It may seem like one of the biggest cliché’s when it comes to event write-ups but for this year it is most definitely true when we say that BPM is back bigger and better than years gone by.
After proving itself as Europe’s number one go to DJ Technology conference BPM is stepping it up again and not resting on its laurels by adding more elements to enhance the customer experience, new exhibitors, new panels, new in-show events have been added to the running order and the line up of manufacturers who already use BPM as a test bed to show off their range of existing products as well all the new kit they are going to drop into the public domain.
BPM is setting up camp over the weekend of the 12th – 14th September in its now established home at the Birmingham’s NEC Arena. Tickets for this year’s BPM DJ & Electronic Music Production show come in a three-tiered format and are on general sale now.
General Admission tickets cost just £15.00 when purchased in advance of the show, giving visitors a cool saving on the usual door price of £20.00.
Advance Enhanced Experience tickets are priced at £39.00 (costing £49.00 on the door) and ensure Fast Track entry to the show, access to the exclusive CHAUVET BPM Arena viewing area, a free drink inside the Arena, and a limited edition BPM 2015 T-shirt.
The advance VIP tickets will cost £89.00 (more on the door) and offer convenient Fast Track entry, access to the ultra-exclusive VIP Lounge, including complimentary drinks and light snacks, and an exclusive VIP Magma bag. VIP pass holders will also gain access to the exclusive viewing area in the CHAUVET BPM Arena and will also receive a limited edition BPM 2015 T-shirt
And there is still a chance to make a £5.00 saving on the entry price using our exclusive DJMAG5OFF code when you book your tickets online, unfortunately with over 90% of the tickets already bagged, the chance to win a free set of retro-styled Zumreed ZHP–005 headphones (if you were one of the first 100 people to order advance tickets) has gone. But there will still be plenty of chances to pick up all sorts of goodies at the show.
As well as guaranteeing entry to BPM 2015 across all three days, these advance tickets will permit entry to the co-located PRO Performance and Venue Technology show, essentially giving visitors an added bonus of being able to check out two shows for the price of one.
The Pro Performance and Venue Show is a one of the newer additions to BPM over the last few years and focuses on (well as the name suggests) the Pro club and venue install side of things Audio, Lighting, Video and Effects, which sits perfectly with the whole theme of the weekends offerings.
One of the most popular in-show events back for 2015 is the New Product Demo Stage, which was a major attraction at 2014’s show, a dedicated area showcasing some of the hottest new kit that has just been released or will be hitting the stores over the next few months.
Whilst some of these products will be on show throughout the event, the New Product Demo Stage is a chance to see them all in their full glory.
Pioneer DJ, Native Instruments, Allen & Heath, Korg, Numark, Denon, Moog, and Arturia are just some of the manufacturers already lined up to deliver some top draw demonstrations. With over thirty demo slots, the Product Demo Stage will be one of the busiest attractions of the weekend.
In an additional announcement that will please ‘turntablists’ and ‘scratch perverts’ everywhere, the DMC World Championships will host its UK Finals at this year’s BPM show. Now sponsored by Rane this years championships will no doubt be a top attraction to all those who marvel at the deck wizardry of these DJ supremoes.
BPM lays claim to being the Europe’s biggest DJing and electronic music production event, providing thousands of visitors with three days of high-octane performances, inspiring educational content, and interactive product displays. It’s also the ideal place for DJs, producers, performers and technicians to hang out with like-minded people and get to experience all the fun of the fair.
