The seventh edition of Rio Music Conference (RMC) - the electronic music’s largest trade show in South America - will take place from February 4th to February 17th. In the midst of the biggest street party in the world, the event will bring together innumerous artists, producers, journalists and businessmen, besides relevant people from the electronic music scene and the creative industry, both national and international.

On this year's panel we have Peter Hook, Joy Division's and New Order's former bassist; Vivien Lewit, in charge of YouTube's artistic relations; Bill Kelly, co-founder of Winter Music Conference; Martin Gontad, Creamfields Argentina's organizer; Clarissa Pantoja, AB Inbev's Global Head of Music; Craig Pettigrew, BPM Festival's co-founder; Gui Boratto, DJ and producer; Renato Ratier, head of D-EDGE and Warung nightclubs and many mant others. 

And then we have a 5 day music carnival featuring some of the world biggest DJ’s including Tiesto, Showtek and more to be announced.

The RMC divides its schedule in two: the conference and the festival, featuring the biggest names in the industry. The first part focused on business and the stimulus on market development, which sums up panels, workshops, trade show and the Club Week. The second part is entirely directed to entertainment with Rio Music Carnival, a five days festival with the world's top headliners. 

If you happen to go there please have fun for me. I'd love to go to Brazil!! There's an estimate of 120.000 people participating in the event through its 14 days, including around 500 parties along Club Week, the Rio Music Carnival and the conference.
