New dates and venue change for Event Production Show 2014

EventProductionShowThe organiser of the Event Production Show has announced that the 2014 show will be held at Earls Court 2 from February 11-12. It is hoped that the move to the pillar free venue will enable greater expansion not just in terms of content but also stands, adding to the 70 per cent of exhibitors that have re-booked.

The organisers plan to maximise the unrestricted space at Earls Court 2 by working alongside experiential agencies to create branded environments within the exhibition hall. Identified at the 2013 show as an integral part of the future of live events, these environments will offer visitors further opportunities for education and interaction.

Event director, Duncan Siegle explained: “We were extremely proud of the success of this year’s show. Given the short time scale and reputation of the show when we took it over from Ocean Media Group, the results are a huge achievement for everyone involved, particularly the increase in visitor numbers to over 3,200. When we purchased the show it was always with a view to developing and expanding its potential. We want to create a well-supported exhibition to cater for all corners of the UK’s vibrant events industry.

“I now believe we have an excellent platform from which to build and are in a strong position for future growth. The new venue offers such scope for greater content, creativity and cohesion and we are confident it will play a significant role in realising one of our main aspirations for 2014; to bring together more exhibition and conference suppliers alongside the core exhibitors of events professionals!”

Returning to the Main Stage will be the Access Sessions, retaining the hugely popular new format which saw speakers present directly to the show floor as audiences benefitted from greater access to some of the industry’s most well-known figures.  New for 2014 will be a dedicated stream of exhibition and conference seminars; designed to assist organisers in improving the visitor experience. The seminars will also act as a showcase for the latest technology and production equipment.
