Swiss Music Promoters Association (SMPA)

The Swiss association of concert, show and music festival organisers

 

An Important Branch

Pop and rock concerts, shows and festivals are extremely popular within the Swiss public. They add to our cultural diversity, enrich our leisure time and serve as an attractive showcase for our towns and regions. The live music industry generates considerable value. About 5.5 million visitors enjoy these events of the SMPA members every year. These members alone have combined direct sales volume of CHF 382 million per year.


Trade Association

In 1991, the main organisers of concerts, shows and festivals in Switzerland decided to join forces and create a trade association, the SMPA. The SMPA members account for over 80% of all concert, show and festival tickets sold in Switzerland. Each year, they organise about 1,900 events of all kinds, drawing 500 to 250,000 visitors, employing 3,200 artists in all. The SMPA, which has its own management, vouches for quality and professionalism – for the greater enjoyment of the public.


Safeguarding Common Interests

The SMPA is the official spokesman of Switzerland’s live music branch. In that capacity, it plays an active role in decision-making processes and safeguards its members’ interests vis-à-vis third parties. The SMPA devotes much of its time to public relation activities as well as encouraging the exchange of information and experience between its members. It supports its members in their efforts to meet the increasingly high demands of the public, artists and authorities with respect to the management and staging of concerts, shows and festivals.
