EDMBiz Returns To Las Vegas


June 3, 2013

Posted by: Gina Joy

Last year, Las Vegas welcomed the first inaugural EDMBiz- EDM Culture’s premier industry event. With the huge success, the conference is back this June 18-20 right before the Electric Daisy Carnival madness. The three-day conference will take place again at The Cosmopolitan and will feature panel discussion and keynote speakers of the industry’s biggest power players.

EDMbiz was launched last year by Insomniac to promote and facilitate thoughtful discussion on the most important topics relevant to dance music culture: best business practices, advertising, new technology platforms, social media, festivals, direct-to-fan relationships, licensing, sponsorships, and sustaining community and credibility with massive growth.

“On the one hand EDMbiz is about creating business opportunities, learning and networking, but on the other hand it’s also about discussing the steps the industry must take to preserve the unique elements of dance music events that make them so special,” wrote Pasquale Rotella, CEO and founder of Insomniac, in a statement. “We place a lot of focus on the fans and their voice will be heard at this year’s conference alongside artists, visionaries, and executives.
