about futures forum

Futures Forum is a day of discussion and networking among the next generation of live music industry leaders. Designed for young professionals, it takes place as part of the International Live Music Conference (ILMC).

Futures Forum will bring the individuals that currently define the business together with those who will drive its evolution. Mixing new ideas, future trends and tomorrow’s technology, it promises a progressive day of fresh thinking.

Futures Forum will experiment with non-traditional conference formats, mixing connected discussions with immersive workshops, TED-style presentations by thought leaders, peer-to-peer networking and career-boosting mentoring.

If you are a working professional looking to build connections, expand your knowledge or contribute to the future of the business, Futures Forum should be a relevant platform for you.
