We are launching 3 open calls to participate in Sónar+D 2018 that will take place in Barcelona on 13, 14, 15 and 16 June: one focused on companies, Sónar Innovation Challenge; one to showcase original and innovative projects, MarketLab; and finally, one dedicated to startups, the Startup Garden.

Sónar Innovation Challenge

This open call is for companies who want to deploy their technologies in a creative environment, have brand presence in Sónar+D and its channels, and be part of a unique networking space to get in contact with top notch creators from different fields, recruit talent, and discover new opportunities for business and collaboration.



A unique exhibition environment that gathers artists, developers, research centers, universities and schools, brands, companies and people with talent and innovative ideas. An excellent opportunity to test products and prototypes with a real target audience, and showcase your projects to a potential audience of 50.000 people.


Startup Garden

The place where the creative industries startups grow: If you make music instruments, VR and AR devices, hardware or software made to create artistic magic, or push forward creativity and creators, you have a place at the Garden to meet mentors, investors and present your project to the Sónar’s audience. Only 30 startups will be selected.
