Attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the Keynote Theatre to hear presentations that get to the heart of industry issues; and the popular Audio Theatre and Broadcast TECH theatre also make a return, covering a broad range of topics including cloud, live IP, HDR, UHD, Dolby Atmos, insights into sound for drama and sound for documentaries, and podcasting.
Charlotte Wheeler, event director of the Media Production Show, said: “This show has a real and achievable strategy moving forward, thanks to a team and a business behind it that has a true understanding of the industry and a passion for delivering for our customers and our visitors. By listening to our market and being proactive in how we deliver our event, the 2019 show is poised to be our best yet, with outstanding expert speakers, new relevant features and a full roster of exhibitors ready to share their knowledge.”
Wheeler added: “Our vision extends beyond 2019, however - firstly with a move next year to a May date that puts us just three weeks after NAB and also avoids the start of the summer filming season, enabling more creative professionals to attend. Secondly, we are committed to bringing technology closer to the forefront of our show in 2020, leading to the new event name, The Media Production & Technology Show. This will enable us to broaden the appeal of the show with more content aimed at engineers, technology heads and CTOs, while retaining a firm focus on production.”
