About World Jazz Conference

Each year, the World Jazz Conference unites partners worldwide, both in-person and online, to discuss the matters at hand. The issues our industry is facing are discussed and dissected, new plans are hatched and, often, new partnerships and solutions crafted. 

Past panels have of course discussed covid issues and the subsequent battle for survival, as well as audience participation, the importance of international media relationships, and many, many brainstorm sessions, giving birth to new ideas.  Over the years, we’ve welcomed platforms such as JazzCorner, Downbeat and Jazzfuel, and speakers representing Jazz at Lincoln Center, Huahin Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz and many more. We can’t wait to present our plans for this year’s Conference, so please stay tuned and, if you can, join us in Amersfoort!  

Curious what we’ve been up to, and how we managed to connect with our peers over the last few years? We invite you to explore the 2021 program here, and to watch the 2020 recording, featuring both Laureates and the Conference, here.
