Creative Europe

AUDIOGEST is a non-profit association, publicly owned and legally incorporated and registered as a Collective Rights Management Entity for Phonographic Producers with IGAC.

AUDIOGEST represents in Portugal not only the phonograms (albums or songs) recorded and edited originally by its members and beneficiaries, but also the phonograms (“foreign” repertoire) edited by them in Portugal, under the license of their original producers.



The European Talent Exchange Programme (ETEP) was introduced in 2003 to make the ‘exchange’ of European artists across Europe possible on a greater scale than ever before.

An initiative of ESNS, ETEP facilitates the bookings of European acts on festivals outside their home countries and generates extensive media exposure for these artists in cooperation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), export offices and local media. This way, ETEP aims to give a boost to the international careers of European artists.



The Innovation Network of European Showcases, or INES, is a European cooperation project initiated by eight international showcase festivals – including Westway LAB – and gigmit, the European digital platform for artist booking. Currently, INES has expanded to eighteen showcase festivals.
