IKF 2023 – Review

22–25 January 2023, Freiburg i-Bri. (DE)

IKF 2023 – The thirst post-Corona edition

The chosen title may still seem a bit premature, but at IKF 2023 Corona was indeed hardly an issue. What a relief for the participants of the 35th Freiburg trade fair for stage productions after two cancellations due to the pandemic.

Although, as expected, the IKF had to accept a drop in visitors compared to 2020, numerous agencies and artists did not miss the opportunity to present themselves to the international professional audience at the exhibition stands and on stage from 23 to 25 January 2023.

FONDATION SUISA and Pro Helvetia were also present with the SWISS MUSIC stand, together with and for the Swiss music business. The stand was an attractive and cost-effective platform at the IKF to artists and agencies, in particular the five Swiss live showcases in the field of music: 

On Tuesday afternoon, the fair public also gathered around the two neighbouring stands SWISS MUSIC and Schweizer Künstlerbörse t. Theaterschaffen Schweiz for a 90-minute Swiss stand aperitif. A unique opportunity to network – and not least to discover Swiss wine.

The next IKF will take place from 20 to 22 January 2025 in Fribourg.

L’IKF 2023 in figures:

  • 350 exhibitors from 20 countries
