BIME PRO never quits, not even in the summertime. A whopping 15 new confirmations have been added in the latest newsflash from BIME PRO, materializing next 30th and 31st of October and 1st of November at the Bilbao Exhibition Center, affectionately known as the BEC!.

Joining her is another industry hotshot, Audrey Guerre, coordinator of European music venue and festival network Live DMA, where she equips members with tools and opportunities to learn and exchange best practices and represent their interests before European institutions and partners.
