Hey @Parenting1 ,
Thanks for sharing, no issues are trivial!
So, yah, he seems to be the type of person who engages only if he gets something out of it, hence, probably not all that useful for your daughters career.
I'm thinking support her to go to the event. I think its great that she is thinking "I could still make other connections", she is demonstrating great initiative!
Are there things she could do to prepare (i.e., alternative plans) in the event that he is messing her around and she hasn't got a spot to perform?
What's your biggest worry? Is it around physical safety (i.e., she is alone and may lack the skills to be able to get around) or emotional safety (i.e., the "rejection" could hurt her self-esteem)?

My advice would be to let her go and let her know you're there for her if anything goes wrong.
What is the worst thing that could happen? She gets there and she's stranded. Let her know that if she needs help she can easily ring you. I'm sure she will be able to find a solution.
Our kids will experience heart ache and heart break just as we did when we were that age. It is a normal course in life for us all to walk. Let her make these decisions and support her journey. Our kids will always find a way.
