What is the Media Production Show?

We’ve spent the last four years building the Media Production Show into the UK’s leading media production event, taking place each summer, and bringing together the production and technology communities in TV, film and the creative sector.

It is adynamic event that is the perfect platform to do business and to network, with more than 200 key industry names giving invaluable insight on trends and hot topics and over 150 leading brands showcasing the latest tech.

The dates for the Media Production Show 2019 show are 11thand 12thJune at London’s Olympia.

You have changed your dates for 2020, why?

We have held a successful show in the June dateline for the last three years and by listening to our market and being proactive in how we deliver our event we have brought the show forward. We will be the first UK show held after NAB. The show developments don’t stop there though; we are delighted to confirm that we will continue our focus for the production and post community through our exceptional free content programme and wide-ranging relevant exhibitors, but we will also bring technology to the forefront of our show in 2020. Our first commitment to this enhancement is that, from 2020, the show will be called The Media Production & Technology Show, and will take place on 13thand 14th May at London’s Olympia.

What can visitors at the Media Production Show expect to see this year?

The event is designed to adapt and grow with the market, offering visitors the latest industry innovations and insight via its exceptional free seminar programme that will deliver over 200 of the most prominent thought-leaders and creative minds in the industry, from companies including UKTV, Sohonet, IMG, Kudos, Film4 and Pinewood Studios, as well as the exhibition that will welcome over 150 exhibitors. New features for 2019 include:

Technology and Post Creative Hub – offering state-of-the-nation debates and leading experts discussing the magic of film, editing, the value of supply chain and best practice for cloud content production; as well as master classes for VFX artists and colourists, and a Women In Media seminar;

Broadcast Sports Zone – featuring illuminating presentations on critical sports broadcast topics including remote production, fan engagement, AI and machine learning in sport, and Esports;

Production and Lighting Theatre – created in response to significant visitor feedback, this new stage will present panel discussions, masterclasses and leading experts from the production world advising on the best kit and strategies for a variety of production genres, from run-and-gun lighting to safety while shooting on the move;

Production Village - the Village enables key supplier and service companies to showcase their brands and offerings to a dedicated audience.

What brands can I see this year?

Key brands and manufacturers already making MPS their show of choice for the future include Panasonic, Sony, 3Mills Studios, Fujinon, Fujifilm, disguise, Sennheiser, HHB, Jigsaw24, Altered Images, CCK, XTFX, Canon, BT Media & Broadcast and Holdan, to name just a few. Plus, we urge visitors to take some time to visit the smaller stands – this is often where you will find a genius gadget or fledgling technology that is set to revolutionise the industry, or at least make life a little easier on set or in post.

Can you highlight any key speakers confirmed for the show? Are they suited for everyone?

MPS has become well known for the exceptional talent that we bring to our speaker’s forum and 2019 is no exception. On the Keynote stage we will be bringing documentaries to life by looking at ‘Super-Docs’, from those that bring in-depth insight about 4-year olds, to the inside of ambulances, to the tense reunion of the pop band Bros. Drama, Natural History, UK film and entertainment powerhouses will also be present with some of the biggest indies in the UK on stage.

The Audio Keynote presenter this year is Glenn Freemantle, Academy Award®winning sound editor with credits such as Gravity, Slumdog Millionaireand 127 Hours. Glenn has also recently finished the sound work on Yesterday, the new Richard Curtis film set to be a summer hit.

Other topics covered across our theatres include AI, Cloud, storage management, media and entertainment security, lighting, safety on set and prosthetics in film & TV, audio… there are too many great sessions and speakers to talk about in a paragraph!

In 2020, you will change the name to The Media Production & Technology Show, How important is it to include the technology focused audience?

The UK content market needs a show which delivers something for producers to heads of technology. With the SVODs now having a serious UK presence as well as attendance at the show, we need to be reflecting the high end technology changes that affect the large indies and post houses, but also offer a range of sessions that offer practical advice and training to content creators from across the content creation spectrum.

That has been missing in the UK for the last few years, but we feel that you will see that reflected on the show floor this year, and it will become more prominent in 2020.
