Since it began, the ILMC Production Meeting has become one of the foremost platforms for international production professionals to meet, network and discuss the most pressing issues affecting the industry.
In 2018, 200 or so of the world's most renowned production managers; health, safety & security specialists; crewing companies; sound and lighting companies; venue personnel; staging & infrastructure companies; transport & travel specialists; new technology suppliers, and promoters' representatives made their way to London for this one-day event, which runs the day before ILMC kicks off.
IPM 12 will take place on Tuesday 5 March 2019, again hosted in the larger surroundings of the Royal Garden Hotel’s main conference rooms, providing ample space for the day’s programme.
Communal networking areas are shared with delegates of the Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI) that takes place simultaneously in the Royal Garden Hotel. To maximise the exchange of experience and information IPM & GEI will this year share some of the programming, tying in elements of production and green innovations.
The programme of IPM is a mixture of panel topics and Production Notes sessions, which showcase new ideas and innovations in short-format presentations. A delegate pass to IPM includes a five-star buffet lunch, access to all conference sessions, tea & coffee breaks, an IPM conference guide with full delegate information, and entry to the IPM Closing Drinks party.
Each edition of IPM is hosted by a renowned figure from the production world. Previous hosts have included Dan Craig, Lee Charteris, Bryan Grant, Keith Wood, John Probyn and Carl AH Martin. Details of IPM 12's day host will be published here soon.
To be kept in the loop about everything IPM, you can sign-up to our mailing list here. You will receive up to eight emails per annum, and can unsubscribe at any time.
The IPM agenda consists of four main panel topics and a series of Production Notes. The IPM 12 agenda, compiled using both feedback from previous IPM delegates, and the IPM Advisory Group (an invited group of figures who kindly give their time to ensure the IPM agenda is as relevant as possible), will be published below as and when agenda items are confirmed.
A delegate pass to IPM includes access to all conference sessions, a conference guide containing all IPM delegates' contact information, complimentary coffee & tea, a five-star buffet lunch, and a closing drinks party in the company of peers, GEI delegates, and early-bird ILMC delegates.
