Here’s some quotes from industry people who’ve attended the Conference.
“Miami has its own style, and not so many places can say that,” said Guy Gerber, a producer from Tel Aviv who has become a staple in Ibiza nightlife. “It’s very cinematic. The energy, the palm trees, all the freaks blasting house music down Ocean Drive. But I love the f—king freaks. It’s working.
Guy Gerber, Billboard
Yes, I love it here (WMC – Miami Beach). This is like Ibiza in America. It’s a great combination between a VIP [atmosphere] and forward thinking music. The sound systems are always great. It has a really great balance; plus, this week has a special place in my heart.
Benny Benassi, Magnetic Mag
WMC offers something for everyone in any sphere of electronic dance music. If you attend the Winter Music Conference in 2015, the two pieces of advice I have for you are to print lots of business cards and talk to every single person you encounter. You never know how the person next to you could help you achieve your dream.
