International Music Summit (IMS) Asia-Pacific 2017 will be held on September 21-22 in Shanghai. The delegate badges will be on sale starting June 1, 2017, at www.imsasiapascific.cn.
IMS IBIZA 2017, the origin of the IMS series, has just been held on May 24 and officially announced the theme of this year’s IMS Asia-Pacific: “The Digital Storm”.
With the growth of streaming services, online music videos, social media sharing, and much more, the music industry, especially electronic dance music, is rapidly moving towards digital in China and Asia Pacific. This growth has laid a solid foundation for the broader spread of dance music records, but also led to several problems including copyright issues.
IMS Asia-Pacific 2017, a two-day summit consisting of a series of panels, keynote interviews and speeches, interactive workshops and networking opportunities, will focus on relevant topics that relate to the local landscape as well as the global environment with contributions from renowned talent, industry icons and international visionaries and influencers.
Delegates of IMS Asia-Pacific are an international mixture of industry professionals – ranging from DJs, producers, agents, promoters, journalists and brand specialists – students and young industry hopefuls that come from across Asia, Europe, North America and beyond.
Following the daytime itinerary, a series of official IMS nighttime satellite parties will be hosted in Shanghai for delegates to enjoy.
