BVE 2016 will provide support for the Pro AV and live entertainment technology sectors for the first time, after the decision was made to expand the trade show’s scope through the launch of London Entertainment Week.
London Entertainment Week features a weeks’ worth of co-located events and awards ceremonies structured around BVE aimed at celebrating the wider UK media and entertainment industry. It is set to take place in London’s ExCel from Monday 22 February 2016 to Friday 26 February with BVE at the heart, taking place from Tuesday 23 February until Thursday 25 February.
Already recognised globally as a major showcase for products, services and prestigious seminar programs, the show now offers industry support for new developments in Pro AV and live entertainment technology. The expansion follows the merging of technologies between live events and broadcast sectors alongside organic expansion into the market over the past few years.
London Entertainment Week provides an opportunity for partners to present events for the entire creative sector from the well-established trade show platform of BVE.
In addition to the series of co-located events across London, London Entertainment Week includes an 850sqm ‘Pro AV and live entertainment technology zone’ on the show floor, providing space to cover all aspects of event production; kit for theatre and performing arts, concerts and touring, festivals, outdoor events, corporate events, conferences, houses of worship, educational establishments, leisure facilities and corporate installations.
“We’re really excited to be working alongside top industry organisations to expand the BVE trade show into the Pro AV and live entertainment technology sector,” said Daniel Sacchelli, event manager. “The development of the co-located events and activity throughout London Entertainment Week supported by new exhibitors and partners will position the show as an event for the entire creative and entertainment industry.”
