Planning your next Canadian tour? TourHub makes it easy with the largest venue database in Canada.
What is Tourhub?
Tourhub is an artist-powered tool that can be used to completely book and manage your next tour. It also generates a calendar of who’s touring in cities across Canada. It is powered by the CCMIA (Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations), and funded by MROC (The Musicians’ Rights Organization Canada) and FACTOR (The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings).
By collecting and sharing venue and tour information, Tourhub will revolutionize the way bands in Canada plan their tours.
How does it work?
Bands, artists and managers who are members of Alberta Music or the other Canadian music industry associations will have access to a Canada-wide database of venues PLUS an array of tools to help them plan and manage their tours. The site is designed to allow artists to add new venues to grow the database, and information can be added to existing venues to keep it up to date. Tourhub is designed to go mobile, so once bands are on the road they will have all their tour details in one convenient place!
• A comprehensive list of all the venues across Canada – searchable by genre, capacity or type
• Ability to create multiple profiles and book separate tours – great for agents booking for more than one artist simultaneously
• Ability to add custom notes about your conversations with venue bookers, details about the gig, follow-up, etc
• Upload your show contracts for easy access while on the road
• Create unique guest lists and merchandise sheets for each venue
• Generate a “visual map” of your tour route
• Easily export your tour details to share with band members, road managers, etc. as a PDF or Excel spreadsheet.
• And, once you’re done and make your tour “public”, your shows will appear in the national gig calendar application generated by Tourhub!
