While Ultra Music Festival which runs hand in hand with Miami Music Week and the Winter Music Conference has still to make an official announcement of their cancellation for 2021, David Ireland, Director of Winter Music Conference and Miami Music Week as well as the Business Development Manager for Ultra, has announced the future plans for WMC 2021.
Following suit with a virtual format, WMC 2021 is set to take place digitally in late May. As per Ireland’s LinkedIn post, he said, “After months of waiting and figuring out a roadmap, we are working on executing a virtual edition of WMC in late May. The Magnetic Agency Group will be partnering with WMC for this WMC Virtual edition and we are currently working on partners, speakers, content, etc. More info to come…”
With the world becoming hopeful for a return to some sort of normalcy as vaccinations for covid-19 have begun, with no clear end in sight, large scale events of this scale need to be realistic, and going virtual for at least the first half of this year seems like the way to go.
While he didn’t divulge any other details except the new format and timing, he promised more details would follow soon and also shared that the deck for WMC21 was available upon request for those who are interested in being a part of the event in any way.
While the WMC website’s home page currently is still only sharing news of the cancellation of the 2020 event, after Ireland’s post we can stay tuned for updates and details.
