Selection of comments from DJ's who have attended ADE;

"Amsterdam Dance Event is like a Tapas bar where you get a lot of
small snacks at one place. Because all DJ's at ADE play for just an
hour or so, you get a preview of a lot of different kinds of
electronic music at one event." Armin van Buuren, NL

"It's very rare to mix up the words relaxed and business together,
ADE does this easily, you always end up with results in a friendly
atmosphere, it mirrors the spirit of Amsterdam, subsequently it is
always a highlight in my diary" Dave Clarke, The Netherlands

"This year's ADE reminds me of what happens when you take early WMC
and mix it with MIDEM. You have lots of parties and then in the day
you have panels and exhibits about the real issues surrounding club
music currently. All the while, you're exchanging conversation with
all the movers and shakers of the industry. Its truly one of dance
music's most important weeks on the calendar!" Dave Dresden, US

"I am a big supporter of ADE and I've said this is the
only conference that offers a perfect balance between business and
party time, in my opinion. It's well organized and people come away
with much than expected. I was happy to be a part of two panels this
year. Taking part was a no brainer because I feel the ADE Panels have
THE best selection of artists, participants etc. Had a great time."
DJ Pierre, USA

"For me this year's ADE was amazing, all the key players were there
and some good old fashioned ''word of mouth'', after a very
successful release party, definitely helped getting the international
offers in for my new album, as well as new collaborations and many
other exciting possibilities. What can I say...things came together
perfectly!" Don Diablo, NL

"If you are a music producer, dj, promoter, club owner,
organiser...anything like that: this is the place everybody is,
you're right in the heart of dance music here!" Ferry Corsten, NL

"It's just right. It's not too intense, it's not too boring, it's not
too crazy; it's just a bit of everything and unless you're here you
won't know what you're missing." John Acquaviva, CA

"The only dance conference to combine great parties with genuine
business opportunities" Judge Jules, BBC Radio 1, UK

"It was a great experience to be involved in such a prestigious
event. I found it to be one of the better conferences still around. I
enjoyed participating in the panels very much. I hope in the future
that I can return and be part of it again." Kevin Saunderson ,USA

"Without a shadow of a doubt this is the most relevant business
orientated conference in the world." Mark Knight , Toolroom Records, UK

"One of the most important music conferences for electronic music in
the world." Paul van Dyk, DE

'I was very impressed with the set up, the location and the
professionalism of the whole event. Business was genuinely done in
the day and the panels seemed to provoke some meaningful debates. The
night life was pretty awesome. Across three nights there were some
amazing parties – all very busy and very exciting.' Pete Tong, BBC
Radio 1, UK

The Amsterdam Dance Event is organized by the Amsterdam Dance
Event foundation, an initiative of Buma Cultuur, and takes place from
21-24 October in Amsterdam.
