Royals ruin plans for London tech show
Don’t worry PC Pro readers: you won’t be forced to choose between watching the Royal wedding and attending the inaugural London International Technology Show (LITS).
LITS was originally set to take place between 29 April and 1 May, but rather than compete with the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the show will now take place October 21 to 23.
“As soon as the date of the Royal Wedding was made public, the phones started ringing with exhibitors asking what the new show dates were,” said event director Jay Tyson. “After weighing up the facts, a nationwide holiday, the nightmare of getting a hotel room and potential public transport issues, it took us less than 30 minutes to make the call.”
“The enforced move actually benefits the show,” Tyson added. “To be honest, the extra six months gives us time to re-scale the show and deliver an even better event.”
John Pudney, sales director, said: “The new date will become part of the technology industry calendar – October will mean London and LITS,” he added.
The event takes place at ExCEL in London, bringing together the expertise of PC Pro, Bit-Tech, MacUser, Expert Reviews, Know Your Mobile and more Dennis tech titles. The show will have seminars, demonstrations, product launches and exclusive show offers on PCs, Macs, mobile devices, gaming, photography and more tech topics.
