For one night only, the global electronic music industry will be convening in Sentosa Cove for a day of panels, keynotes and talks that are bound to shape the future of the industry in the region and throughout the world.

First presented by Pete Tong in 2007, IMS was initially created to inspire debate and implement progressive change in electronic music. And since that first installment, the conference become widely regarded as the premier platform for thought and leadership in that scene. Described as “the TED of music conferences,” IMS has grown its reach across continents and is now an award-winning industry event that's been honoured by The DJ Awards, and boasts multiple panels that have been voted among the "Top Electronic Music Debates of All Time" by Beatport.
