Live supply chain crisis focus at expanded IPM in 2022


December 7, 2021

400 production professionals expected for physical return of ILMC Production Meeting in March

IPM will publish special Live Event Supply Chain 2022 report following top level debates

The crisis in the live event supply chain will be a central discussion point during the physical return of the ILMC Production Meeting (IPM) on March 1, 2022.

The IPM brings together top-level production professionals from around the globe each year to discuss the key issues and challenges across the worldwide live event production sector.

The 15th edition will see a revamped, reprogrammed IPM that will be bigger than ever, including a second programming tranche by the Event Safety & Security Summit (E3S).  Topics slated for discussion include Brexit, Covid, staff, infrastructure, transport and the future of power and energy sources.

IPM will also host the final part of a three-event international discussion around the supply chain crisis facing the live event industry, run in partnership with Eurosonic in the Netherlands and Production Live! In the US.

Following these debates, IPM will publish a standalone report titled 'The Live Event Supply Chain 2022'.

IPM Agenda Head Carl A H Martin said: "After 20 months out, the live event production community now faces significant challenges on the long road to recovery ahead. This significant increase in the size of IPM's programme and delegate numbers will aid the community in properly tackling these issues head on."

IPM benefits from close connection with leading production managers from across the world, providing vital input, supplementing IPM's own programming committee.

What began 15 years ago as a focused roundtable meeting between invited production professionals, now encompasses towards 400 of the world's top production managers, sound and lighting engineers, venue personnel, suppliers and promoters' representatives. Delegates attend from over 35 countries, as far afield as Australia, Africa, the Middle East and USA.

All of this ensures that debate throughout the day is up-to-the-minute, with the most progressive discussions on issues affecting live event production.
