What professionals have to say about the ADE:

"The thing I admire the most about the dance music community, is their organization and their world acknowledgment to the public. They serve them. The technology flip from vinyl into CDs and MP3s has made this transition on the turntables seamless. The panels were fantastic and informative. Oh how great it would be if hip hop just borrowed a slice of their managing commitment from the dance realm headed and organized by ADE." - Chuck D / Public Enemy / SLAMjamz Recordings / USA

"It's very rare to mix up the words relaxed and business together, ADE does this easily, you always end up with results in a friendly atmosphere, it mirrors the spirit of Amsterdam, subsequently it is always a highlight in my diary" Dave Clarke / The Netherlands

"The only dance conference to combine great parties with genuine business opportunities (preferably after midday...)" Judge Jules / BBC Radio 1 / UK

"It was a great experience to be involved in such a prestigious event. I founded to be one of the better conferences is still around. I enjoyed the panels very well, participating. I hope in the future that I can return and be part of it again." Kevin Saunderson / USA

"This year's ADE was great as always - interesting meetings, fantastic parties and certainly good music." - Paul van Dyk / Artist/ DJ / Producer / Germany

" ADE '07 was far more than just a celebration of Dance Music within Europe. I found the entire event -- and our panel in particular -- to be a provocative exploration of the genre's future throughout the world. ADE has quickly become a significant international conference, and I absolutely look forward to next year's event." Steve Schnur / EA Games / USA.
