Taking place on Thursday 2 February, the Live Events Summit will bring together speakers at the forefront of the industry to discuss the latest innovations impacting the sector and the changing nature of live events venues.
Organised by TPi Magazine and hosted by its editor, Stew Hume, the Live Events Summit will highlight the state of the industry post-Covid-19 while exploring some of the realities of pulling together a stadium world tour in a post-pandemic world. This will include an in-depth look at Rammstein’s latest tour with lighting and show designer Roland Greil, who will give a first-hand perspective into what it was like to once again hit the road with the German metal heavyweights.
Paul Moore, director of production and building operations at Factory International, which is behind The Co-op, Manchester’s latest multi-purpose events space, which is due to open later in 2023, will talk about the changing demands of clients and how the venue is built to cope with these demands.
The challenge of dealing with clients will also be picked up in a panel discussion entitled ‘Offering Solutions: Keeping up with client’s expectations’. Here, Rebeca Sanchez Pastor, founder & creative director, Ledscontrol and Valerie Gard, senior audio engineer, Creative Technology will discuss how they go about tackling a brief from a client and some of the latest technological innovations at their disposal.
The day ends with a look at how advances in visual technology are changing the parameters of the live events space. Sarah Cox, founder, Neutral Human; Lewis Kyle White, creative director, Pixels & Noise; and Michael Giegerich, managing director, Stage Precision, will share how they are utilising the latest in digital visual technology, including XR and VR, to create whole new experiences for audiences around the world.
TPi’s Hume said: “The Live Events Summit will be a forum to explore some of the changes we are likely to see in the live market in the coming few years and what the tours of tomorrow may look like. It will look at some of the latest technological trends and hear from a number of thought leaders who are working at the coal face of the live events sector to make live events even more spectacular year after year.”
