APRIL | BIGGER PICTURE Best in show What: Event Production Show Where: Olympia London When: 26-27 February Organiser: Mash Media Photo: Splento In complete contrast to 2018, with glorious sun filling the exhibition halls at Olympia, Mash Media welcomed more than 18,000 guests, over two days (26-27 February), across three stand out shows: International Confex, Event Production Show (EPS) & The PA Show. The Event Production Show offered inspiration to more than 6,000 delegates, with the highest level of rebooks experienced since Mash Media purchased the show in 2013. Duncan Siegle, exhibition director for Event Production Show and The PA Show, was also in buoyant mood: “It was fantastic to see the hard work of the show team, speakers and exhibitors rewarded by such highly engaged shows. “The quality of exhibits was extremely high and this helped deliver events that our visitors really enjoyed. After the bad luck of last year, it was excellent to see the power of EPS and The PA Show in full flow. We are already deep in planning to carry on this success at ExCeL London in 2020”. Julian Agostini, managing director, Mash Media, commented: “This was a really positive week for Mash Media which reconfirmed our passion and desire to deliver for our customers and the communities our exhibitions, events and publications serve. These are exciting times for us with opportunities to build our existing brands and to explore new ideas as we expand our team and develop our capabilities”. International Confex, The Event Production Show and The PA Show will take place 25-26 February 2020 at ExCeL London. 08
