Brighton Music Conference scheduled for 1st – 2nd October 2020

We’re really excited to announce that Brighton Music Conference WILL be taking place at the British Airways i360 on the 1st / 2nd October 2020!!

The UK government has advised us that from the 1st of October 2020 trade shows, exhibitions & conferences will be allowed to resume & after much research & advice from our partners, sponsors & government officials we have decided to reschedule & push ahead with the event.

This decision has been & will continue to be based on scientific evidence & public health assessments. We continue to monitor the ongoing situation. As well as implementing social distancing, the event will adhere to all government guidelines, with a written risk assessment & mitigations put in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.

All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates & should the event not take place they’ll be carried over to #BMC21.

In order to comply with the new guidelines both venue & theatre capacity has been reduced accordingly, so only a LIMITED AMOUNT of tickets remain.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive feedback from the industry & there is a real feeling that people want to get together & share experiences to help our industry survive this situation. Giving the next generation an opportunity to meet their peers to learn & network is also something we feel is important for the future of the industry. We are all looking forward to the event & bringing the industry back together for the first time” – The BMC Team

Here’s a few of the comments we’ve received from the industry:

“It’s great that the Brighton Music Conference (BMC) is happening at the start of October. The electronic music industry has been one of the hardest hit by the Coronavirus Crisis, & it’s important that networking/information-sharing events such as BMC are held — in a safe way — in order for the industry to work together & seek solutions to emerge out the other side.” – Carl Loben, DJ Mag Editor

“We support BMC in its decision to move the conference back to the 1st/2nd October 2020, adhering to the safety measures in line with Government Regulations, with a focus on ensuring the event can take place in a safe environment, Brighton Music Conference is one of the shining lights of the music Industry, its commitment to industry education, technology & talent has stood testament to its growth & success over the last 7 years” – Michael Kill, NTIA CEO

“Brighton Music Conference is set to run at the start of October & will be the first physical electronic music conference in many months. From discussions with the organisers, they are planning an inspiring educational event with robust safety standards for the industry to share knowledge & know-how to build a positive future for the scene.” – Greg Marshall, The Association For Electronic Music General Manager
