Access 2019, Industry 2019


Michelangelo L’Acqua

Michaelangelo was the mastermind behind the wildly successful W Hotels sonic brand identity. Through Michaelangelo’s creative vision, he was able to develop a proprietary entertainment platform that was scaled globally as the brand’s footprint expanded across 4 continents. L’Acqua fabricated the many musical touch points that have allowed W’s passion for music to become the most poignant way in which the brand markets to and inspires its core audience. This vision of music meets lifestyle is now a turnkey offering at all boutique and lifestyle hotel brands across the globe.


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!

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.

Beatport, Co-Founder

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

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.
