"We're excited to launch the MPTS Virtual Preview Festival to provide the industry with an opportunity to engage, connect and learn before the live exhibition in May. Our recent research has shown how much our community has missed being part of events and the benefits they offer, so we're delighted to be able to provide an exclusive event enabling further learning and networking in early 2021 to complement MPTS in May."

  • What I like about MPTS is that it covers everything from creative to very high-end technology. The benefits of attending are simple, it's THE annual event for the screen production industry in the UK and provides the opportunity to connect with people from across the production process

  • Panasonic have supported MPTS since its inception, because we wanted to support a show that both considers the constant evolution of our industry and helps deliver new opportunities for our business. We consider MPTS to be a key show for the UK as it provides a platform that focuses on the technology advancements that impact the creative industries, and that is something we want to be a part of
