time we have exhibited at a broadcast-based event. It has exceeded our expectations with the number of people we have spoken to from the production services sector, and we’ve seen a good mixture of bookers and influencers. It has definitely been worthwhile to exhibit at BVE.” The new elements and features of the 2015 show solidified its view on the evolution of the broadcast industry, expanding and introducing partners from non-traditional sectors including marketing and AV. With this in mind, the show organisers are now building on the diverse visitor and exhibitor profile at this year’s show and the continuing convergence of the UK’s creative industries with plans for London Entertainment Week 2016, a week-long series of events built around an expanded BVE show. The event will encompass film, TV, commercials, theatre, brands/ corporate, AV, live events and gaming. Supporters to date include Raindance, EVCOM, the IABM, Escape Studios, VFX Festival 2016, ABTT and BKSTS. Alison Willis, Portfolio Director, said, “We’re so pleased with the response we’ve had to this year’s BVE. The feedback we have received so far has been phenomenal – nearly 80% of the showfloor has already been rebooked for 2016, including leading names such as WTS, Sony, JVC and ARRI - and we have strong support for our plans to create a broader event next year. We are already investing heavily in diverse content and wider marketing campaigns to involve and enthuse all sectors of the UK creative industries. The world of broadcast is converging and I see it as our responsibility to lead the field and provide the UK Broadcast businesses and associates with the platform needed to move the industry forward.” 2015 has shown BVE as a force to be reckoned with, with proven growth and major exhibitors investing more trust in the delegates who attend, demonstrated by the product launches of ARRI and JVC. Next year is set to be the most exciting yet with an ambitious week long celebration of the British creative industry. Bring on February 2016!
