For the 12th edition of the summit, global business leaders and artists will assemble in Ibiza for in-depth discussions on new technology, advances in business thinking, gender parity, diversity and inclusion, social conscience and mental awareness to bring about positive change and progress.
Our picks from the program so far are definitely the Clubland In Crises debate which will unite twenty leading voices from across the electronic music industry in a two-hour discussion. Artists, venues, media, promoters and managers will tackle the most pressing issues facing clubland, including venue closures and the effect of local politics
Also in a timely announcement, after the awful news about Prodigy icon Keith Flint, 'Avicii Keith Flint... One Year On, What Have We Done To Protect Our Mental Health' will be the most important event over the three-day conference. The discussion will analyse the devastating effects of Mental Health issues, bringing together a number of organisations who are trying to address this growing problem.
