This inaugural event will build on the momentum started by Loveparade San Francisco and continue to grow annually. The SMC mission is to bring together professionals in digital music, media, and technology, to generate new opportunities, create synergies and identify trends for the future.
"Our intention is to bring in the most interesting, creative, irresistible presenters and vendors from around the world, giving our target market a chance to learn and share ideas that exists nowhere else," said Jennifer Manger, founder and CEO, SMC. "San Francisco is the only city in America that is a hub of both digital music and cutting-edge technology, and is the natural setting to host a next-generation event like this."
The Summer Music Conference will consist of two days of digital music technology exhibits and panel discussions with four days/nights of festivities. The opening networking dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 27th at SupperClub. On Thursday, September 28th & Friday, September 29th SMC will feature two venues offering panel discussions and exhibits on the most cutting edge technology, industry developers, pioneers and trendsetters. The conference will culminate on Saturday, September 30th with the Summer Music Conference Festival event taking place in the heart of San Francisco at Civic Center Plaza, offering 4 stages of music and all genres welcome.
SMC is excited to announce Temple as one of the two venues participating in SMC. Temple is the newest 20,000 square foot venue in San Francisco featuring the only Martin sound system on the West Coast, state of the art visuals and world class cuisine - opening in early summer 2006.
In addition to the conference and festival, expect hundreds of events featuring some of the best talent the world has to offer. For those interested in planning an event during SMC 2006, please contact SMC directly and they will be happy to support you though their extensive network of contacts based in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
