    China Musikmesse Canceled

    For those who were planning to go to Musikmesse China:



    "The China Music Instrument Association (CMIA), NAMM, INTEX Shanghai, and Messe Frankfurt have announced the cancellation of The China International Music Market (CIMM), show originally scheduled for May 17-20, 2007 in Beijing. The show, which has received widespread support from the industry and attention from the media both in China and all over the world since its launch last August, was postponed pending the clarification of issues regarding the fair license to operate (a mandatory requirement for all fairs in mainland China.)

    The organizers learned in late September 2006 that a number of licenses had been issued to different exhibition organizers for musical products shows in Beijing in May 2007. Pending an investigation into how this situation affects the market as a whole, the organizers of CIMM decided to slow down preparatory and promotional works for the event. Given the uncertainly of the situation, the organizers decided to cancel the show until a resolution is found.

    "It is an extremely regrettable decision, but one we feel we must make for the benefit of the MI industry in China and abroad," said Mr. Wang Gentian, president of the China Music Instrument Association. "We would like to express our sincere appreciation to all MI enterprises, organizations, and professional media who have showed their support for our Beijing show."

    Despite the setback, all four parties stated they are committed to producing a music products fair in Beijing, and will continue to work towards that goal. Developments will be announced in the near future.

    The Nuclear Whales have been trying to arrange an event on the Great Wall of China for the past 10 years (a mass saxophone concert, with 1,000 players). Their first 2 attempts were stymied by a similar problem -- one Chinese governmental agency encouraging them and assisting in planning, and another agency blindsiding them, jumping in to impose a multitude of prerequisites first.

    The third attempt was canceled after 9/11 made international travel too difficult.

    Their website expresses optimism that they will pull it together for 2007...

    I hope they are able to cut through all that red tape and get it going.
    Musikmesse in China would be fun to attend, never been to China.

    Man that is some saxaphone! Kids will see that and want to take band.
