Broadcast Video Expo (BVE), and sister event The Production Show (TPS), will have a new home in 2013. Prompted by the uncertainty over the future of Earls Court, ExCeL has been selected as the best venue to support the planned investment in the shows content and growth.
BVE and TPS have grown rapidly over the last few years and now is the perfect time to move to a bigger home, said Event Director Charlotte Wheeler. We need a venue that will allow us to offer better, state of the art facilities for more exciting seminars and features. Visitor numbers to this years show were up 35% year on year and with 70% of our exhibitors rebooking onsite. We have huge ambitions in growing the show and the move to a new, purpose-built exhibition venue is just the start.
The move also represents a major opportunity for BVE and TPS to expand its international audience, offering world-class speakers, an unmissable seminar programme and exhibitors not seen anywhere else. ExCeL offers excellent links to both Europe and rest of the UK via London City Airport, and a campus of hotels and restaurants make it an obvious choice for the relocation.
Charlotte Wheeler adds: We are moving to ExCeL at a great time. The area will have been transformed by the hospitality and transport infrastructures which are currently underway in preparation for the London Games next year; the Olympics have certainly accelerated the immense improvements to this part of London. In addition the certainty offered by a new venue will allow us to take the shows to another stage in their development and underscore their position as the essential exhibitions for broadcast, video and audio professionals.
