Our Presenting Network stands to facilitate collaboration and coordination between presenters, communities, and artists to reduce risk and various barriers within the music scene. Our vision is to provide a strong support system to enable cooperation in music.
Trade Routes hosts regular “affinity” group meetings virtually, in-person, and at various conferences and events year round. During these meetings presenters share their programming wants, needs, best practices, and upcoming confirmed performance dates to enable real cooperation with actionable outcomes to ensure financially successful events for all presenters.
Affinity groups are sub-categories to define shared values and interests of presenters to promote better collaboration.
This affinity group is for presenters who fall under the genres of Alternative and Indie. Please click here if you are interested to participate in these meetings.

The purpose of this network is to enable cooperation between presenters, to reduce financial risk, and ensure successful concerts and events to support and establish stronger touring routes.
This network serves music presenters, venues, theatres, clubs, promoters and festivals interested in presenting music from around the globe.
The Presenting Network exists to develop and support robust and financially successful music touring. The network helps music presenters stage more financially successful music concerts and helps audiences access more diverse and exciting music artists.
he network activities consist of regular meetings, held virtually during COVID-19 and in person when possible, to discuss and review the music tours that are developing.
Right now, there is no cost for presenters to participate.
Presenters, venues, theatres, clubs, and festivals can join the network and participate in meetings, vote, and sponsor artists.
The Presenting Network is different from other networks by including and supporting cooperation between presenters. We only require participants to be an active and established professional music presenter with ongoing activities. The network is open to all types of presenters working with live music events. Participation is not limited to one region, country, time frame, or event style.
The primary goal of this network is to reduce the risk for presenters and ensure successful concerts and events while working to develop and establish stronger borderless touring routes.
