It is this time of the year again when we embark on the UK biggest regional event for audio and video professionals – The Look Listen Experience 2015.
Starting off in Glasgow on March 17th, then passing through Manchester on the 19th, Bristol on the 24th, and finishing in London on March 26th, the LLEx2015 brings the latest in professional broadcast video technology to thousands of video professionals throughout the UK.
It is also a great place to attend seminars discussing key industry issues and get advice from leading experts in the production and post-industry.
We know how busy folks in the broadcast and video industry can get, and it is not always possible to get a chance to see the latest developments and offerings from the industry major manufacturers. That's why we created the Look Listen Experience Road Show, so we can bring the kit to you and let you get your hands on it, speak to the manufacturer reps, chat up with fellow camera professionals, editors, sound recordists, producers and many more.

What's New For LLEx 2015?
For the past few months, we've been preparing the event, and we've constantly asked ourselves this questions – how can we make the Look Listen Experience Road Show a better and bigger experience for our visitors?
We've conducted an intensive research exercise with industry professionals to ensure the event focuses on areas invaluable to you. As a result, we've introduced a completed new skills based seminar programme and invited a wider range of manufacturers to demonstrate their latest products.
The Visual Impact areas will also be new; mirroring the needs of the local community they will focus on different product ranges in each region. Glasgow will feature grip equipment, Bristol specialist Natural history products and London will have 4 genre themed stands where top DoP’s will give informal presentations and ‘hints and tips’ sessions in the main exhibition hall. These experienced cameramen will take you through the equipment being used on award winning shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, The Great British Bake off, Holby City… More details available on the individual venue pages.
