The first round of conference sessions for the annual International Live Music Conference (ILMC) have been announced.
The event, which takes place between 5 and 8 March, will include panels such as Ticketing: Selling out is losing out, chaired by Tim Chambers of TJ Chambers Consultancy, which will considers whether, in an age of dynamic ticketing, it’s time for artistes and promoters to abandon their focus on selling-out.
Other sessions featuring Lucy Noble, from London’s Royal Albert Hall (cap. 5,200) overseeing The Venue’s Venue panel and marketing agency Frukt’s Dom Hodge leading the Partnerships session.
“Beyond Brexit, which will inevitably feature, the global live music business has a lot to discuss in March,” says ILMC head Greg Parmley.
“This first round of conference sessions sets the tone for the ILMC week, with much more in the pipeline.”
The conference is held at the Royal Garden Hotel in London’s West End and organisers expect more than 1,000 delegates to attend from over 50 countries. Registrations start at £469 ($594), with early-bird rates ending on 18 January.
