Connected Media Europe to launch at BVE 2017
Connected Media Europe – a brand new signature destination that explores technologies to enable audiences to receive, discover and interact with content across any device, anywhere – is to be launched at BVE 2017. Connected Media Europe is perfectly placed within the main BVE 2017 event to demonstrate and discuss IP-focused technologies including IPTV, OTT, mobile, social and cloud.
Neil Nixon, vice-president of BPL Broadcast – the organiser of Connected Media Europe – said: “This launch represents a very positive step for exhibitors and visitors to BVE 2017, extending the reach of this already highly successful event. BPL Broadcast – a powerhouse of connected TV resources – will be committing its full marketing muscle to bringing Europe’s connected broadcasting community to London for this market-leading event. We have a proven track record in delivering similar signature destinations, and we are currently a proud partner of NAB, organising the Connected Media|IP area at NAB Show in Las Vegas.”
Daniel Sacchelli, event anager at BVE, said: “Co-locating Connected Media Europe alongside BVE will see us continue to create an all-encompassing event for the entire media and entertainment industry. It will benefit exhibitors and visitors by providing them a more complete and diverse business platform at a single event.”
Neil Nixon continued: “As BVE is the UK’s largest event for professionals involved in creating, managing and distributing video content, it was the obvious partner for us in delivering Connected Media Europe. We will be building on BVE’s strong visitor base by attracting those professionals concerned with connected technologies. Connected Media Europe, with its seminar theatre and TV studio, will sit well alongside BVE’s free seminars and an exhibition that features 300+ of the leading manufacturers, distributors and resellers of professional production and broadcast equipment and systems.”
In addition to the enhanced show experience at BVE 2017, all clients exhibiting at Connected Media Europe receive a comprehensive marketing campaign as part of the exhibitor package. Designed to run before, during, and after the event, the Connected Media Europe marketing package promotes brands across a range of media products.
At the event itself, a seminar theatre will be a key feature of the area, based on the show floor, as will a TV-style interview studio. Connected Media Europe @ BVE 2017 takes place at London’s Excel Exhibition Centre on 28 February to 2 March 2017.
