Electronic music gathers here. And now, for the first time, we are offering a comprehensive networking facility and inspiration platform throughout the year.

Networking has been at the heart of the ADE experience since its earliest days, and even though many of you will not be in the city this October, it’s a tradition we are determined to continue, expand and improve. In order to do this, we’ve created an efficient and dedicated social networking platform based around our database of industry professionals from every imaginable music sector and territory, and in order that Pass holders get the maximum from the opportunities that this closed off community represents, it will operate all year round, taking global networking to a whole new level.

The all-new ADE Pro networking platform will also feature regular, strategically focused networking events with some of the biggest names and brands in the industry, as well as one-off sessions on hot-button topics surrounding the ADE Pro conference program throughout the whole year. This will empower users and guarantee access to the opportunities to grow your business and expand your profitability in new and innovative ways. Connect with fellow professionals through the home page feed or via direct messaging, and on top of that, we’ve also made sure that you can find anyone and everyone you might need through a revamped and refined search engine for companies and people.

ADE 2020's offer will enable the global electronic music industry to come together in new, time efficient and rewarding ways.
