Next year, one of Miami’s most iconic brands, The Winter Music Conference at Faena District [WMC], will return on March 25-28 with a refreshed perspective and insightful programming that will bring together a new generation of industry professionals and music consumers for a week of unforgettable experiences in the Faena District. Under the umbrella of Miami Music Week, the WMC was launched back in 1985 with the intention of bringing together music, technology, education, and culture and helped give birth to an entire industry.
Next year will be the first fully-programmed WMC wince it was announced in March 2018 that the organizers behind Ultra Worldwide had acquired the WMC and International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) properties. The Ultra Worldwide acquisition intends to restore WMC’s status as the biggest dance music industry and networking conference in the world.
For the first time, WMC will offer two distinct segments targeted at industry professionals as well as music consumers looking to learn more about this exciting industry and the music, technology and culture that powers it.
WMC // Industry is by invitation/application only and dedicated to working professionals looking to network with their peers, engage in thoughtful leadership discussions with top executives, partake in relationship building, health and wellness activities, and gain insight from business leaders adjacent to the music industry from the world of tech, marketing, social media, and more.

WMC//Access allows consumers that are interested in music production, DJing, the music industry, tech, and culture to gain access to a showcase of the top companies in the business. From educators to gear manufacturers to consumer products, Access is the place to be if you are passionate about this culture and want to dive a bit deeper. Access badges are available now and registration is open at wintermusicconference.com.
“For decades, the electronic music industry ran through WMC. It was where the mega deals were done and provided a launching point for countless legendary tracks as well as breakthrough DJs. In March 2019, WMC returns with a fully revamped program that gets the industry back to business. It’s the perfect start to an unforgettable Miami Music Week.”
