The show floor will include two new sections:
Production services@BVE
Formerly known as The Production Show, Production Services@BVE will provide a comprehensive solution for those who are planning a production, currently have a project underway or have finished and are looking for advice on what to do next. Hosting suppliers and service providers from onsite security companies and music libraries, to kit and crew hire, PS@BVE will cater for all your production needs.

BVE in 2013 will include a focus on multi-device digital delivery for content rights holders and those developing services across connected TV, web and mobile. Visitors can connect with exhibitors providing transcoding, CMS, CDN and digital content monetisation solutions whilst learning from the sector’s leading lights on how best to exploit content across multiple devices.

RFV: How has the show evolved over the last few years?
BVE: BVE is truly the UK's premier event for the production services, content creation, management and delivery industries. It’s a one-stop-shop for everything from 4K cameras and tapeless workflows to broadcast and media asset management systems. Many exhibitors use BVE to launch their new technologies in the UK – the first broadcast event of the calendar year. We’ve evolved from just being a three-day exhibition to offering a high-level conference, immensely popular free seminars and workshops, an invaluable networking hub as well as an exhibition hosting established industry leaders and innovative new companies. We also bring the latest developments and updates to the industry throughout the year via events, webinars, social media interaction and newsletters. The new venue at ExCeL also makes BVE more attractive to visitors from Europe, with London City Airport only five minutes away.
