International Music Summit (IMS), the premier global platform for business, culture and education within the electronic music industry, returns in 2019 to the dance music capital of the world for its annual three-day educational, inspirational and motivational thought-leadership forum...
As an incredibly powerful and poignant year draws nearer to a close, today IMS announce its cornerstone theme for its 12th summit on May 22-24th 2019. The platform, once described as “the TED of music conferences”, has been responsible for leading initiatives that have resulted in positive change within the electronic music industry and it continues to set the agenda for the genre across the world in Europe, North America and Asia.
Focused on evolving and elevating the potential of both the individual and organisations in order to unlock success, IMS Ibiza 2019 will assemble industry leaders and artists from the international electronic music sector and beyond, to inspire and be inspired, throwing a spotlight on the most crucial business challenges and opportunities we face today. Special emphasis on health and wellness for mind and body will also continue to be a summit focus, with daily yoga, meditation and reflection sessions offered to all delegates.
REMEDY STATE, the first wellness, creativity and performance retreat aimed at the Arts & Entertainment industry, will also return to the serene Sa Talaia for IMS Ibiza 2019, building on the critical momentum generated during its 2018 sold out debut and continue supporting the health and wellbeing of our industry. Aligned with IMS 2019 conference agenda Remedy State will also be increasing its focus on self-actualization, personal development and human potential.
Participants in the fully immersive 2-day retreat will experience one-on-one consultations with doctors, coaches, and nutritionists, lectures from world leaders in the fields of mental health, mindfulness, fitness, and performance coaching, hands-on workshops from cutting-edge practitioners in the fields of sleep, sound healing, breath work, yoga, fully inclusive organic & paleo meals and more.
IMS Co-Founder Ben Turner states “We are still feeling the energy that came from IMS Ibiza 2018. From the glow of those who attended Remedy State, to the Pete Tong Keynote Introduction on Avicii passing, through to the emotional SheSaidSo gathering on Friday to the incredible energy of Dalt Vila… It was truly the most inspiring event we’ve created, with an open, honest, heartfelt summit which seems to have given many a refreshed outlook for the months ahead. We aim to build on this new-found positive perspective and take it a step further with a focus on reaching the Flow State, and harnessing creativity and productivity in our work and daily lives.”
Along with the carefully curated three-day summit of inspiring keynotes and workshops, delegates will experience powerful networking sessions, Ibiza opening parties, the IMS Legends Dinner and the annual IMS Dalt Vila closing celebration.

Special discounts for students, Under 25’s and Ibiza Residents are also available providing full summit access as well as entrance to selected Ibiza clubs and opening parties over the duration of IMS week.
