The International Music Summit took Shanghai by storm this year, focusing heavily on dance music's expansion into Asian markets. Many of the panels examined the fastest-growing regional market, how important Asia has become to established and up-and-coming artists, as well as how to best break through to the continent's hungry audiences.
