Event Production Show is tomorrow! We’ll be making the journey from Old Street to London Olympia early, ready to begin our path of events and technological enlightenment.
After we indulge in coffee and a few croissants, we’ll get cracking. Our schedule is pretty crammed (it’s a shame we can’t wear trainers). Full of great discussions and panels, along with the fascinating insights and information we’ll undoubtedly gather, we fully expect this year’s Event Production Show to be the greatest yet.
Here’s our agenda for the Event Production Show:
Day One – Wednesday 18th February
11.00am Main Stage
Piers Shepperd, Wonderwork will chair ‘How important are Opening and Closing Ceremonies to the cultural heritage and legacy of large Sporting Events?’.
Be sure to check out our recent blog ‘Our Favourite Opening Ceremonies at Major Events’.

Anton Christopoulou & Ollie Williams from Imagination will talk about ‘Using technology to enhance visitor experience and engagement’

Question Time: What will 2015 bring? with Stuart Galbraith from Kilimanjaro @Kililive

There’s more to festivals than music! Why do so many festivals sell out before the line-up is even announced? This session will explore the additional areas of entertainment and creativity that provide festivals with their identity.

11.00am Lineout Theatre (@RuRambles) – @GruveEventTech
Ru Barksfield from Gruve talks ‘A Sporting Chance: with more and more brands choosing high profile sporting events to launch or promote their products, this session takes a look at the rise in experiential activity within sport!’
