Looking for something a little closer to home? IMS is holding an evening of “food, thought and future thinking” with IMS USA: A Symposium on April 12 in Palm Springs, Calif. Forty leaders in electronic music will meet 40 non-music industry influencers for dinner, networking and a little bit of partying, giving members of the electronic dance music community a chance to network intimately with the people who can help change their business.
Timed to coincide with the Coachella music festival, the symposium is a convenient way to connect with the “right” industry professionals in style. Guest DJs will include Pete Tong, Jason Bentley and Rob da Bank.
Attendance to the symposium is by invite only; the lucky few can RSVP to [email protected].
