Every October, thousands of budding filmmakers, videographers and corporate producers make their way to the new and impressive Ricoh Arena, Coventry. They gather there for the Institute of Videography’s (IOV) Annual Convention & Trade Exhibition - to attend seminars on the craft and business of videography, view the very latest video technology and enjoy the excitement of the gala IOV Awards Ceremony.
The video production industry has continued to grow in recent years - despite the recession. Boosted by the increasing demand for online content, coupled with a growing public recognition of the benefits of having business and domestic events recorded professionally, the industry is set to expand at an even greater pace now there are signs that the economic climate is changing for the better.
ABC Video Facilities Ltd is one of those making the trip this year. “It’s a great event to attend for a number of reasons. The trade exhibition enables us to get up to speed with the latest technology and best practices, but also the networking opportunities are equally important to us. We often work in isolation in this industry so it’s great to get out and meet other like-minded professionals.”
This year as well Chris Dell (ABC Video Facilities Ltd) has been shortlisted for the IOV Corporate Video Production 2009 for his corporate video ‘Adventure Play’ produced for leading playground designer Sutcliffe Play on behalf of local award winning PR Company MTJ Associates Ltd. The winners will be announced at an Awards Ceremony on the evening of 14th October.
Now in its second year at the Ricoh, the IOV’s Annual Convention & Trade Exhibition (IOV2009) is being held on 14th & 15th October. IOV2009 will once again provide an opportunity for its exhibitors to showcase and sell the latest video technology and supplies. It will also host a compelling range of seminars, IOV award-winning film screenings and other social events for those from all avenues of professional video production.
