We are very pleased to let you know about our plans for 2021.
The media, entertainment and creative production industries, are being rapidly disrupted in many ways, including the challenges in 2020 driven in a large part by the impacts of Covid-19.
METexpo 2019 was the conference and show that was created with this context in mind and shaped by a range of industry and member engagements and feedback. In the lead up to, during, and post event, we have continued to engage with our members and the industry community to deliver an even more focussed event in 2021 to meet the needs of the membership, visitors and the participants in the show.
We are working with our long-term partner Expertise Events to deliver a conference and exhibition that hits the high quality that members and visitors expect.
The key highlights of METexpo 21
- Sydney conference to be based in a new location that will integrate more smoothly the conference and exhibition in one unified space at the ICC.
- The date of the event moves to August to deliver a landmark Australian based media, entertainment and technology show and conference ahead of any international shows in 2021.
- There will be two dedicated conference streams exploring the technology standards and innovation, with ground breaking local and international papers and presenters.
- There will be ample opportunities to engage strongly with the industry product and service community including two early evening social events.
We would love your help
- No event like this can be a success without the passion and efforts of the members who contribute to conference with their expertise and efforts to write and present on the day.
- We will soon be looking for the ideas for submissions for the 2021 conference which will be themed around the technology challenges and innovations you can share with our community of media professionals and engineers.
- With three days of the show to prepare and deliver, we will be looking for members of our SMPTE community to get involved in a voluntary capacity, to help us ensure we make a smooth and excellent event for all. We will be announcing our METexpo members volunteering initiative, where we look for you to get involved and some ways we can say thank you for your efforts.
The SMPTE team here in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands look forward to a very exciting 2021 and to an engaging and thought leading METexpo on the 18th - 20th August 2021!
