International Live Music Conference launches 2019 edition



Futures Forum event for young professionals significantly expands conference schedule

1,800+ live music professionals set to attend ILMC events across the week


Organisers of the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) have today launched the 2019 edition which boasts its largest ever programme, and a new event dedicated to the next generation of industry leaders.

With the launch of Futures Forum, the final day of ILMC is upscaled to invite 300 young professionals to discuss the evolution of the live business. “Futures Forum will bring the individuals that currently define the business together with those who will drive its development,” says ILMC head Greg Parmley. “It’s an extra day of ILMC, and a chance to embrace new formats, and encourage fresh voices and different thinking.”

Following a vote by ILMC’s 5,000 members earlier this year, the conference’s mid week format becomes permanent, with the 2019 edition running from 5-8 March. Both the ILMC Production Meeting (IPM) and Green Events & Innovations Conference take place on 5 March, while Futures Forum bookends the conference week on Friday 8 March.

“With over 1,800 live music professionals attending an ILMC event during the week, it’s the focal point for the international business,” says Parmley. “We can’t wait to start announcing speakers and sessions shortly.”

One of the highlights of ILMC, the Gala Dinner & Arthur Awards celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2019. To mark the quarter century, the industry’s Oscar-equivalents are moving to the Sheraton Grand Park Lane – one of London’s most spectacular Art Deco spaces – which will host over 350 of the industry’s best and brightest.

Companies supporting ILMC’s 2019 edition include Live Nation, Ticketmaster, CTS Eventim, DEAG, Showsec, MOJO Rental, WME Entertainment, eps, Commerzbank Arena, Eyellusion, Feld Entertainment and Buma Cultuur.

The new website, which invites the world’s greatest sorcerers and their apprentices to travel to London, to the centre of illusion and magic in the live entertainment universe, is here.
