Check Out The Final Programming Of Speakers & Panels For EDMbiz 2015
Garret

EDMbiz is Insomniac’s flagship conference and expo that has hosted panels and speakers including Hardwell’s team, Gary Richards (Destructo), EVP of Interscope A&R Neil Jacobson, and more. Every year, EDMbiz has evolved to deliver the most current speakers to talk about the most pressing issues affecting the scene. To continue their elite reputation, EDMbiz steps up their programming once again with the final lineup.

Tatiana Oliveira Simonian will return to discuss EDM in terms of data with her discussion “EDM: Just the Facts, Man.” A panel of branding’s most influential company executives will tackle the expansion of EDM into other industries with “More Than a Logo: Brands, Millennials & Creating a Lasting Connection.” To tackle the convergence of music and technology, two panels will be hosted: one regarding the impact of technology “Tech Innovation & Disruptive Platforms” and one with some of the world’s largest venture capitalists called “Chasing the Dream: Entrepreneurship and Funding.”

This year’s EDMbiz will relate to EDM hopefuls, aspiring entrepreneurs, marketing gurus, analytics crunchers, and everywhere in between. The final program can be checked out below. EDMbiz will take place June 16-18 at The Cosmopolitan and registration is still available.
