The International Music Summit will expand into 2009 with the addition of exhibition space for 30 companies only, all approved by the IMS board, and IMS: The Manual, a definitive bible of dance for all registered delegates to take home. The IMS Grand Finale will be a spectacular outdoor event in Dalt Vila in Ibiza Town (a World Heritage Site), featuring the hottest live acts and DJs. There will also be special showcases / workshops from partner Pioneer.
Central to the event is our exclusive five-star accommodation at the Ibiza Gran Hotel, for which we have again secured an incredible discount price. IMS will be set in a luxurious resort to help give all delegates the space to think, debate and network for the future of their companies.
