international guests of the sector.
Soundmit is also a chance for visitors to meet sector companies and apply for job
opportunities. Engineers, software developers and graphic designers are currently among the
most requested profiles in the music sector and the presence of universities and performers
such as Arduino exponentially increases the possibilities of developments in this direction.
Soundmit has also the support of 17 international media industry partners who will cover the
event with articles, interviews and reports.

Soundmit is among the founders, together with the SynthFest France, of E.M.E.A. – Electronic
Music Events Associations (www.emea.club), a European consortium created to support
events similar to the Soundmit, to provide a quality brand to participating companies and the
public, as well as to coordinate similar events and thus avoid overlapping and guarantee always
the highest quality standards.
Soundmit 2019 returns to the centre of the city of Turin in a breath-taking historic location:
over 1000 square meters of exhibition space within the ARSENALE DELLA PACE, a
building from the 1700s that housed the military industry of the First World War, now a point of
multicultural meeting and Italian headquarters of Sermig – Youth Missionary Service.
The strength of the Soundmit is the rich programme that will characterize the two days.

ITALIAN TRADE AGENCY
This edition mark the beginning of a interesting partnership with the Italian Trade Agency.
www.ice.it – ITA – Italian Trade Agency is the Governmental agency that supports the business
development of our companies abroad and promotes the attraction of foreign investment in Italy.
Thanks to this partnership, we will host international buyers, international journalists and the
influencer BoBeats from Sweden.
This year, the partnership with ARDUINO is strengthened – it will be present with an exhibition
space and some related initiatives.
With this collaboration, Soundmit wants to give greater visibility to all the Makers of the music
sector. New musical instruments and new interfaces are at the centre of the partnership with the
Turin company that invented the world of Makers.
An opportunity for the public to discover new solutions and new musical instruments and an
opportunity for the Makers to confront themselves with musicians, receive feedback and
suggestions and meet the big companies in the sector.
The Makers and companies that use Arduino technology in their projects will have the
opportunity to use a discount to participate in Soundmit.
FEED YOUR PEDALS WITH SYNTHS – EFFECTS DATABASE!!
Last year we had two guitar effects producers at the fair, Eventide and Zirante. The success
was so unexpected and surprising that we decided to include effects producers in a systematic
way to meet the demands of those who use them with synthesizers.
To do this we have created an important partnership with the “Effects Database” community, the
largest online catalogue of producers and effects with a community of over 410K followers! If
you are a pedal manufacturer, it’s time to conquer the world of synthesizers! Come to Soundmit
with your effects! http://www.effectsdatabase.com/
This year Soundmit has collaborated with Hackability, the Italian association to bring together
the world of Makers, designers and digital artisans with the needs and inventiveness of
people with disabilities or special needs
Soundmit and Hackability announce the first Soundmit – Hackability Music Prize to
promote and circulate technological, design and service solutions that facilitate, in all its
forms, the musical practice for people with disabilities and special needs.
The purpose of the award is to identify projects and technologies that can enable people
with disabilities to the world of music.
The call is international, open to all and participation is free. http://www.hackability.it/
