New seminar theatres and new networking events throughout 26-28 February 2013
BVE 2013 will bring a host of new opportunities for broadcast and media professionals to learn from and be inspired by the leading experts in production, post and content delivery. The event, which attracted nearly 16,000 visitors in 2012, takes place at ExCel in London from 26-28 February 2013.
The Olympic-sized venue has enabled the organisers to add two brand new seminar theatres, a conference and additional networking opportunities.
Anita Pal, Event Director, i2i Events, said, “BVE has always been about connecting people, both through our unrivalled free seminar programme that attracts the highest calibre speakers, and also the networking opportunities afforded by the biggest content creation event in the UK. This year, with our move to ExCel, we are able to branch out further than ever before, adding a Cinematography and Lighting Demo Theatre and a Connected @ BVE Theatre to our regular theatre line up. We will also replicate the Skills Zone and Bar Meet-Up events that have raised a great deal of interest at BVE North, as well as working with various partners on fringe events leading up to andduring BVE 2013.”
