Mash Media is moving the Event Production Show to the larger Earls Court 2 venue next year following its recent success.
The 2014 show will head across west London, with the pillar-free venue set to allow greater expansion in terms of content and stands, following the 70 per cent re-book rate from exhibitors. The event will be on 11-12 February 2014.
Mash Media hailed the success of the revamped show, with visitor numbers up by 14 per cent. The show on 5 and 6 February had 3,332 unique visitors.
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.
The Access Sessions will return to the Main Stage.
The organiser plans to maximise the unrestricted space at Earls Court 2 by working alongside leading experiential agencies to create branded environments within the exhibition hall.
“We were extremely proud of the success of this year’s show,” said event director Duncan Siegle. “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 more than 3,300.
“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.”
