THIS IS EDMBIZ CONFERENCE & EXPO 2016

Born out of darkened warehouses, the electronic dance music experience has grown into a fully immersive spectacle of art, technology, and fashion. The stars have never been brighter, the productions have never been bigger, and the music has never been more popular than it is at this very moment. Before the sun sets for night one of EDC Las Vegas, all that energy and excitement is harnessed into three days and nights of panels, parties, demonstrations, and discussions curated by dance music lovers for dance music lovers at EDMbiz’s new home, Caesars Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

EDMbiz is…

Experience

Our business is an extension of our dynamic culture—innovative, influential, and fueled by community. Like our festivals, the EDMbiz experience is defined by moments, from thought-provoking panels and discussions to chance meetings. We meet, we listen, we talk, and at night, we dance.

Technology

Electronic dance music operates at the cutting edge of technology. The way we create, distribute, perform, and experience our music is constantly in flux, and today’s production breakthrough is tomorrow’s festival highlight. The brightest minds will be in attendance at EDMbiz. Let them help you ignite your creativity.

Aspiration

The entrepreneurial spirit thrives within dance music, as vanguards of the next generation seek to raise the bar in all facets of the business. EDMbiz is a flashpoint for the next sound, the next talent, or the next idea that will help define the culture for future generations. Let our distinguished panelists and your fellow attendees inspire you to greatness.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2016 EDMBIZ CONFERENCE & EXPO

From informative keynote conversations to diverse panels covering the biggest issues facing our community, the conference unites all facets of our business into a memorable event where ideas are exchanged, deals are done, and long-lasting friendships are made.
