BSC Expo 2015 moves to Pinewood
The 2015 BSC Expo is gearing up for a cracking event later this month as it is now taking place at Pinewood Studios UK for the first time.
The BSC Expo is annually recognised as a go-to event for the UK production industry and is heralded as the first opportunity to see the latest technology and products available.
This year marks the expo's largest event yet, with Rob Saunders, event director, saying: "We have more than 100 companies taking part and we are using two stages - the Richard Attenborough stage, plus the H Stage where we are hosting the seminar programme. Additionally, we have outside exhibits, including an aerial camera rig system being demonstrated for the first time ever in the UK."
Organised by the British Society of Cinematographers, the scope of the event has increased dramatically not only in terms of venue, with the society choosing the biggest studio in the UK to hold the expo, but also regarding audience.
As it pertains to exhibitors, the event this year is already completely sold out. Concerning the escalated scale of the event Saunders said: "We are really excited about how many companies chose the BSC Expo this year to showcase new products. We like the film studio location as it makes the event unique. Hosting an event in the heart of such a well-known industry setting is a great opportunity.
"It's a chance for anyone in the industry to not only see and use the latest equipment but to also learn about these technologies and how they are shaping the industry through our seminar programme, plus of course it's an ideal location to network with industry peers."
The Knowledge is an official media partner for the event and will be in attendance on the Friday.
The show is open from 10-7 on Friday 30th January and 10-4 on Saturday 31st January.
