The annual gathering of dance artists, fans, and industry reps at the Amsterdam Dance Event has become one of the most favored moments on the electronic calendar. When ADE returns for its 22nd edition Oct. 18 to 22 of 2017, organizers expect 375,000 visitors both from within the Netherlands and from around the globe. It's become the largest such congregatin in the world.

“Amsterdam is the centre of the global electronic music scene during ADE, a hotbed for cultural and technological innovation,” ADE director Richard Zijlma is quoted in a press release. “It’s amazing to see that thousands of delegates and music enthusiasts are spending more and more time in the city each year.”

Sounds like a good time to expand to overseas markets, so ADE will continue its international growth with ADE Global Sessions Mumbai, India, from Feb 23 to 25, as well as with a showcase at SXSW in Austin, Tx. Mumbai's Global Sessions will include Q&As, strategy meetings, master classes, plus networking and speed dating events – in case you're looking for the industry professional of your dreams – and more. ADE will also co-present India's concurrent Biggest Guestlist Club Festival.
