International Music Conference in Reykjavík

“You are in Control,” an international conference organized by Iceland Music Export (IMX) and the Trade Council of Iceland on the latest trends in music and media will be held at Hótel Saga in Reykjavík October 15-16.

“Now is the time to look forward and focus on the positive things Iceland has to offer to the international community. Music is definitely one of our strong points and we look forward to discussing the opportunities offered for creative industries in the digital space both with our fellow countrymen where many are leading exciting initiatives, as well as with our international friends who have all confirmed that they are coming to Iceland and participating in the conference,” Anna Hildur Hildibrandsdóttir, marketing director of Iceland Music Export, said in a statement.

In response to speculation that the conferences had been canceled due to the economic crisis in Iceland, Hildibrandsdóttir commented that the current situation will not affect the “You Are in Control” conference.
