Media Production and Technology Show postponed until May 2022

MPTS Team
The Media Production & Technology Show now will take place from 11–12 May 2022 back at Olympia and for the first time will be held in the National Hall.

After carefully monitoring the progress of the vaccine rollout in the UK and abroad, and taking the government’s recent statement about the potential timeline for the reopening of business and public events, the organisers of the Media Production & Technology Show have announced that the event has been postponed until 2022.

The decision to move the show a full 12 months and reschedule into May 2022 has not been taken lightly. It has been made because of continued questions about the rest of 2021 and the possibility of hosting large-scale events, as well as the availability of venues and other industry events already booked into the latter part of this year.

Additionally, with some form of social distancing and limitations on public gatherings likely to be in place for some time to come, the Media Production & Technology Show organisers decided that its customers and partners would need time to reasonably plan and invest in the event to maximise their attendance at the show.

“The health and wellbeing of exhibitors, visitors and our staff is of utmost priority to us and we feel this is the best course of action for all, said Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director. “It has not been an easy decision to make, and we are deeply disappointed that the show will not take place this year. Following all the hard work from the team and all of the industry support we have received, this was going to be their biggest show yet. But now more than ever it is important that the industry support each other and navigate through these difficult times.”

The Media Production & Technology show team look forward to welcoming everyone back at Olympia in the National Hall on 11–12 May 2022 and delivering another exciting event for the industry.

  • MPTS is an important date in the calendar for us, this is THE only broadcast show in the UK that supports pro audio. It’s great to be back amongst our industry peers and we look forward to meeting customers old and new.

  • The Media Production and Technology Show is a great event for connecting with the local media and entertainment community - from broadcast execs to heads of production and post facilities, right through to the hands-on crew and operators that rely on our media services and technology solutions. As longtime supporters of MPTS and regular exhibitors at the show, we've seen the event grow bigger and stronger each year.

  • Shows like this are so important for the TV industry, especially just after covid. Coming out of covid, it's so important to get out there, see everyone, make those connections and make magic happen, this is exactly what the television industry needs.

  • It's lovely to see everyone back in the same place after such a long absence. And there’s a real buzz to the event today, there’s a lot of people here, there’s really nice energy. It’s been a really difficult 2 years for a lot of us, out of adversity comes innovation.

  • We get to showcase, network, collaborate, learn and experience so many aspects of this profession. We met some game-changing clients and contacts who have added significant long term value to our external operation. With the Technology sector integrated this year, we're excited to understand how that could broaden our reach even further...

  • For the industry, shows like this are so important because everyone is working on their own thing and working incredibly hard, sometimes you have to step back and take a look at what other people are doing, what the competition are doing and bounce off one and other. So to have a situation where you can meet other industry professionals and discuss some of the challenges that you’ve faced, I think it can only be a good thing.

  • As the industry comes back together for 2022, one-to-one relationships are more important than ever and The Media Production & Technology Show provides ELEMENTS with a great platform to meet with like-minded people in this specialist industry.

  • MPTS has always been an event which we enjoy being part of, giving us the opportunity to meet our current customers in one place and being introduced to new ones. This year is most exciting, due to us being able to see faces we haven’t seen in quite a while, and the first exhibition we will be at this year.
