Now in its second year at the Ricoh Arena Coventry, the IOV's Annual Convention & Trade Exhibition (IOV2009) will be held on 14th & 15th October. IOV2009 will once again provide an opportunity for its exhibitors to showcase and sell the latest video technology and supplies. It will also host a compelling range of seminars, IOV award-winning film screenings and other social events for those from all avenues of professional video production.

The IOV Convention also has a growing following amongst photographers, educators, filmmakers and independent producers. With literally hundreds of manufacturers being represented, visitors can see, try and buy all the latest professional video technology. From simple cables and connectors, through to entire production studios - or even a year's worth of tape and media stock! Regular visitors make the IOV Convention their main purchasing event and exhibitors respond by providing many special exhibition offers.

The seminar programme, spanning the two days, is geared towards the professional and ranges from creative "How to" type presentations through to sessions on expanding your business and profitability.
