Events in London - February 2012
If you organise and produce events anywhere, the Event Production Show is the "must see" event of the year for the events industry to catch up on what is developing and how to make the very best of each event. Over 200 suppliers will be exhibiting their latest products to help your event make its mark. From a simple office party to a major indoor or outdoor event, exhibitors at the Event Production Show aim to show you the up to date products they offer to help make your event stand out. In addition, you can meet other event organisers and attend one of the free Access Sessions with speakers including Michael Eavis, Harvey Goldsmith and Wayne Hemingway. For the first time, this year's show also incorporates the U.K. Venue Show 2012.

"We're off to see..." One of the best known phrases in show business and you can see Andrew Lloyd Webber's new production of the Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium - one of London's best known theatres. This re-working of the famous film for the stage contains all of the songs you may know very well from the Oscar winning film and has won numerous awards. The stage version stars Michael Crawford as the Wizard and Danielle Hope (winner of the BBC programme "Over the Rainbow") as Dorothy. Use our link to book your tickets now for this very popular show.
The Business Travel and Meetings Show, which also incorporates the Travel Technology Show, is the major opportunity of the year for those specifically engaged in business travel to get together as well as a prime opportunity for all those in related businesses to catch up with the latest technology available for their industry. A wide range of global brands through to newly started business exhibit at both shows, whilst the two shows also give unparalled networking opportunities for business professionals in business travel, hotels, venues and many other closely related businesses.
|Pure London 2012
12th to 14th february 2012
Olymia Conference and Exhibition Centrel, Hammersmith Road, London W8
..and so it begins. February is a month with several major fashion shows and Pure London starts off the series as a different kind of show to its bigger relatives - open to all and more focussed on fashion here and now. Pure London has grown rapidly over past years and this year's show will include more than 1,100 brands - an exciting opportunity for buyers and the general public to get up to date with the very latest trends in womenswear.
London Fashion Week is the event that, every year, firmly places London at the top of the global fashion industry. Whilst the extensive web site may well be able to keep you fascinated for hours, London Fashion Week is actually only open to the trade and press. Well known designers and selected newcomers get the opportunity to present their collections to the fashion world and its highlights, in most cases, are the kind of clothes that will never appear in your favourite High Street store. This year's event has an exclusively Menswear Day on 22nd February.
Most of us may have to look on whilst London Fashion Week takes place but, as soon as that closes, along comes London Fashion Weekend, which gives the general public a chance to view and to buy some of the designs in ready to wear clothes and jewellery from premier brands at discounts of up to 70%. Over 100 top designers' collections come up for sale at exclusive and definitely never to be repeated prices. Follow the link above to buy your tickets for this very popular event now !
Celebrating its 60th anniversary of this event in central London, Jewish Book Week (JBW '12) brings together a wide range of authors and scholars - historians and philosophers - to discuss their books and those of other authors in an ecumenical setting that certainly does not exclude non-Jewish visitors. A Children's Day preceeds the main event, taking place on Sunday 5th February, whilst the main event brings together a huge range of books and topics covering almost literally every topic under the sun.
Happening at the same time as London Fashion Week, the BRIT Awards are a major event in the music calendar and endorse London's pre-eminent position in the world of modern music. You and I may monitor the site linked above from 12th January, when the nominations are announced, until the main event, when the stars gather at the O2 Arena to find out who has won the coveted BRITs. The BRIT Awards are open to you and to me but we recommend getting your tickets as soon as possible as demand is always very high. Not just a night of awards, of course, as the BRIT Awards sees perfromances from many of the world's music celebrities.
Simply the biggest and best known family history event in the world, Who Do You Think You Are ?, sponsored by Ancestry.co.uk, is a wide ranging genealogy exhibition that gives those who have been researching their family's roots from some time as well as those completely new to the field a superb chance to find out what is new, discover the research carried out on a number of celebreties ancestors, discover what's new in the field and get advice on their own research from a range of experts in genealogy. From basic research techniques to the finer points of DNA research, Who Do You Think You Are covers a wider range of topics with more speakers and experienced advisers than any other show.
