BIME PRO convenes the big names in the music industry to debate the future of the sector after the cancellation of over 800,000 concerts worldwide so far this year.

The 8th edition of BIME PRO, will take place on the 26th, 27th, 28th, and 29th of October. It will be held in a unique urban setting, downtown Bilbao, supported by an innovative digital ecosystem that will amplify the reach of this unmissable date for music professionals on a global level.

At BIME PRO we believe in the need to feel that we’re closer than ever—closer to all the businesses, professionals, students, institutions, sector entities, brands… to all of us who make up this professional fabric and who for years have been coming together to debate, discuss, learn, and innovate—collectively, inclusively, for us all. To this end, despite the consequences arising from this crisis, BIME PRO is committed to continuing forward and offering a program that will help shape the strategies of the future of the music industry,” declares Julen Martin, Director of this event which takes as its theme this edition #máscercaquenunca (closer than ever).

Another reason for this edition to extend an extra day, stretching from 3 to 4, being held in hybrid format and bringing together the actors of the European and Latin American music industries.

A panel of speakers hailing form different disciplines within the Creative Industries will complete its varied and choice program. At this time we’ve already confirmed the presence of Mike Malak, prestigious agent for international artists such as Billie Eilish; Rafa Sardina, producer for Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, and Alejandro Sanz; and Tomás Tello, music supervisor for “Money Heist” among many others. The event will also be a meeting point for representatives of European and American associations among many others.

In addition, its program will be supported for another year with the largest festival congress on the Peninsula, BIME PRO Fests; the advanced training cycle BIME PRO Campus & the meeting of startups BIME PRO Start Up!.
