About


WMC – Music. Technology. Education. Culture.

35 YEARS STRONG

Winter Music Conference [WMC] is the longest-running conference of its kind. The annual gathering that helped give birth to an entire industry from its humble beginnings back in 1985 is now stronger than ever with a renewed sense of purpose and direction under the umbrella of Miami Music Week.

After a delayed 35th Anniversary due to Covid 19, the Winter Music Conference returns this year as a virtual two day summit featuring insightful programming for industry professionals that focuses on rebuilding, rethinking and innovation. Teaming up with The Magnetic Agency Group, VRJAM and other partners, WMC 2021 will bring together keynotes, panels, networking sessions and a fantastic group of exhibitors that will inspire, educate and reconnect.

WMC has always been about the future, so as we roll out WMC Virtual, we plan to evolve into a fully hybrid conference for future editions and offer regular virtual summits throughout the year.

Testimonials

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.

The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!
