The representatives at the panel will be:  Marek Hojda the vice-president of the Society of Authors ZAiKS,  Jan Młotkowski the heads the Communication Dept of ZAiKS and  Bogusław Pluta - MLC director of the Polish Recording Industry Association ZPAV.

The subject of the session will be the presentation and discussion the results of the Market Survey on export activity of Polish authors, artists and record labels.

Despite the fact that Poland has 40 million citizens and the music market has been expanding significantly (6,5% up in 2016), Polish music is known abroad mostly for classical music and jazz. In 2017 the Polish organizations: ZAiKS representing authors’ rights and ZPAV, representing music producers’ rights, with support of the Polish Minister of Culture conducted a special survey about current situation of Polish pop music abroad. The biggest Polish bands and music companies with experience in this area took part in the survey.

In the session we will be addressing the following questions: How big is Polish export music market?; Could Polish music be an export product?; What kind of trends can we see on the Polish music market?
