ILMC 2017


The International Live Music Conference (ILMC) has provided a meeting place for live music professionals worldwide for over 27 years.

In 2017, the invitation-only event takes place from March 8 -10 at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, and expects to welcome over 1,000 decision makers from over 60 countries.

The conference consists of three days of meetings, panels, workshops, networking and events relating to the global concert and festival business.

Networking events range from poker and table football tournaments to the live music industry’s Arthur Awards, which are presented during a Gala Dinner ceremony.

To attend ILMC, delegates must be nominated by two existing members. Registration for ILMC 29 opens in November.

ILMC will be preceded by the ILMC Production Meeting (IPM) and the 9th edition of the Green Events and Innovations Conference (GEI) on March 7. Both will take place at the Royal Garden Hotel.

Over the last decade, IPM has become a platforms for international production professionals to meet, network and discuss issues affecting the industry, with delegates attending from as far afield as Australia, Africa and the Middle East.

Around 250 production managers, sound and lighting engineers, venue personnel, suppliers and promoters’ representatives are expected to attend.

A delegate pass to IPM includes complimentary coffee and tea and a buffet lunch. After the sessions finish there will be a two-hour drinks and nibbles session at the IPM Closing Drinks.

GEI is presented by A Greener Festival and Bucks New University in partnership with ILMC, and welcomes around 150 professionals working, or with an interest in, environmental initiatives at live events.

As the industry’s response to environmental management matures, GEI demonstrates the latest solutions and technologies for practical event management.

The conference mixes practical case studies and presentations from around the world, alongside networking coffee breaks, a complimentary lunch, and closing party.Music Business Worldwide
