ABOUT

WHO WE ARE

EMEE is a non-profit association made up of 23 national and regional Music Export offices from all over Europe, with its registered office based in Brussels.

Help provided by music export offices who are part of EMEE includes funding, capacity building and training, business to business advice, international networking, business support programs and much more. Through their work, our members encourage cross border circulation, cultural diversity and economic development for music professionals and the artists they assist, while consulting, initiating and/or implementing music export policies at National and European level.
