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