Update on 3/8/2018: Winter Music Conference finally announced the dates for this year: March 20-22, 2018.
According to the WMC Facebook post, “2018 is the start of a renaissance for WMC. A major announcement about WMC’s future will be made at this year’s conference that will once again put it at the very top of must-attend events for the entire international dance music community.” We’re excited to learn more about the future of WMC.
Please ignore everything below as it is no longer accurate :).
We’re into January of the new year and there has been no official word about this year’s Winter Music Conference dates. The WMC web site still shows information from 2017 and there has been no activity on any of their social media accounts since October. Typically we would have already had the dates by now, so we’re getting a little concerned with the radio silence.
In addition to the dates not being announced yet, there are a couple other clues that are making us worried. Both the WMC office phone and fax numbers have been disconnected by the telephone company. Normally one would be able to call the office number to speak it someone at WMC HQ.
In addition, the Florida Division of Corporations lists Winter Music Conference, Inc. as inactive effective on 9/22/2017. The reason provided is that the corporation failed to file their annual report as required by state law. But … it’s entirely possible they simply forgot to submit the filing on time, as they have done several times in the past since the company’s inception in 1985.
Update on 2/24/2018: Winter Music Conference, Inc. corporation was reinstated with the Florida Division of Corporations on 2/22/2018. That being said, there still has been no announcement on their social media accounts or mailing list as to whether an official WMC event is happening this year. We have also not received any responses back to our numerous inquiries.
Remember that WMCInfo.com is just a fan site and this is only speculation on our part. There has been no official announcement from the organizers to Winter Music Conference and anything could change between now and March. We have put inquiries out to the owners of WMC and will update this post if we hear anything back from them.
Regardless of whether there is an official WMC event this year, there will still be plenty of events happening in Miami this March. Ultra Music Festival is scheduled for the weekend of March 23-25. Coinciding with those dates is Miami Music Week, scheduled for March 20-25. We will have MMW event tickets posted to our site as soon as they are released — typically in late February through early March.
