The Media Production & technology Show

MPTS Connect Virtual Event


Each year at the Media Production & Technology Show, we begin the live content stream on every theatre with industry overviews from panels featuring the leaders and executives across the broadcast and media industries. These are known as our ‘State of the Nation’ sessions.

As we are unable to run live this year, we are bringing you a one-day special virtual event covering these sessions across the following areas:

  • TV Production Landscape
  • Post-Production
  • CTO’s/Heads of Technology Viewpoint
  • Suppliers - Covid impact
  • VFX

This event is free to attend for those working in the broadcast and media industries. It will be held virtually on Wednesday 12th May 2021 on our virtual platform Hopin.

  • 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
