Media Production Show ‘sound success’!

Posted on: Monday 17th of June 2019

The Media Production Show announced it ended on a high, with its biggest ever visitor attendance of 6,500 – up 25% on 2018. Charlotte Wheeler, event director, Media Production Show, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed with positive feedback from visitors and exhibitors alike, citing the breadth and depth of the seminar programme, the diversity of attendees and the overall value that the show offers. We are in constant contact with all sectors of the industry to help us deliver a relevant, inspirational and practical event, and the developments we will make in 2020 – with extra space and more technological content in addition to our established production focus – will offer a more rounded view of the industry and its myriad opportunities.”

With Resolution magazine as media partner, the Audio Theatre was packed for every session. “There was a certain element of physical risk in pushing past the long queue to distribute our magazines for each session!” said Resolution editor Nigel Jopson. “It was great to see such interest, and demonstrates that advice from respected directors like Danny Boyle about the importance of good audio has been taken to heart by the wider media production community. The Audio Theatre could certainly be expanded for next year!”
