In 2019 Miami saw the rebirth of one of its most iconic brands, Winter Music Conference (WMC). In 2020 the legendary WMC celebrates its 35th anniversary as the longest-running conference of its kind. The annual gathering that helped give birth to an entire industry from its humble beginnings back in 1985 is now stronger than ever with a renewed sense of purpose and direction. Under the umbrella of Miami Music Week (MMW), the Winter Music Conference will return to The Faena Forum on Miami Beach, March 16-19, 2020 with even more updates, panels, demos and insightful programming that will bring together a new generation of industry professionals and music consumers for a week of unforgettable experiences. 

 

As ever, WMC’s programming will continue to offer a diverse line up of topics for aspiring artists, working professionals, and newcomers looking to take their first steps into the electronic music industry.
