After a rather successful show last year, SpeedQuizzing is once again showcasing its fantastic software at BPM 2015 at the NEC in Birmingham.
BPM is a show aimed at DJs and electronic music production run over the course of 3 days in September each year. Taking up 3 halls, the event is huge and DJs / producers / music enthusiasts from all over the country come every year to see what new products are on offer and what deals they can get their hands on.
As SpeedQuizzing is a perfect mid-week earner for DJs, we decided last year to set up a stand to show off what it could do. Last year we gave out hundreds of free t-shirts to people who came along to give the quiz a go and won one of the many sessions we put on. On the back of this after the event we had lots of people signing up to the software to give it a go in a local venue to them.
Here is what SpeedQuizzing co-creator Alan Leach had to say about BPM.
Alan Leach Interview
What drew you to BPM last year?
It was an obvious choice. Although a large portion of attendees are bedroom/wannabe club DJs who have 9 to 5 jobs in offices etc, there are some cool guys who DJ to make a living 7 days a a week, those guys appreciate that if you want to earn money Sunday to Thursday that you need to broaden your horizons.
How do you think SpeedQuizzing works well with DJs?
Is it cooler to be be a shop assistant 5 days a week who dabbles in DJing on a weekend, or a DJ who dabbles in quizzes during the week. SpeedQuizzing can help you be a DJ full-time.
How do you think the promotion went at BPM last year?
Really well, it was hard work sometimes trying to demonstrate a quiz system amongst all the mayhem, but we pulled it off.
Are you going to do anything differently this year and if so what?
Yes we are in a quieter area of the arena this time (if the organisers are to be believed) where we won’t be competing so much with DJ battles and step-sequencer demonstrations etc.
If you are heading down to BPM 2015 yourself come and find our stand for a chat. If you’re not currently signed up to SpeedQuizzing then we will be able to give you a live demo of it in action. We will also be live tweeting and instagramming from the NEC too. Keep yourselves posted on our social media pages.
BPM 2015 is on from the 12th September to 14th September at the NEC in Birmingham.
