Nashvillians might believe there’s only one music city in the world, but looking at Vienna, Paris, or Hamburg - to name a few - music cities have been around forever. Music cities are the fastest growing and for many the most attractive cities worldwide. Even though not one single music city is like the other, they all share a lot of the same problems and chances.

This session will talk necessities, goals, agenda and benefits of a global music cities network. It will focus on knowledge exchange & policy, city development and city marketing. It brings music cities together, touches music city related fields and aims at leading into a new form of achieving things locally globally together.
