The D.I.M.E.S. “Empowerment Pact” is a groundbreaking initiative between D.I.M.E.S. and the leading global marketplaces specializing in TV, Film, Music, Media, Entertainment and Sport.
Together we create the opportunity for untapped industry talent and companies from historically underrepresented and excluded communities to attend these marketplaces, conferences, and industry events for the first time at a special discounted rate 50-75% lower than the regular attendance fee.
This “Lead by example” initiative allows individuals and companies identifying as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, (and) People of Color), LGBTQ+, Women, Non-binary and persons living with disability + other underserved and underrepresented groups attending these marketplaces and events a “Seat at The Table” and the opportunity to connect and do business with the leading companies and individuals in the industry.
International Music Summit (IMS) was created in 2007 by Ben Turner, Danny Whittle, Mark Netto, Pete Tong & Simeon
Friend. A thought-leadership platform for industry, culture and education in electronic music, the organisation champions
ethical and sustainable growth and aims to be a catalyst for positive progress and transformation from the boardroom to the
dancefloor. The flagship annual event of IMS, IMS Ibiza, unites thousands of delegates from across the global ecosystem
of electronic music, incorporating a three-day summit, the IMS Business Report, IMS Legends Award and the iconic IMS
Dalt Vila closing celebration at a UNESCO World Heritage Site. IMS is co-hosted by Pete Tong and Jaguar (both BBC Radio
1), alongside long-term sponsor Pioneer DJ. Follow IMS on Instagram ,
