Classical:NEXT 2022 – the 10th

17-20 May, Hanover (DE)


After two turbulent years, Classical:NEXT could finally celebrate its anniversary edition, No. 10, from 17-20 May 2022 in Hanover. As a gift to itself, the fair allows itself a break.

Two years of corona-related cancellations, the departure of the trade fair's management and the search for a new venue did not leave Classical:NEXT unscathed. The exhibition hall in the Hannover Congress Centre was more manageable than the one we were used to in Rotterdam. Nevertheless, Classical:NEXT celebrated a respectable success on its anniversary with 900 professional delegates from 50 nations.

Those who came visibly and audibly enjoyed the "art music" industry meeting with trade fair, conference and showcase programme. This also included the 15 music managers, composers, concert promoters, distributors and other music professionals who had travelled from Switzerland. They all took advantage of the free SWISS MUSIC stand in bright yellow to be seen and to network. A joint commitment of FONDATION SUISA, Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Performers' Cooperative SIG and SONART - Musikschaffende Schweiz.

The organisers take the 10-year anniversary as an opportunity to thoroughly evaluate the future direction of Classical:NEXT. In order to give themselves the necessary time, no event will be held in 2023. This should be good for the fair, also in view of the turbulence of the last few years. We will keep you up to date on this page.
