TIMJ @ The Gadget Show
April 19, 2010, Author: Joe Staley
Gadget Show Live has firmly established itself as the UK’s biggest and best consumer technology event following the phenomenal success of its 2010 show. Taking place at the NEC from the 7th to 11th of April, the show attracted a record 66,114 attendees, more than double the number in attendance at its launch event in 2009.
Based on the popular Channel Five television programme, The Gadget Show Live is a collaboration between North One Television, Five and Upper Street Events and provides visitors with the chance to see, try and buy the very latest in technology. The event had more than 200 exhibitors showcasing their latest products, alongside a host of features where visitors trialled exciting gadgetry and games and had their personal questions answered.
More than 45,000 people attended this year’s Super Theatre which accommodated over 4,000 visitors three times a day. Presenters from the TV show, Jason Bradbury, Suzi Perry, Jon Bentley and Ortis Deley gave a high-energy performance packed with highlights from the TV show, including challenges, audience competitions and appearances from some special guests.
Both Trent and I set out to this massive exhibition to bring you a heavily edited version of what to expect from next years show incase you missed it this year, and a backstage chat with long term Gadget Show presenter, Jason Bradbury! For those of you who did go, why not sit back, relax and enjoy seeing highlights of a truly amazing weekend!
