Friday March 22

Please do your best to get to Halifax in the morning (or arrive on Thursday night and find MH3 at the Lower Deck, ringing the bell) as we kick off the conference in the afternoon with a welcome reception with one of our conference partners.

Once we finish up our afternoon session. We eat. We toast, and we enjoy. Then we have a treat. Our entire group will attend JUNOS Songwriters' Circle, where you will hear, feel, and experience the heartfelt stories of some of our country's leading artists and their songs. 

Don’t forget you have a JUNOfest wristband to explore the city’s music scene all night at over 15 venues featuring 100+ performers.

Saturday March 23 

Saturday is action-packed. Get ready for sessions all over the city. Your day will blend conference and event activities - from the Honouring Ceremony to the JUNO SoundHub, diving deep into all things JUNOS. Then, we'll switch gears with Headliners and our own Creators Circles.


It’ll feel like you're part tourist, part student, and part fan—an eclectic mix!

Ever been to an East Coast Kitchen Party? Meet us at the Lower Deck for an SPX Global Reception, featuring our take on a group Kitchen Party, starting with refreshments and snacks before we set you free for a night on the town!

Sunday March 24

After the excitement of the previous night, it's back to business. Pun intended because we will leave you plenty of time to start the day at one of Halifax’s beloved coffee shops for fuel for your body and mind. Then, we will invite you to the Pacifico, where we will facilitate Improv(e) Community, Creator Circle, and FamJam sessions. Later, we have a special surprise for you, lunch, and some Headliners! 


Yes, we've allocated time for JUNOS prep. We understand the dilemma of choosing outfits! But make it snappy; we'll discuss at the exclusive Red Carpet Lounge as VIPs.


The JUNO Awards return to Nova Scotia’s capital for the first time since 2006, promising a sizzling show, featuring performances by The Beaches, Charlotte Cardin, Canadian Music Hall of Fame Inductee Maestro Fresh Wes and Host Nelly Furtado

After the Awards, get ready for more fun—we've secured exclusive access to an after-party for you.

Monday March 25

Have your alarm set and plans arranged to head wherever life takes you next—whether across the harbour or over the ocean. But before you depart, bid farewells in the SponsorshipX app, exchange a few more contacts, and post those unforgettable moments (maybe some you don’t even remember capturing)!

It's been an incredible journey, and we can't wait to see where your path leads next!

Theme: The Future of Fandom

Fandom - The Kingdom of Fanatics.

Who doesn’t desire more fanatics, more loyalists, more brand champions, more community animators, or more prosumers? Show me the brand, the movement, the person who doesn't yearn for greater Fandom. It's invaluable and elusive—a magic that's hard to find and even harder to contain once unleashed.

Join us at SponsorshipX Halifax as we delve into the Future of Fandom. Together, we'll uncover strategies to nurture long-term, devoted fans who will prove invaluable to your brand. Whether in entertainment, music, gaming, or hobbies, fandom runs deep. It begins with passion and blossoms through community. Embracing non-traditional thinking and a creative spirit is the key, eagerly waiting for us to harness its power.

Session Types

Session Types

Headliners

These sessions, delivered by changemakers, C-level executives, and collaborators, occur in theatre-style rooms on our two main stages. Expect big thinking and big ideas explored in new and engaging ways.

Creator Circles

Not all of your performers will be singers or musicians, but they will be creators willing to share what they have created and how they do it. Be ready to be informed and inspired.

Improv(e) Community

The community will create the future of fandom, and this is your opportunity to participate in the meaningful discussion that becomes the content of this forum.

Fan Jams

A conference about fandom better include opportunities to engage with fans. So get ready for these in-person, virtual, and hybrid ethnography sessions to hear what fans think in real time and with real people!

Backstage Class

Relax; you don’t have to organize this event so that you can go backstage to the JUNOS and other fan-focused events participating in the forum. From media coverage to sponsor activations, we will take you behind the curtain and under the hood.

Xperiences

SponsorshipX loves to show, not just tell; our Experiences are always surprising and delightful. So get ready to sing, cook, and yell “Sociable” at the right time. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry; we have some friendly Nova Scotians who will show you.
