WELCOME TO THE FIRST WILM NEWSLETTER!


Since launching the website in March we have been busy gathering content, filling up the Crewlist and finding new mentors.
Here’s a little bit about what’s been going on….

CREWLIST

It’s only been some weeks but we’ve already got 29 lovely ladies on our Crewlist, and at least one member has had a tour offer already!
The purpose of the Crewlist is to make it easier for Bands, Agencies, Venues etc to find a female crewmember, but you can also use the list to find members to connect with all over Europe. So far we have members from Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway and UK but we would love to see more countries represented on the list!

When we’ve reached a higher number of members, it is our intention to share the Crewlist within our network of venues, booking agencies and production companies.
So what are you waiting for?

MENTORS

We are very proud to announce we now feature six wonderful mentors on our website who are here to offer advice and experience to new members. If you would like to become a mentor please email us at [email protected] (both: men and women welcome!)

OUR EVENTS

We had our very first event on March 6th, a big thank you to all those who attended.
The purpose was to find a standard form for a
PA speaker shootout. We invited 5 loudspeaker distributors to demonstrate the new procedure we had worked out in cooperation with Danish Sound innovation and Eddy Bogh Brixen (Vice chairman of AES’s Technical Committee on Audio Forensics).
The event was a huge success and received a lot of attention, especially from the danish audio industry, and more than 80 Sound engineers attended the event.
We will post a blog about our Loudspeaker Shootout next week.
