Expanding space for 32nd ILMC

14 February 2020

MORE OF the conference programme has been revealed for the invitation-only International Live Music Conference (ILMC), taking place at the Royal Garden Hotel in London between 3 and 6 March.

This 32nd edition of the event will feature over 100 speakers and 40 sessions including 2020 Vision: The 10-year view (exploring how consumer behaviour around live will change over the next decade), Agency Business (updates to artiste development strategies) and Live through a lens (looking at the impact of social media on the format of shows).

Among industry figures who will be chairing sessions and hosting workshops are Alex Bruford and Stacey Pragnell from ATC Live, Jackie Wilgar from Live Nation Entertainmnt and Jo Young from Ticketmaster.

“Most of the key players from the industry around the world all come to London for three days to do great business, catch up, network and have a good time,” conference head Greg Parmley tells LIVE UK.

“For this 32nd edition, we’ve expanded into a second hotel site, allowing us to deliver the biggest agenda yet with more panels and more networking space. We’ve got some great companies and delegates lined-up, so this year will be a strong edition.”

The agenda will also see the return of Futures Forum, a one-day discussion and networking event created by young professionals for the next generation of live music industry leaders.

More than 1,200 delegates are expected to attend from over 50 countries.

The conference was launched in 1989 by agent Martin Hopewell, then head of Primary Talent International, until acquired by Parmley several years ago.
