LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – The International Live Music Conference (ILMC) has today (Jan 29) revealed its 2020 conference program.
With over 100 speakers and 40 sessions lined up, the invitation-only conference is slated to take place March 3-6 at the Royal Garden Hotel in London.
Topics on the ILMC agenda this year include the agency, ticketing and festival sectors, greener touring, mental health, and the Insta-generation, among other things. ILMC’s hotly-anticipated Futures Forum will also make its return on Friday, March 6. Last year, the one-day keynote, which welcomes big names from the live music world to share insights gained from a life on the road with delegates, featured pop sensation Dua Lipa and her father Dugi.
Session chairs and workshop hosts include Alex Bruford and Stacey Pragnell (ATC Live), Sophi Lobl (C3 Presents), Paul Latham (consultant), Jackie Wilgar (Live Nation), Ruaha Kyyro (Fullsteam), Raye Cosbert (Metropolis), Jo Young (Ticketmaster), Karma Bertelsman and Lucy Levitt (Kilimanjaro Live), Kelly Bennaton (DHP), Prince Laryea (Shift Coaching), Lou Champion, Steve Machin (FanDragon), Chris Carey (TicketSwap), Michael Hosking (Midas Promotions), Claire O’Neill (A Greener Festival) and IQ’s Gordon Masson and Jon Chapple.
Conference head, Greg Parmley, said: “Building the ILMC agenda this year has been the most difficult in our history. As the contemporary live music business gets broader and touches more fans and sectors than ever, reflecting that growth in just three days at ILMC gets harder. We owe a huge debt of thanks to the 150 professionals around the world who’ve contributed to the planning this year as part of our agenda committee.”
Additional sessions and details on guest speakers will be announced soon.
