BPM | PRO moving to October and down to two days in 2017
Decision to push back and condense the event's dateline was made after analysing visitor and exhibitor feedback.
Marked Events, the organiser of BPM | PRO, which celebrated its tenth anniversary this year, has announced that the show will return to an October dateline for 2017 and will be held across two days instead of the usual three.
Next year’s event will take place on Sunday 22 and Monday 23 October 2017 at Genting Arena, NEC Birmingham.
Mark Walsh, CEO and co-founder said: “BPM | PRO has its own unique identity attracting both trade and end users to each day of the event. To continue the growth of the show, and in response to feedback from exhibitors and visitors, the return to October was an obvious choice.”
“We have also decided to condense the show to a two-day event. Again, listening to feedback, as costs are rising and most business is done in the first two days of any show, it was the sensible decision.”
The show will continue to offer its popular LEARN areas as well as the Arena, PA Experience, FX Stages and other features.
“We pride ourselves on curating an experience for each and every visitor. We work in the most creative of industries and want to represent that energy in the show, therefore the experiences and performances are incredibly important to us. 2017 will set the precedent for the future of events in our industry.” Walsh continued.
This year's event, back in September, was the first to be located at the Genting Arena – a move that proved to be a 'big success', according to the BPM | PRO team.
