May 16, 2022
After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, The Media Production & Technology Show (MPTS) delivered a remarkable 2022 edition with the largest ever number of feet through the doors in the show’s history.
A record 8,000 visitors, including Advanced-Television’s Managing Editor Colin Mann, attended the two-day event, held at London’s Olympia on May 11th and 12th, where a programme comprising 230 exhibitors, over 130 live sessions, 250 hours of free content across eight theatres, and 330 speakers showcased the cream of the UK’s creative and technical excellence.
Visitors were also treated to interactive exhibitions and seminar programmes covering all aspects of broadcast, content creation and technology including audio, remote production, lighting, post, sports broadcasting, training, production and post-production.
Award-winning documentary filmmaker, broadcaster and author Louis Theroux delivered the Headline Keynote Address in which he spoke about his extensive career in immersive documentary production. Other notable speakers who put the spotlight on diversity and inclusion in the industry included Ade Adepitan, Adam Deacon, John Partridge, World of Wonder’s Fenton Bailey and Kitty Scott-Claus.
Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director, Media Production & Technology Show, commented: “After a very long two years away, the team and I were delighted to welcome so many the industry professionals through the doors of Olympia once again. The support that the show received from the community was outstanding and we feel that MPTS is now firmly marked in the industry event calendar moving forward. We had a phenomenal rebook into 2023 already, and we are absolutely thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive reception that this year’s edition has received. Bring on MPTS 2023.”
