This year, MPTS makes a welcome return to Olympia London (11-12 May). It’s bigger and better than ever before, with a sold-out exhibition and a packed seminar programme focused on technology, virtual production, sport, audio, post-production, production and lighting.

The event kicks off with a session with Louis Theroux talking through his varied and extensive career in award-winning documentary production. The seminar programme also includes an interview with Matt Smith, director of Amazon Prime Video’s Rooney documentary. There is an ‘In conversation With’ session with actor, writer and director Adam Deacon; a discussion with TikTok head of media partnerships Normanno Pisani about creating sports content that resonates with the TikTok audience; and a panel discussion on future tech trends.
