OFFICIAL NOTE

Due to the Florida Governor’s declaration of a public health emergency and the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention’s Interim Guidance for COVID-19, the 35th edition of Winter Music Conference, originally scheduled for March 16 – 19, 2020, will be rescheduled.

“After spending the past ten months preparing for the event with our team, panelists and event partners, we are profoundly disappointed, however, there is nothing more important than the health, safety and physical well-being of our attendees and employees.”

“Winter Music Conference’s quintessential existence is based upon one principle: the future. The 35th anniversary in 2020 is not only a celebration of history, but also the ushering in of a new generation.”
– Bill Kelly, WMC Co-Founder

“Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community – many delegates had recognized me for being a consistent DJ annually at WMC. This conference enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof.”
– Danny Tenaglia, DJ/Producer

“The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.”
– Jonas Tempel, Beatport Co-Founder
