Who we are

EMEE is a non-profit association made up of 29 national and regional Music Export offices from 25 countries, with its registered office based in Brussels. We pull together a mix of public and private funding to support European musicians, music companies and music professionals in their export strategies.
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, European and Global level.
Given the nature of our member’s work, EMEE is an ideal source of:

• Expertise regarding the European music sector at a very detailed level
• Expertise regarding the Global music sector at a very detailed level
• Strategic advice on music export matters
• Central communication for their users, European artists and music professionals
• Databases of national and international contacts
• Music business reports and useful research


Within the scope of our network and membership, we resource musicians, educate and supports the managers, labels, publishers, festivals, agents, promoters and all the other professionals in the music ecosystem. We work in partnership with cultural institutions, governmental bodies, music industry trade associations and collection societies.


EMEE’s mission is to strengthen the European Music Sector by encouraging musical diversity, visibility, and supporting mobility in and outside Europe. We facilitate this through the exchange of information and expertise from our members as well as project initiatives between our members and/or other music industry organizations. Our objectives include:

• Initiate and facilitate the exchange of expertise, information, data and best practices among European export offices and the artists and companies they empower through the developing of a dynamic and valuable Network of European Music Export Offices.
