Miami Winter Music Conference 2006 - Dates Announced
The dates for the 21st Annual Winter Music Conference in Miami have been announced. The 2006 event will run from March 24-28, including the 8th Annual Ultra Music Festival on March 25. It is a slight departure from the previous two years, in that the event will start on a Friday instead of midweek. This means that the Ultra Music Festival is effectively being staged at the start of the event as opposed to the end of the event.
Once again, the conference is being held at the Wyndham Resort, Miami Beach. If you are thinking of paying a visit to the 2006 event with industry business in mind, then it is a good idea to stay at the Wyndham Resort Hotel itself, since the hotel hosts the industry exhibition, seminars, demo workshops, A & R sessions etc. So when you are out clubbing during the night hours, there is a far greater chance that you will make it along to the various events if all you have to do the next morning is take the elevator!
The Ultra Music Festival is again being held at the Miami Bayfront Park & Amphitheatre, with the American Airlines Arena hosting the after party. The WMC delegate's pass usually includes free admission to the Ultra Festival.
The WMC delegate's pass also provides free or reduced admission to various nightclub events, as well as free entry into the International Dance Music Awards.
The official WMC press release states "As we evolve as a musical genre, bringing in rock and electro elements, more live performances and industry professionals, you will see a lot of new participants in this year's program."
As someone who has a wide taste in music of various genres, this sounds particularly appealing :)
Word of warning though, although you will have an excellent time in Miami during the WMC, it will also burn a large hole in your bank balance!
