IMS IBIZA SUMMIT OPENING REMARK
MARK GROTEFELD – PIONEER DJ


25 April 2022

Doesn’t it feel great that IMS is back in Ibiza? This is one of the most important milestones in the calendar and we’re proud that Pioneer DJ will again be present to showcase our latest Pioneer DJ offerings and host some special workshops based on topics we’re passionate about.

The last two years have felt long, but we’ve used this time to reflect on what’s really important in life. Pioneer DJ has always been a people-first brand and, now more than ever, it’s essential that we continue to look for ways to support our employees, industry friends and peers with their mental well-being. With this in mind, we’ve partnered with the Art Of ARETÉ program to offer a Sound Healing workshop at IMS focusing on movement meditation with sound and toning techniques. Hosted by DJ/Producer, sound designer, and vibrational sound practitioner Tracie Storey, this session will teach key movements to activate the energy which runs through the meridians in the body to relieve everyday symptoms such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, and recurrent physical pains.

The metaverse and virtual clubbing are both hot topics currently. For more than a year, people have had the opportunity to play with virtual versions of some of our flagship equipment on the Tribe XR DJ school and performance platform. To see just how life like the software is, drop by our stand during IMS and you can witness it in action.

Whether people want to learn on virtual gear or the real thing, it’s important they have access to DJ setups and tuition. Brands like ours need to engage with the next generation of talent and, in collaboration with IMS, shesaid.so and Lady of the House, we’ll be running DJ workshops at IMS to introduce aspiring DJs to the art of mixing. Who knows, maybe we’ll meet a future IMS Dalt Vila headliner?

Enjoy IMS Ibiza Summit and be sure to say hi if you stop by our stand or bump into our team. After two years away, they can’t wait to see you there.
