MPTS Marketing

The Media Production and Technology Show 2022 (MPTS) has revealed the first confirmed speakers in its acclaimed free seminar programme. With a focus upon sustainability, virtual production and mental health, MPTS will be tackling some of the most prevalent issues currently affecting the industry. Taking place on 11-12 May 2022 at the iconic Olympia London, the show will host more than 170 speakers across eight theatres, featuring keynote presentations, panel discussions and educational sessions. 

Charlotte Wheeler, Event Director, said, “The quality and range of our speaker programme has always been, and continues to be, a major factor in the success of MPTS. The team has been working hard to secure industry experts whose insights are a crucial part of the programme as well as speakers from smaller or growing sectors who are best placed to highlight new trends, technologies and ideas that will take the industry forward after what has been a very challenging two years for us all. This is our BIGGEST programme yet, and we hope visitors enjoy all that it has to offer.” 

The Keynote Theatre presents a host of industry leaders who will share their successes and visions for the future. Speakers include BAFTA award winning actor, director, producer and writer, Adam Deacon, Daniel Nettleton, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Bandicoot TV - the producers behind The Masked Singer - and Ria Hebden, TV presenter and broadcaster, to name a few.

Launched in 2019, the Production and Lighting Theatre proved a big hit with visitors wanting to learn about the best equipment and best practice for a variety of production genres. Back by popular demand, this year’s line-up features sessions around location filming, production budgeting, health and safety on set, new kit and tech reviews, and sustainability in production.

The Audio Theatre offers case studies, how-to sessions and product workshops featuring the latest equipment and techniques for projects from documentaries to live events and feature films. Speakers include a keynote chat with Chris Burdon, Re-Recording Mixer from Warner Bros. De

Lane Lea, who will discuss, amongst other projects, the forthcoming Top Gun: Maverick, hitting cinemas this summer. The line-up also includes talented composers across TV and Film such as

Nainita Desai, Benji Merrison and David Lowe. The theatre will also feature supporting training sessions from industry associations, the IPS and AMPS.

The Post Production Theatre examines the status of this key sector, both creatively and technologically, with examples of recent work, product masterclasses and the latest post-production workflows. Visitors will have access to tailor-made training sessions from Blackmagic Design across both days and will hear from some of the UK senior leaders managing post production and senior graders in the UK including Jet Omeshibi from Goldcrest Post and Paul Harrison from Residence Pictures. 

New theatres will focus on the rise of Virtual Production in content creation with a special stage build from partners 80six and content sponsored by Pixotope. There will be a new Technology Theatre sponsored by Ross Video plus the MojoFest area and seminar room - there is plenty for all visitors to find something of interest to them.

More details about MPTS 2022 and the speaker programme will be announced in the coming weeks. Registration for MPTS 2022 is now open at www.mediaproductionshow.com

  • 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.
