What is the difference between the Visitor and participant pass?
With a Visitor pass you can attend lectures, symposiums and the Artisjus Award Gala at the end of the day.
With a Participant pass you can attend lectures, symposiums, the Artisjus Award Gala and all those seminars (e.g. workshops, master classes and one-on-one sessions) that you previously registered for on this website.

With a Participant pass you can register for seminars on the website from mid-January.
Registration for the seminars will be made in the order of pass purchase. For more information, visit: REGISTRATION.

In the program schedule , we will clearly indicate which type of pass is necessary for the given program. Please, look for the hashtags #visitorpass and #participantpass in the programs’ description.

What do I get for a Lunch voucher, and why should I buy it in advance?
We will take a lunch break between 12.00-13.30, during which lunch will be served in the Opus Jazz Club in BMC. You can choose from two daily menus, which include a soup and a main course, plus a dessert or a coffee after lunch. By purchasing your Lunch voucher in advance, you can secure your on-site lunch.

Can I buy a pass to the Songwriter Expo for someone else, for example a fellow songwriter?
Sure! The purchasing process is the same, you just need to forward the E-Ticket from the confirmation e-mail to the person you bought it for. In January, the recipient can use the unique identification number to sign in on the Expo’s website (see: Registration) and register for the seminars (if you bought a Participant pass). If you trust us with finding a suitable recipient for your donated pass, please, send your E-Ticket to and we will make sure to send a reply about the new owner of the pass.

I cannot afford a pass, but I really would like to attend the Expo. What should I do?
In this case, please, send an e-mail to with the subject ‘Apply for pass’. We would love to see more and more companies, organizations and songwriters
who, through the purchase of passes, support songwriters who cannot afford to participate in the event on their own. Hopefully, we will be able to provide you a pass from these donations.

Where can I buy a pass personally?
You can buy it personally in the Budapest Music Center.

Address: Budapest Music Center – 1093 Budapest, Mátyás street 8.

Ticket Office opening hours:
Weekdays: 9.00-21.00

Can I apply for a group discount?
For the Songwriter Expo, we do not give group discounts.

What does Artisjus spend its revenue on from the ticket sales?
Artisjus spends the revenue on inviting foreign lecturers, organizing the next Expo in 2019 and further programs for songwriters.
