review.

It has been several months since everything changed and our purpose of discussing the "future" is even more urgent today. We want to bring together the industry in Portugal, Spain and all Portuguese speaking countries with this virtual version of Talkfest.

Over the next few weeks, speakers, artists, themes and entities present in all sections of the event will be announced.
