IMLC 30 YEARS OF CREATING MUSIC FUSION IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

30 Years Of Magic in the Music Industry 

When it began in 1989, the International Live Music Conference (ILMC) was 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. It swiftly grew to become the most respected meeting place for live music professionals in the world.

Bringing professionals together to air their common goals, aims and issues, while providing unique networking opportunities, ILMC has developed into a year-round organisation that also publishes IQ Magazine and runs other offshoot events such as the ILMC Production Meeting. The ILMC has also fostered the formation of most of the international industry’s current trade associations and it is used by those bodies as a means of regular communication.

Delegrates Discussing The Music Industry

Whilst the ILMC adapts and changes in response to innovations and events affecting the industry, two major factors have always remained constant: firstly, the ILMC is designed, organised and supported by active members of the concert industry not an outside organisation; and secondly, attendance is by invitation only. Only acknowledged professionals may attend and as a result, the conference always sells out in advance. The 1,000 delegates who attend annually hail from over 60 different countries, and include professionals involved in 35 different occupations.

Delegates attend for many reasons, both professional and social. For instance, ILMC is the only place you’ll find top industry professionals crooning into a microphone at the Delegate’s Jam, or losing their shirts at our poker tournament. Meanwhile, conference sessions are well planned and topical, and follow an open forum format – while chairmen and panellists are present, all delegates are encouraged to get involved.

Being supported by practising industry professionals provides those involved access to a vast number of resources – from the input of virtually every leading concert promoter in the world, to the coverage offered by all of the major trade magazines.

In addition, IQ Magazine – the ILMC’s own journal – is now widely regarded as a leading publication within the international live music industry. IQ is published six times a year and complements this website with additional resources, features, breaking industry news and reports.

Over the last quarter century, 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!
