IMS Asia-Pacific Returns for Its Second Year

20 October 2015



Sights are now set on the final edition of International Music Summit of the calendar year: IMS Asia-Pacific. Now in its second year, Asia-Pacific is gearing up for a welcomed homecoming. After building momentum from its first year and the most recent IMS China, IMS is bringing the Eastern industry into worldwide spotlight. IMS Asia-Pacific serves as the perfect platform to unite, discuss and collaborate as electronic music continues about the entire region.

IMS Co-Founder Ben Turner comments: “The feedback from IMS Asia-Pacific year one was incredibly positive so we’re delighted to be returning to W Singapore – Sentosa Cove in December. After the success of the inaugural IMS China recently in Shanghai, we’re really putting a huge focus and emphasis on this region. However, IMS Asia-Pacific is about the whole AP market so a broader discussion will take place. High-level networking, inspiring content, and the chance to keep learning about this great landscape for the music we live and love.”

IMS is excited to announce that Pioneer DJ will continue the long-term partnership with IMS for the Asia-Pacific event. IMS is an essential part of how Pioneer DJ plugs in to the pulse of the industry, and is a powerful body in the IMS platform eco-system and a leading force both in the electronic music and technology industries.

President and CEO of Pioneer DJ, Yoshiaki Ide, shares: “Pioneer DJ are extremely proud to support IMS Asia-Pacific for the second year. IMS Ibiza and LA have proved to be credible catalysts for moving the industry forward. Asia is also an important market for dance music, and we’re keen to continually develop our understanding of how to drive the region forward.”

W Hotels continues to be a partner of IMS after serving as the home of the first IMS Asia-Pacific last year. Additionally, W Hotels has also supported the summits in Ibiza and Los Angeles, continually supporting the electronic music industry with creative initiatives to inspire its guests.

Arnaud Champenois, the Asia-Pacific Senior Brand Director for W Hotels, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and Le Méridien comments: “Music is an integral part of the W lifestyle, and our partnership with IMS Asia-Pacific allows us to continue to bring what’s new and next in music to our guests at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove. This year, we are also excited to debut Hasnor Sidik (DJ Mr. Has) as our Music Director for W Hotels in Asia Pacific. Mr. Has will play a key role throughout the IMS Asia Pacific Summit by engaging in compelling dialogue with industry leaders while representing W Hotels.”

IMS is the premier platform of thought leadership in electronic music, fronted by music icon and industry leader Pete Tong. After hosting international and local leaders in discussion last year, IMS Asia-Pacific is setting the stage for an even further expansion, as well as a deeper connection to unearthing the unique and valuable aspects of this region. IMS is partnered with W Hotels worldwide, the global boutique hotel destination which has enabled the IMS brand to evolve outside of Ibiza into North America and Asia-Pacific through continued support in building platforms for debate through events.
