All About The Scientific Presentations Section And New Conference Speakers

Updated: Aug 28

The 9th edition of Talkfest - International Music Festivals Forum, which includes the Iberian Festival Awards gala was postponed due to the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and will be held between the 16th and 17th of October, mostly online. Today, we present the Speakers and the Themes of the SCIENTIFIC PRESENTATIONS, and 5 new Speakers for the CONFERENCES - from different areas of the Culture and Festivals sector.

The SCIENTIFIC PRESENTATIONS section consists of several half-hour sessions, with a scientific component, current and diversified, always between the cultural or musical industry. It has a panel of speakers linked to the academic, scientific and associative environment, which will certainly contribute to the debate of issues in vogue in our society.
