International Music Summit (IMS) Ibiza & Shesaid.so combine for the 12th Edition
The 12th Edition of the International Music Summit (IMS) Ibiza is to be presented with
For those that don’t know IMS takes place in Ibiza at the Hard Rock Hotel over May 22nd-24th. Over three days the global electronic music scene assembles industry leaders and artists from the international electronic music sector and beyond to inspire and be inspired, whilst also allowing a platform to discuss business, culture and also educate.
Today they’ve announced their collaboration with the leading female empowerment organisation in the music industry SHESAID.SO. IMS and shesaid.so share the same key ideology and vision: creating an environment that supports collaboration, creativity and positive values. Key objectives of this partnership are to break down gender stereotypes whilst promoting and increasing the profile of women who are making an impact in the industry.
IMS co-founder Ben Turner states: “IMS has been on a journey of self-discovery in recent years and we feel ready to focus our event and its curation around striving for inclusivity in as many areas as possible. This is our third year working with Andreea and the shesaid.so organisation, and it really feels natural and unforced to share ideas and ideology with her team. It feels like our hearts and minds changed a few years ago but not enough action was being taken and IMS must lead by example. We can’t hide that IMS was created originally by six white males, but we can change everything else around us to promote the best in the industry from across professions. IMS is more open to collaborating than ever before and I personally hope we can encourage more women to speak, attend, perform and help shape the industry they love.”
shesaid.so founder Andreea Magdalina states: “We are excited to renew our partnership with IMS this year as a programming co-host. This gives us a greater opportunity to create more visibility for women and other marginalized communities in electronic music and beyond at one of the most forward-thinking music conferences in the business. Our relationship with Ben Turner and IMS exemplifies the shesaidso collaborative ethos – to constructively work together to address the gender gap where necessary and propose solutions for the industry to adopt further. IMS has positioned itself at the forefront of innovation in electronic music and we are thrilled to augment the experience with our programming ideas.”
