This year, IMS Ibiza will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Ibiza from May 22-24, 2019.
As ever, the three-day summit will feature carefully selected keynotes, workshops and networking sessions for industry professionals. The 2019 edition of IMS Ibiza will also place particular emphasis on individual wellbeing. All attendees will be given the opportunity to take part in daily yoga sessions, and go on a wellness retreat, Remedy State presents ARETÉ.
shesaid.so will be co-operatively curating the summit and will be offering a 50 per cent discount to she said.so members who are first time IMS attendees.
By teaming up with she said.so, IMS hope to diminish negative gender stereotypes, and raise the profile of key women within the industry. IMS hope that this collaborative venture will encourage greater scrutiny of inclusivity within the electronic music industry.
IMS co-founder Ben Turner said: “This is our third year working with Andreea and the shesaid.so organisation, and it really feels natural and unforced to share ideas and ideology with her team […] we can’t hide that IMS was created originally by six white males, but we can change everything else around us to promote the best in the industry from across professions.”
Andreea Magdalina, founder of shesaid.so stated: “We are excited to renew our partnership with IMS this year as a programming co-host. This gives us a greater opportunity to create more visibility for women and other marginalized communities in electronic music and beyond at one of the most forward-thinking conferences in the business”.
