BVE show cancelled as Media Business Insight buys assets
The UK’s Media Production and Technology Show (MPTS) has bought the assets of the Broadcast Video Expo (BVE), which will close with immediate effect. BVE’s former owner, ITE Group, made the decision to close the show prior to MPTS acquiring the assets.
The move means the Media Production and Technology show will be the UK’s biggest broadcast and media entertainment and technology show when it takes place at London Olympia on 13-14 May 2020.
According to a broadcastnow.co.uk report, ITE Group told exhibitors and visitors that its decision to close the show was the result of market feedback and backed MPTS to deliver a single event for the industry.
“We have been listening to feedback for some time now that the broadcast exhibitions industry is too crowded. ITE Group plc have therefore decided to cancel BVE from 2020 onwards and to sell the BVE intellectual property to Media Business Insight, the organiser of the Media Production & Technology show.
“By selling BVE to MBI, we believe your industry and your business will benefit from having only one major show in London – the Media Production & Technology Show – which will enable the entire UK broadcast, production and post-production community to gather together every year.”
