That was magic!

5-8 MARCH 2019 SAW MORE THAN 1, 100 MASTERS OF SPECTACLE AND ILLUSION ATTENDED THE LIVE INDUSTRY’S MOST MAGICAL ANNUAL GATHERING.

The great, the good and the pointy-hatted arrived in droves for a spell - to network, to unravel the mysteries of the live music industry, to quaff many a magical potion, and to demonstrate why it's better for everyone that they're are on the business side of the industry during the Never Mind the Warlocks Karaoke.

If you want to read in-depth reviews of all the panels that took place at ILMC including the ILMC Production Meeting, the Green Events & Innovations Conference and the very first Futures Forum; if you want to find out who returned home with an Arthur Award weighing down their broomstick; or if you just want to look at the pretty pictures… it’s all here.

See you in 2020!

 Feedback FROM DELEGATES

You really have taken it to the next level, the programing was so outstanding this year, the vibe around the conference was so positive all week long, it really was by far my best trip over…You have truly created something so special.
~Dan Steinberg – Emporium Presents

Congratulations to your team on the organisation of the ILMC, which as usual has been absolutely first class.
~Andrew Zweck – Sensible Music

Well! What can I say! This was the best year yet. And I'm not biased because I won the poker tourney - (at 1am on International Women's Day!) it was the most fun and productive ILMC ever. Never in the history of the music industry, has so much been achieved by the severely hungover.
~Tina Kelly – LiveStyled

I liked it a lot more than before.
~Barrie Marshall – Marshall Arts

ILMC 31 was a great event throughout. The Futures Forum injected a whole new energy. The whole sector continues to evolve so it’s great to see ILMC evolve as well.
~Nigel Dewar Gibb – Lewis Silkin LLP

This was the best edition of ILMC I've been to.
~Adam Brooks – Ents24

This was the most informative conference I have seen in a long time. The discussions were very positive and inspiring.
~Lefa Tsiane – Gearhouse SA

This was my first ILMC and it was thrilling! I met so many people within this short time. Simply great! I had a really good time in the Royal Garden next to the lovely Hyde Park with jogging rounds every morning. And the staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful. I am really looking forward to coming back next year.
~Marc Oßwald – Vaddi Concerts

ILMC 31 was a great and inspiring experience. Our team at 7to.rocks is grateful for the opportunity of being part of the ILMC.
~Alex Nabokov – 7to.rocks

ILMC 2019 was a very good edition! Thanks for a perfect organisation.
~Beatrice Stirnimann – Baloise Sessions

A huge thanks to the whole team for another great ILMC, always an excellent mixture of business and pleasure (and some self-inflicted early morning pain!). Productive, interesting conference sessions and, of course, the Daltrey and Dua interviews added a special sparkle this year. Well done team ILMC!
~Martin Goebbels – Miller Insurance Services

ILMC panels had some great participants and the conference is more than ever moving (if this is still possible at all) UP!
~Uwe Frommhold – Anschutz Entertainment Group
