Ferry Corsten, Tommie Sunshine, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Krewella, Beatport CEO Matthew Adell and Billboard’s Kerri Mason are among the international speakers confirmed for Australia’s second annual Electronic Music Conference, to be held Dec. 2-4 in Sydney.

Ex-pat Aussies Tommy Trash and Stafford Brothers will also make the long-haul flight for the event, which expands this year into the spacious Carriageworks venue.

In its inaugural year in 2012, the EMC boasted some 400 delegates across a two-program which featured speakers Tiesto and Diplo. Organizers will be hoping for even more for this year’s confab, which will drill into the theme “Asia in Focus.”

Notes EMC founder Neil Ackland, “EDM is exploding across the Asia Pacific region. Our goal with EMC is to make Sydney and EMC the hub for the regions industry leaders and artists. We will be bringing industry leaders from across Asia Pacific to Sydney to encourage collaboration and ignite business opportunities for artists and the industry.”

Sponsors include inthemix.com, Moshtix, Rdio and Miller.

The EMC is timed to coincide with the Sydney leg of the national Stereosonic tour, which takes place over two days from Nov. 30.
