The Media Production Show (MPS) 2018 welcomed an increased number of 5,380 visitors to London's Olympia earlier this month, showcasing a host of exhibitors and new features.

The two-day show had a major focus on audio, a hands-on Live Production experience and a Digital Disrupters theatre for visitors to learn more about the possibilities and practicalities of the latest innovative technologies. A new Production Services Village also brought a wide range of international production service providers including location companies, studios and travel management companies.
Visitors enjoyed a diverse range of expert speakers from leading organisations, including Netflix, ITV, World Productions, FOX, Channel 4, The National Trust, Technicolor, Channel 4, Immerse UK, Molinare and The Mill.

The show was praised by exhibitors and visitors alike for its content, direction and diversity, as well as its business-friendly and central location.

Many first-time exhibitors were impressed by both the number and the mix of visitors.

Brian Larter, Director, CueScript, said: "This was our first time at MPS, and we have already signed up to come back in 2019. What I like about this show is the diversity of attendees including our own customers, new leads and students who are the next generation of this industry. We have also met users who work on the programmes using our products, which has been fantastic to gain valuable feedback for our ongoing R&D."
Thomas Gibson, Marcomms & Events Marketing Executive, Sharp, added: "MPS is our platform to launch our 8k camcorder and 8k display and give people the opportunity to experience 8k image precision. There has been incredible energy and positivity towards Sharp exhibiting at MPS. We are looking to come back next year." 
Regular attendees also praised the show with Caleb Manning, Brand Specialist, Panasonic, labelling the show as a "very valuable experience".
Zoe Job, Media & Entertainment Business Manager, Jigsaw24 commented: "The 2018 Media Production Show was the best yet for Jigsaw24. The atmosphere was something special – it felt like everyone was excited to be there. Charlotte and the team provided us with the perfect platform to launch our Via24 portfolio and connect with a huge variety of industry people."
"Our events team lives and breathes the content creation industry throughout the year. We continually research technology trends and speak with industry leaders and creative professionals to ensure that the Media Production Show is informative and inspiring, to make it worthwhile for visitors and exhibitors to invest their time and money," concluded Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director, Media Production Show. "We're so pleased with the positive reception that the Media Production Show has enjoyed this year, with a huge increase in visitor numbers across the two days and encouraging feedback about the direction the show is taking. We're already looking forward to MPS 2019!"
