Italy’s IPM Conference Announces Dates
Fast-growing Roman music summit the International Promoters Meeting (IPM) has confirmed they will be presenting their next annual event from Thursday July 11 to Sunday 14, with this year’s theme of ‘Fun Is A Serious Matter’.
IPM chief Andrea Masci chatted to Skrufff last year in the run up to their 2012 event and explained why they based their overall concept on promoters.
“Behind every successful music event there is an exceptional promoter; good promoters are on the cutting edge of the scene, they are basically innovators: to be innovative and successful though you have to be always alert, be able to detect the signals and trends of the future, to take risks and to invent the future, eventually: we dedicate the meeting to them, whoever they are and we hope to meet many of them,” said Andrea.
“IPM was born in Rome 2002 from the ideas of a bunch of promoters/ professionals / friends of the Italian music industry,” he continued. “We were discussing how promoters are key-element around which the entire industry evolves though are often behind the scenes and we thought ‘why not give them a stage to speak out?”
