Picture the scene: it’s 2022, events are back on, there’s inspiration in the air, writes Amelia Evans.
The Event Production Show (EPS) is gearing up to deliver event inspiration directly to you, bringing you back face-to-face with your industry colleagues. Discuss the challenges and opportunities you face as live events look to fully emerge from the pandemic, rekindle customer confidence and reward ticket buyers with remarkable live experiences.
On 8-9 March at ExCel London, EPS will be bringing together live event professionals from every sector; event promoters, festival organisers, production companies, corporate event planners, charities, experiential and marketing agencies, local authorities, government bodies and everything in between and beyond. The best part? It’s free to attend!
You can experience a showcase of the latest products and services from over 120 exhibitors and find everything you need to put on future events including staging, AV, equipment hire, event technology, temporary structures, security and much more.
EPS will be host to several stages offering free content: the Main Stage, MEI / NOEA stage and the Event Foundry. Panels will be exploring all the key issues impacting our sector such as sustainability, supply chain, creativity, social responsibility, security, major events and insurance as well as the potential to futureproof it.
In The Foundry you will hear from leading associations and practitioners delivering practical sessions from which you will receive key takeaways you can put into practice on leaving the show. This theatre will include updates from industry associations LAEOG and NCASS as they delve into the key issues including working for and with local authorities, how event organisers can work with caterers to improve their events and the latest updates on compliance.
Brand new for 2022 is Fanzone, an experience-led zone packed full of amazing aesthetics, spectacular sporting moments and numerous networking opportunities.
You will see, learn and meet more people at EPS in two days than you can in six months of research and calls from your place of work, so register for your free pass today at www.eventproductionshow.co.uk

OAB’s TOP PICKS
As the need for suitable outdoor spaces increases, stretch tents are the perfect solution. The flexibility of the technical fabric allows tents to be installed in numerous positions and spaces, creating unique installations for each setting.
Size and colours can be chosen to suit the venue’s environment. These tents are built to endure even strong storms and will protect from direct sun thanks to the UV light absorbing fabric which blocks rays and keeps people comfortable underneath.
Silent Noize Events
Headsets from Silent Noize can now run entirely on battery rather than mains power, meaning there are no limitations to where your event can take place – they are totally portable. You can even talk to your audience through the Silent Noize headset microphone, making the headsets perfect for fitness classes, yoga and guided tours, as well as cinema and silent discos.
Reimagine your event space and rethink the way you can entertain your audience.
