After over a decade of successful shows, Marked Events has announced the closure of its BPM | PRO event along with the arrival of four new shows focused on different areas of the entertainment technology industry.

The flagship event, which started life as the DJ-focussed BPM back in 2007, has grown into a full-scale entertainment technology show, incorporating everything from high-end audio/lighting to award-nominated FX Stages.

But in light of numerous industry factors and the current economic climate, organisers Marked Events have decided to end on a high and refocus their efforts on four new shows, each aimed at differing sectors of the BPM | PRO audience.

The four new shows throughout 2018 and 2019 will each focus on a different sector of BPM | PRO’s former market:

GIG - The Professional Entertainer Show – Genting Arena, NEC, Birmingham

An event for DJs, singers, performers, bands and more – 21 and 22 October 2018

WORSHIP Technology Show – Manchester

A trade show for specifiers, installers and users of sound, lighting and AV equipment used in places of worship – 6 and 7 November 2018

CLUB + BAR Technology Show – London

A trade show for specifiers, installers and users of sound and lighting equipment used in clubs and bars – Spring 2019

LIVE Production Show

A trade show for specifiers, installers and users of sound and lighting equipment used in stages, tours and festivals – Spring 2019

“BPM | PRO was successful, and has remained successful until the end, but I felt that our momentum was starting to drop. As we all know, times have changed; the way we market, the routes to market, and our sales channels have all gone through significant transformations over the last decade,” said Marked Events CEO Mark Walsh.

“This is a bold move, but one I firmly believe in. The shows will be affordable and highly focussed to the needs of the audience. By delivering a targeted visitor experience at a tangible cost we can build worthwhile events for the future of our industry.”
