A full list of ILMC 30 delegates will be available here from February 2018. This list will be updated on a weekly basis until the conference has taken place.
The ILMC Networking Scheme allows delegates to communicate with each other and plan meetings in advance of the conference.
Members of the scheme are issued a password to access a protected section of this website, where they can find each other's contact details. To take part, please tick the relevant box when registering or contact email@example.com.
Contact details for all delegates are listed in the Globetrotters Guide (which you will receive upon your arrival at ILMC) but the networking scheme is the only way for delegates to access each other's contact details in advance.
The adult-in-charge of the Networking Scheme is Tom Hopewell, who will be able to advise you on getting the most out of your weekend, and will be on hand to make the odd introduction, if necessary.
The Networking Scheme goes live in February 2018, when all delegates who have signed up will be notified via email. This information will be updated every Friday until the conference has taken place.
Additional seating will be placed in The Space Bar during the day, The Hangar-out Room will be open non-stop throughout the day, and additional space has been created in the Lancaster Suite. Additionally, ILMC delegates have exclusive use of the Goat Tavern, just across the road, on Wednesday and Thursday during certain hours.
Outside of these times, The Goat is also open to the general public.
Outside the main ILMC networking spaces, there is a wealth of cafes, juice bars and pubs within a 60-second walk from the hotel, perfect for meeting away from the main bustle of the conference.
Once again ILMC will have a mobile app that allows visitors to the galaxy to plan their schedule, top-up their delegate pass, get conference updates, and network, all via their smartphones.
As your handy digital guide to all things ILMC 30, the mobile app allows you to build a personalised conference schedule; browse comprehensive speaker biogs and photos, and get an up-to-the-minute schedule of all sessions, events and paranormal activities. And all in a tiny digital format, small enough to fit inside your telephone.
The app is brought to you by those clever folks at Greencopper, purveyors of apps, widgets and other innovative technologies for musical events.
The app will be available to download here from February 2018.

UK delegates who drive to the venue will be subject to a Congestion Charge (between 07:00-18.00 on weekdays) unless their vehicles use alternative fuels. As the current daily charge is an astronomical £11.50, it might be more economical to charter your own flying saucer.

Situated in a prime location, its placement makes sure you catch the passing crowd both coming and going. The cost of promoting your services or product (either a leaflet or other marketing materials) on the leaflet table is £400 with all proceeds going to The Nikos Fund.

If you have booked and payed for a place on the Leaflet Table, please send your marketing materials to the ILMC Production Office, Royal Garden Hotel, 2-24 Kensington High Street, London W8 4PT to arrive no earlier than Friday 2 March 2018. Alternatively, bring your materials directly to the conference and deliver them to the Help Desk. Please do NOT send marketing materials directly to the ILMC office.
Places must be pre-booked no later than 6PM GMT on Monday 26 February 2018. No materials will be accepted unless a place has been pre-booked and paid for.
As part of our environmental policy working towards a more sustainable conference, we encourage you to use 100% recycled materials in the manufacturing of your promotional literature where possible. We would also like to remind you to collect any materials left at the end of the conference and either reuse it or dispose of it correctly to avoid unnecessary waste.
Any materials left at the Royal Garden Hotel will be subject to a £100 recycling fee.
Each year, The Nikos Fund raises money for a chosen registered charity to commemorate the life and contribution to the ILMC of one of our founding members, the late Nikos Sachpasidis.
Every delegate automatically makes a donation to The Nikos Fund just by registering for the conference but there will be additional opportunities to further swell the coffers by giving generously via the Nikos Fund collection tins, strategically placed around the Royal Garden Hotel and occasionally shaken loudly in your face during the conference.
ILMC 30's charity of choice is Music Support, who provide help and support for individuals in any area of the music industry who are suffering from alcoholism, addiction, emotional or mental health issues.
