Emap has acquired Broadcast Video Expo and The Production Show from its joint venture partner, VCM events. Emap had previously owned a 55% share of the business.
Event Director Charlotte Bowskill said: “Broadcast Video Expo is the leading event for the content creation industry in the UK, bringing together the latest technology and innovation for broadcast professionals. A successful working partnership with VCM has enabled the show to go from strength to strength, delivering hundreds of seminars, increasing exhibitor numbers and attracting over 12,000 visitors. We look forward to continuing a close relationship with our customers, associations and the press to deliver an even stronger show in 2011.”
Plans for 2011 are already in full swing and include a new 3D Revolution seminar room, enhanced Audio Room, larger post production suite and improved VIP programme. The company is also promising that the 2011 show will be 15% bigger with more exhibitors and seminars. It takes place on 15-17th February 2011, Earls Court 2, London.
