Now in its third year the International Music Summit returns to Ibiza in 2010 bigger than ever from May 26th to May 28th. The event, bringing together leading executives and artists in the electronic music industry, has firmly established itself as an essential event in the calendar. As Juan Vandervoort from !K7 Records, Germany put it last year, “An industry known for producing innovative music finally has an innovative conference.”

Hosted by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong, IMS 2010 will once again deliver an unrivalled agenda of business sessions with, unlike other electronic music summits, no two panels crossing over. In 2009, lively debates saw those attending challenged to embrace new technology and marketing strategies and engage with young people on their terms. A significant 69% of those present agreed that IMS had made them question how their companies work.

The first speakers, panelists and agenda debates will be announced on Mon Jan 18th, with a list of global recording artists and DJs already confirmed.

In previous years IMS has witnessed keynotes from pivotal industry figures such as global electronic pioneer Richie Hawtin, and former head of Island Records and manager to Paul Oakenfold, Marc Marot and seen panels packed with the likes of Bestival promoter, Rob da Bank, Wall of Sound boss Mark Jones, plus senior figures from Nokia, Bacardi, Blackberry, Pioneer and Sol. It was at IMS 2009 that Hawtin told the delegates they were lying when stating that they felt they were in touch with their audience. And 19-year-old Callum Negus Fancey from the under-age Let’s Go Crazy brand spectacularly declared his audience had ‘never heard of Paul Oakenfold’.

After the success of 2009, IMS will again be held at the Ibiza Gran Hotel, the party capital’s luxury five star hotel. This year IMS will take full control of the hotel to maximise use of the space and create an intimate space for delegates to work and socialise in.

Once again the daytime sessions will be followed by special evening showcases at venues within walking distance of the hotel. Delegates will have free entry to all events including the IMS Grand Finale in the Dalt Vila World Heritage Site supported by the Ibiza government, which last year saw Basement Jaxx and Filthy Dukes perform live, with DJs Pete Tong and Rob da Bank. IMS 2010 will have more events per evening all within walking distance of the Gran Hotel.

Said Pete Tong, IMS co-founder: “The IMS is delighted to announce our return to Ibiza in May 2010, and also our return to the perfect surroundings of the Ibiza Gran Hotel, probably the best setting imaginable for an international electronic music conference.

“IMS is committed to helping develop the global scene that I’m so heavily involved in, and I hope industry people and clubbers alike choose to spend their time on the island around this very special gathering of global players and thinkers.”
