The ILMC, which began in 1989, describes itself as “the first-ever dedicated gathering of leading figures involved in the world’s concert industry, many of whom had only ever spoken on the phone”.
A description adds: “It swiftly grew to become the most respected meeting place for live music professionals in the world.
“The ILMC has provided not just a discussion forum that has led to tangible change and evolution within the industry, but an essential opportunity for colleagues to meet, do business and most of all, have fun!”
