Media Business Insight announced on 22nd August that the Media Production and Technology Show has acquired assets related to Broadcast Video Expo from ITE Group.
The Media Production & Technology Show plans to significantly extend and enhance its offering to more technology manufacturers, suppliers, content and new partners for the event. Taking place on May 13-14th 2020 at London Olympia, MPTS will now be the UK’s biggest show for the broadcast production and technology sector. MBI has acquired the rights to BVE’s intellectual property, marketing data, and marketing channels.
Charlotte Wheeler, MPTS Event Director said, “Our visitor numbers were up by 25% this year and we had a record re-book level with exhibitors. We are building on the success we’ve had in developing our show over the last four years and the brilliant relationships we have with the industry and our customers. “People in the market have often said they’d prefer one UK show and now we are able to focus on delivering the biggest and best event for exhibitors and visitors. We are looking forward to working with exhibitors and visitors who have attended BVE in the past to deliver a fantastic event for the whole industry in May 2020.”
MPTS will extend its features to include new industry partnerships, a dedicated Technology Theatre, a Technology Networking Zone and a larger Broadcast Sports Theatre & Zone.
MBI’s CEO Conor Dignam said: “We have been working hard to build the UK’s biggest and best event for the TV, film and video sector. We will take the best elements of BVE and include them in our offering next year, particularly in the field of technology. This is testament to the great work Charlotte and the team have done on the show and their approach of really working closely with the industry and exhibitors to develop the show.”
