EDMbiz Conference & Expo

If you have any awareness about EDM (Electronic Dance Music) as a whole, then you are aware of that three days of music, dancing, and merriment that is EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival).  In fact, this is a special year as Insomniac is celebrated 20 editions of this yearly festival.

Back in the 1990s, there was this music called "Techno", it was underground in the United States, yet really popular in Europe.  This was of course the years of pop, hip-hop/rap, rock, and the like of that era. This "techno" music was widely excepted in the LBGT clubs or those "underground" warehouses of cities.

Let's fast forward to present day, to the years of EDM as a whole blowing up in the United States as other genres embrace collaborations, and want to join what is now mainstream. The appeal for this type of music has sparked Jack U (Skrillex & Diplo plus Justin Bieber) among others. Some may even claim the Black Eyed Peas has something to do with the explosion of "new" found popularity.



It's time to connect to the EDMBiz Conference & Expo that marks just one of the events during EDC Week leading up to the big event. The line up of speakers connected to the EDM industry is fully loaded. From artist pioneers Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz, Moby, Armin Van Buuren, to industry leaders Pasquale Rotella, Geronimo, Dave Ralph, and many more!

Of course, the list of speakers can be found as panels or keynotes, but an impressive list nonetheless. Housed for three days at Caesar's Palace, the conference will also include exhibitors associated with the industry. Since it's inception in 2011, the conference looks to show the more intricate side by including events such as: Hackathon, & EDMBiz Song Contest.

There are ONLY 19 more days to register, plan travel arrangements, and get ready for a really great learning experience!
