EPS Conference themes

The Event Production Show conference programme will host over 50 sessions across two days in 3 thought provoking theatres. These sessions will cover the hottest topics and biggest challenges facing our sector today and over the next event season.

APPLY TO SPEAK

Our Main Stage keynote theatre will tackle the following key subject areas:

Supply Chain

Supply Chain

The outdoor events industry is in the midst of a supply chain crisis post pandemic.  Following a full 2022 season, what lessons have been learnt and how can suppliers, production teams and promoters work together to ensure 2023 is not similarly affected?

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

A core theme throughout the show, D&I initiatives will be thread through all discussions to demonstrate how it can be woven through all events and businesses in the sector.

Creativity

Creativity

Live events are a creative dream but how has the 2022 season delivered its usual ‘wow factor’ amidst budget restrictions and what does the 2023 season look like to ensure audiences continue to flood back?

Sustainability

Sustainability

We have a moral obligation to create sustainable events but what is the threat to your business plan if you do not embrace it and make it part of your plan?  How does the industry commit to and successfully reach net zero by 2030?

Social Responsibility & Ethics

Social Responsibility & Ethics

Festivals and their organisers work hard to create safe, legal environments and take on the burden of responsibility when, in several cases, the issues are societal.  What can be done to work with the festivals to relieve the burden on the organisers?  Or is it a case of their event, their responsibility?

Ticketing

In our sessions we will discuss the latest tech and how to make your visitor experience as smooth as possible, starting right at the door.
