Registration Badge Types and Fees

Unlike other conferences that charge a fee to participate in conference sessions and seminars, all KMC sponsored events and performances are open to the public with most being free of charge.
So KMC Badge registration for participating musicians is our way of helping musicians to get the most out of their time at KMC and in Kansai.
For KMC 2017, participating musicians will be required to register by selecting one of the following badges.
NOTE: Registration is per musician, not per band and all band members must register. However, members can register with different types of badges, if they like.
(Example: For a band of 4, one member gets a Gold badge, and another gets a Silver badge while the other two members get Basic badges)

Video Interview

NOTE: If only one member of a band selects this option, then their band will be in the video, but they will be the only one interviewed.

Networking Event

Before the main conference starts, there will be a networking session with representatives of different music related companies who are looking for talented musicians to help promote products and use their services. They will be giving short presentations about their companies and products followed by a reception for exchanging business cards (read about business card etiquette)
