Christophe Cassan, BIME Pro project manager, said: ‘Now in its fifth year, BIME Pro invites music and tech industry visionaries from across the globe to network and explore new ideas in a unique forum not found at regular conferences, with the emphasis on connecting Latin/South American and European business partners.
‘For 2017, our focus will be on strengthening the Congress of Spanish Festivals, inviting the representatives of some of the most important artists in today’s music scene, while continuing to grow the Startup Summit internationally to become a reference for creative entrepreneurship.’
