Glittering "Arthurs" top off another sell out ILMC

A breakfast meeting with Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and packed 'Dragons Den' meetings with  live music industry legends Thomas Johansson, Leon Raemakers, Carl Leighton-Pope and Harvey Goldsmith were highlights of another sell out ILMC in 2013, with other panels focussing on new technology, festivals, the Russian market and EDM. The ILMC weekend kicked off with the ILMC Production Meeting and played host to the Green Events & Innovations Conference, as well as important meetings for the Concert Promoters Association, Yourope (the European festivals association), The Association of Independent Festivals (AIF), The European Arenas Association (EAA) and the International Jazz Festival Organisation (IJFO)
