The International Music Summit is an Educational, Inspirational and Motivational platform that is dedicated to creating an awareness of and appreciation for electronic music and the artistry related to DJing and all related art forms, through the presentation of summits and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of the genre to art and culture worldwide. IMS was introduced by Pete Tong and was created in 2007 to motivate electronic music producers and promoters to come together and debate, discuss and work toward implementing progressive changes in electronic music. Since, the conference has become widely regarded as “The Premier Platform for Thought and Leadership in Electronic Music” and was also referred as the “TED of music conferences.”
The IMS Asia-Pacific was first held in 2014 at Singapore. The inaugural Asia-Pacific edition found a unique opportunity to gather artists and industry leaders in the Asia-Pacific region to educate the wider world about the opportunity, challenges and current successes of the market. The IMS Asia-Pacific is a one-day summit featuring a series of panels, interviews along with interactive workshops and tutorials as well.
