For Delegates


ILMC 31 - the most magical edition of the conference yet - took place 5-8 March 2019. A massive thanks to all those who attended.

ILMC members are masters at conjuring jaw-dropping, world-changing spectacles out of thin air, but a shroud of mystery surrounds the next edition… Because with a spell of summoning now cast, the greatest sorcerers and their apprentices will arrive in London in March, to the centre of illusion and magic in the live entertainment universe

The hottest topics, most amazing inventions, and latest prophecies about the business are unmasked at the Royal Garden Hotel – the industry’s very own magic circle – where more than 1,000 delegates expand their powers and skills over three days.

Major new apparitions this year include a whole new event on Friday 8 March – Futures Forum – which sees the industry’s future leaders consider the evolution of the business. And the Arthur Awards, the live music industry’s Oscar-equivalents, celebrates its 25th anniversary, with the great and good of the live music world in attendance.

However, with spaces in the hotel strictly limited, and recent editions of ILMC selling out earlier than ever, one thing we can’t do is conjure up more space. Once we’re sold out, even the most slippery ghoul won’t get in… so it’s advisable to register early.

So stick something pointy on your head, and get your broomstick to London for a spell… at the most magical, mystical ILMC that you ever laid eyes on.
