When asked about the sponsorship, Aisha Winfield noted, "This conference provides one of a kind opportunities for our students to get involved, network, and learn. The quality of the information provided at the conference and the passion of the IMC organizers was a perfect match for Jr Music Executive. Students often want to know how to make money in the music business, the IMC is offering 3 full days of answers."
InterMixx.com is the parent company that presents the Independent Music Conference (IMC'07), the online independent music store IndieGate.com and is the publisher of InterMixx independent music magazine, one of the first independent music magazines since 1988. The IMC evolved from a desire to build a trustworthy network for artists within the indie community along with raising awareness, support and value for independent music. The first IMC took place in 2003 and IMC '07 will be the sixth conference that InterMixx has presented. Other IMC events are also planned for Dallas, Los Angeles and Charleston, WV.
IMC President and founder, Noel Ramos has helped to create and establish credibility for the indie community in his nearly twenty year publishing career. In addition to printing InterMixx, one of the oldest national magazines devoted to indie music, in the early 90's Ramos developed the IndieList, the first independent music discussion group online, long before MySpace became a household name.
