COOPERATION ON SELECTED PROJECTS
Promotion at the international conferences
SMOLART attends major international conferences for agents and promoters in Europe (IAMA), China (SPAF) and North America (ISPA). The direct meetings with delegates and promo-materials distribution at these events are important and the most effective tools for the international promotion of artists and performing companies.
You can see our past-conference reviews at the following link
The report on 2012 IAMA International Conference in Budapest
The review of SPAF 2012 Conference in Shanghai
The nearest International Conference (SPAF 2013) will be held in Shanghai in October 2013.
Please see our proposal with regard to this event – HERE.
Arranging your concert is an immediate way to introduce you both to the public and professionals.
Rental fees in Russia and other former USSR republics are much lower than in Europe and can start from 500 USD for quite a big hall. The revenue from the ticket sales will be given to the Artist.
On your behalf we can approach your country Embassy/Consulate, cultural organizations, corporate entities for financial support.
SMOLART can try to arrange a concert partnership agreement with the venues when all the expenses and profits are shared between the venue and the Artist according to the contributions of both sides. SMOLART can also consider becoming a partner (promoter) of your concert.
If you are ready to consider renting a venue for your promo-event then our agency would be happy to provide you with full project-management services including:
- searching for the best suitable venue in selected city (ies) considering the rental costs and available dates;
- arranging a contract with the venue and ticketing agencies;
- designing, producing and distributing of the promotional materials;
- assisting you in all financial settlements in order to minimize taxes;
- providing visa support (if necessary);
- low cost accommodation for artists in Moscow;
- approaching potential sponsors on your behalf.
We can also invite the relevant people in the music business to your concert.

Partnership agreements and partial sponsorship
SMOLART can become a partner of concerts, competitions and other similar events. The agency also can consider participating as a partner in CD/DVD production and distribution.
To make a decision on partnership offer SMOLART needs to receive a business plan with a detailed description of the project, including its budget, target audience, geography and timing considerations.
Profit from partnership projects is distributed among the partners in proportion to their contributions.

SMOLART may also consider providing partial sponsorship for selected events. In order to make a decision on sponsorship we need a complete information about the event, including its full program, target audience, date and venue, number of seats in the venue and their pricing. We also need a detailed information about the artists (their biography and photos) and links to project video presentation or sample video clips from the project.
