Next Big Thing 2012
Thursday night saw the launch of the Events Industry's version of Britain's Got Talent The Next Big Thing 2011 at RCOG
. The event will be run in association with Sternberg Clarke as well as media partners Event Magazine; this year's final will be held at CONFEX 2012 which runs from the 6th to the 8th of March at Excel London.
With a tough judging panel of Events Industry experts that includes Event Magazine editor Jeremy King and our own Director Adam Sternberg; acts are going to have to pull something truly spectacular out of the bag to be in with a chance this year.
We'll have more details on how to enter shortly but any aspiring acts out there who feel like 2012 could be their year should start practicing their best tricks/songs/routines for the opening stages of the competition.
To announce this year's competition; Jeremy introduced previous winner Mickey Fordola who took to the stage to show what it takes to win a competition like NBT. Mickey performed his usual mix of Rat Pack classics and reimagined modern tunes with his trademark style and charm in front of a packed crowd at RCOG.
We'll have more of Next Big Thing 2012 on the blog soon so keep an eye out for updates on what's sure to be one of the highlights of the Event Industry Calendar.
