ILMC's First Contact 30th Birthday Blast-off

You only celebrate your 30th birthday once, so to mark this momentous occasion, we’re inviting friends, family and intergalactic invaders to join us for a birthday party like no other.

From 6-9pm on Tuesday 6 March, we’re opening up the entire mezzanine floor of the Royal Garden Hotel, for a stellar early evening line-up of fun; killer tunes from world-class DJs; top-secret competitions and prizes; and a guest list that stretches across the entire musical multiverse.

As if that isn't enough to guarantee invaders from all quadrants of the galaxy, guests will be able to take their very own space flight in our on-site simulator powered by cutting-edge tech.

The party starts early so that delegates can head out for the evening afterwards. And with a galaxy of space-themed food, space cocktails and presumably soon-to-be spaced attendees, the only thing without space might be the venue itself – so early arrival is recommended.

All registered ILMC delegates are welcome to attend, while entry to non-delegates is via guest list only – you must register to attend. Links to RSVP will be mailed to all invitees, and also included on relevant ILMC eNews bulletins. If you haven’t received an invitation and would like to attend, please email registration@ilmc.com.

Texas Probe 'em Poker Tourney

With poker, roulette, and aliens... there’s a lot more to the annual poker tourny this year, which moves to a larger 'space' – the Quantum Casino – to accommodate its increased popularity.

It’s not hard to find a decent card game on Earth, but few assemble such a cast of stellar characters OR raise money for such a worthy cause. The tournament sees a ragged collection of galactic gamblers and space cowboys come together during this annual battle for space chips and one of the bar tab prizes up for grabs.

Sign-up when you register, or click here to secure your place on the list. Alternatively, if you really feel like a gamble, swing by on Wednesday night and enquire about any last-minute places before the event commences.

The tourney costs £30 to enter and all proceeds go towards the Nikos Fund, which this year is raising money for Music Support, an organisation that provides help and support for individuals in any area of the music industry who are suffering from alcoholism, addiction, emotional or mental health issues.

The Table Football Coupe du Galaxie 

A late-night battle of quick reactions and sometimes out-of-this-world skill, The Table Football Coupe de la Galaxie sees players compete in pairs for the smallest World Cup on Planet Earth.

Forget UEFA, this is more like UeFO, and with this year’s theme in mind, it’ll be squeaky bum time as successive attacking pairs probe each other’s defence.

Sign-up in pairs on the night as 22 little (green) men fight for glory on ILMC’s two tournament-certified tables. Be in The SMG Space Bar with your co-player by 22:00 when the battle for universal recognition commences under the watchful eye of IQ’s Terry McNally.

All ILMC delegates are welcome to attend, meet and mingle with the WME team and other guests. A stepping-stone between ILMC’s daytime schedule and evening events – including the Gala Dinner – it promises to be a popular interplanetary pit stop, and so early arrival is recommended

Be afraid. Be very afraid. You might wish you were on a distant planet, or even solar system, when the annual ILMC karaoke takes place - always the scene of a multitude of sins, all of them against music. Expect general mayhem, hilarity and some truly alien performances as the event stretches into the early hours of Friday morning.

This year’s karaoke will feature a live backing band (www.rockaoke.com), and an AirX Guitar competition that promises prizes for the most rock-god-like performances.

With boxes of props and costume inspiration on hand, this late-night scene of debauchery and silliness is an event not to miss, unless you're sober.

The Final Countdown Dinner 

As a launch pad to the weekend, the Final Countdown Dinner will see delegates head to Dirty Bones in Kensington, the upmarket US-style diner rated four-stars by Time Out for its “fun-loving atmosphere” and “pimped dude food”.

With a three-course menu ranging from flat-iron steak and slow ‘n’ low ribs, to mac and cheese, and other unidentified frying objects, it promises to be a last supper cooked to perfection.

After three days of conferencing and close encounters, it’s a moment to relax with friends, colleagues and other intergalactic travellers before the evening fun that follows. And as anyone who’s experienced ILMC’s closing dinners before knows, it pays to expect the unexpected.

Tickets for the dinner cost £60 in advance, and include a welcome drink, coffee, and some other top-secret elements.

Sign-up when you register or email registration@ilmc.com for more info.
