Having been cancelled in 2020 during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the London Book Fair wanted to ensure that 2021’s event went ahead. Consequently, for the first time since 1971, this historic event modernized its traditional offering and branched into the digital environment. On a very tight timescale, DBpixelhouse were tasked with the full, start to finish, online production for an entirely digital book fair. Under normal circumstances, this event would have remained physical, so the client’s desire was to add value for their attendants through this new digital event format. This meant that DBpixelhouse needed to create a lasting impression for the digital attendants that culminated in a successful event for our client.
Alongside Reed Exhibitions, DBpixelhouse planned, managed, and produced, a one-of-a-kind virtual experience using a combination of pre-recorded material and live content. Working to an extremely tight deadline, our dedicated production team worked quickly and efficiently to deliver a slick, polished, and professional content stream across numerous online sessions.
Working quickly to meet the clients time line, DBpixelhouse produced a virtual event that was hosted over 10 live show days with 160 presenters, 42 live Q&A sessions and over 80 total hours of pre-recorded content. The result was a successfully delivered virtual event that received popular feedback from the events online users as well as a happy and satisfied customer.
