BIME has been an amazing event and stands way out from other conferences in the industry that I have visited this year. It focuses on specific subjects and on the importance of South America in the worlds music industry. It was stimulating to have the organization introducing you to other professionals in a happy and active way. I have come home with many good and important potential clients. Thanks BIME.

I thoroughly enjoyed my first time at BIME and cannot wait to return. I was also very impressed by the number of Spanish and International professionals present, and that really made a difference. Bilbao is also a great city with incredible restaurants.Rob Challice – Coda Agency

BIME 2015 is by far the best and most useful music conference I have been to in the last decade. The lectures were well found and passionate, the atmosphere was comfortable and casual, but the experience was intense for all those that live and breathe music.Peter Cooper – Business Development Director at [PIAS] Iberia & Latin America
