For those of you that miss the buzz of a music conference, BMC has just announced plans to run their event in October. You can buy tickets here.
The UK government has advised that from the 1st of October 2020 trade shows, exhibitions and conferences will be allowed to take place and after much research and advice from partners, sponsors and government officials, the Brighton Music Conference (BMC) team have decided to move the dates back seven days to the 1st and 2nd October.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from the industry and there is a real feeling that people want to get together and share experiences to help our industry survive this situation. Giving the next generation an opportunity to meet their peers to learn and network is also something we feel is important for the future of the industry. We are all looking forward to the event and bringing the industry back together for the first time.” – BMC Team
Taking place at the prestigious British Airways i360 venue on Brighton’s beachfront, the award-winning event will also have an adjusted programme for its seventh edition, but will maintain the high level of panels and talks, with key industry speakers, including in-depth discussions and debates on the biggest issues facing the electronic and wider music industry such as diversity, mental health, streaming, the environment and current music and business trends.
All decisions have been and will continue to be based on scientific evidence and public health assessments and event organisers will continue to monitor the ongoing situation. The event will adhere to all government guidelines, with a written risk assessment and mitigations put in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.
In order to comply with the new guidelines both venue & theatre capacity has been reduced accordingly, so only a limited amount of tickets remain. More information about the updated BMC programme will be released soon.
