Exhibition News August 2014
August 2014

In just its fourth show, Upper Street Events’ Gadget Show Live has morphed into one of the UK’s biggest consumer tech events. EN tracks how the brand is plugged into market trends.

Look back at predictions for the must-have gadget items of 2009 and you’ll find many that have been embraced by the mainstream today. Making their debuts about 36 months ago were the Wii Motion Plus, Windows 7, the iPhone 3GS, the Android phone and the wireless Apple mouse.

In the first of a new series of research and analytics columns, Vivid Interface MD and partner in new research group SEER Geoff Dixon asks: How likely are you to recommend Net Promoter Scores?

Net Promoter Scores are used by most event organisers who conduct visitor and exhibitor satisfaction research and we now tend to automatically include them in a survey.

EN casts a brief eye over the career to date of Roger Shashoua, the recipient of the first ever Exhibition News Pioneer Award at this year’s awards ceremony at Olympia.

Few entrepreneurs can claim to have beaten a path for the international exhibition industry in quite the same way as Roger Shashoua. The UK-based co-founder of four companies, including ITE Group, ICE Group and Expomedia, was launching events in China and Russia at times when others considered themselves explorative if they launched at the NEC rather than Earls Court.

As part of EN’s ongoing efforts to recognise pioneering spirit across the industry and the changing nature of events, we look at five inspiring organisers finding success by doing things differently.

A flair for education

Silverstone took the wrappers off its £27m wing last year as part of aggressive plans to transform the motoring venue into a multipurpose events destination. EN takes a look under the hood.

Exhibition venues can cater to many needs, but one whim they can’t control is their ‘cool’ factor. While facilities and location certainly contribute to a venue’s prestige, arguably it’s the content and features within these functional spaces that give them their visitor appeal. 

David Moran is not one for making detailed plans but he definitely has an eye for an opportunity. EN caught up with Ocean’s returning chief to ask him what it will take to restore the group to its former glory.

Ocean Media Group’s new owner and chief David Moran is confident he can turn the exhibition and publishing group’s fortunes around after buying the business back from AAC Capital Partners in a private equity deal.
