The group trips serve the purpose of collectively exploring the market with multiple companies/artists/producers and are accompanied by one or more experts. They are designed as tandem trips, meaning that ideally, two individuals per studio / team should travel together with the goal of maximizing marketing and networking opportunities. The aim is to enable individuals with different roles within a company / studio to travel together, allowing them to better address various aspects of the presented work in marketing and networking efforts.
Accordingly, travel grants for two persons can and should be applied for.
Possible tandem constellations are e.g.: Studio CEO and Lead Designer / CEO and BizDev Manager / CEO and Director Marketing.
Time Period: 20 – 24 March 2023, plus arrival and departure days.
