The EDMbiz Music Conference Returns To EDC Week!

Posted: February 26th, 2013 3:58PM

Following a monumentally successful debut, we are proud to announce the return of EDMbiz, a ground-breaking and culturally essential conference for the electronic dance music industry, taking place during EDC Week in Las Vegas, June 18-20, 2013, at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

The conference focuses on moving EDM forward on a credible and thriving path while uniting industry leaders and pioneers with peripherally connected businesses and ambitious entrants.  EDMbiz will facilitate relevant discussions focused on the most pertinent topics and issues specific to the scene including:  best practices, branding, direct-to-fan relationships, festivals, licensing, social media, sponsorships, technology platforms, and sustaining community, humanity and credibility during a period of massive growth.

Panelists and keynote speakers are assembled to offer a diverse array of perspective toward the conversations and current debates facing the industry. Last year’s conference presented riveting keynotes by Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, William Morris Endeavor Head of Music Marc Geiger, and Atlantic Records Chairman and CEO Craig Kallman. The artist panel featuring Kaskade, Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello, Jono Grant and Tony McGuinness from Above and Beyond, Richie Hawtin, and Rebecca and Fiona, allowed for participants to hear directly from the most influential artists in the scene.

With separate meeting space for attendees, the event also laid the groundwork for several future business opportunities and was the location of the announcement of Robert F.X. Sillerman’s first of many acquisitions in the industry.

Registration will open soon at  Participants will be given access to a networking pre-party on Tuesday, June 18, followed by two days of conference programming as well as complimentary entrance to parties at Las Vegas’ finest nightclub venues each evening.  The conference is anticipated to sell out so early registration is greatly encouraged. The first round of speakers and special events will be announced in the near future.
