Los Angeles California/Boston Massachusetts – The Creative Pro Group Network have announced that the London SuperMeet will return to the Great Hall at the Kensington Conference and Event Centre in London, England on Friday, 28 June, 2013. This SuperMeet follows the blinding success of the Las Vegas SuperMeet held this past April during NAB Show 2013. Sponsors for the London SuperMeet are currently lining up for what is expected to be another highly anticipated sold out event.

“We are excited to announce that Oscar winning film editor Tom Rolf has agreed to be our featured guest,” says Michael Horton, co-producer of the SuperMeet and founder of the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group.

Tom Rolf is perhaps best known for editing Martin Scorsese’s TAXI DRIVER (for which he received a British Film Academy nomination). He was awarded an Academy Award for Best Film Editing for Philip Kaufman’s THE RIGHT STUFF. In addition to ACE Eddie nominations for THE HORSE WHISPERER and THE RIGHT STUFF, Rolf also received the ACE Eddie Award in 1984 for his work on WARGAMES and a Career Achievement Award from ACE.

“Tom is one of cinema’s legendary film editors and we are very fortunate to have him on the SuperMeet stage,” adds Daniel Berube. “This will be a rare opportunity for those that attend the SuperMeet to get up close and personal with Tom, as there will be plenty of time to ask questions.”

The final agenda will not be announced until shortly before the event date, however there will be USER driven presentations from Blackmagic Design, Red Giant Software and Adobe. Plus much more.

Rounding out the evening will be the always crazy and wild “World Famous Raffle” where dozens of lucky people will go home with thousands of Pounds worth of valuable software and hardware.

Doors to the SuperMeet will open at about 17:00 with the SuperMeet Digital Showcase, featuring 15 software and hardware developers. Here, attendees can enjoy a few cocktails, mingle and party with industry peers, network one on one with leading manufacturers and learn about the latest trends in collaborative editing workflows for post production and broadcast markets. SuperMeet stage presentations will begin at 19:00.

“This will be our third SuperMeet in London and certainly not our last either, as we move forward to distance ourselves from trade shows and further build our global community with unique offerings,” explains Berube. “We have brilliant support in the UK from the creative community and we expect another fantastic turnout.”

It is expected the London SuperMeet will sell out as historically SuperMeets always sell out. Tickets are on sale now for £15.00 (GBP) each plus ticket fee. Students and Teachers with a valid student or teacher ID can purchase tickets for £10.00 (GBP) each.
