BPM DJ School to Nurture New Talent
Displaying its commitment to inspiring and nurturing the next generation of DJ, BPM will team up with top industry brand to host a BPM DJ School at the 2015 Toytopia toy show, which takes place at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool later this month.
Running from 24-26 October, Toytopia is an interactive toy show for children and adults, featuring well-known brands and a number of features for young people to get involved in. Bringing a unique feature of its own to Toytopia, BPM will work alongside renowned DJ industry names to build the first ever BPM DJ School, with ADJ, Focusrite, Pioneer DJ and retailer DJ Kit each contributing their latest products and unrivalled industry knowledge.
Aiming to educate and inspire future DJs through interactive learning, the DJ School will be decked out with cutting-edge tech (courtesy of Pioneer DJ, Focusrite and DJKit), giving young visitors the chance to get hands-on with the equipment as brand representatives teach them some basic DJ skills! Lighting brand ADJ will also play a key part in creating the BPM DJ School, using its latest innovative lighting effects to generate an atmospheric space in which visitors can get imaginative on the decks.
The idea of educational outreach is also a key element of BPM’s annual event at the NEC, which combines engaging content and interactive learning, hosting educational talks and hands-on workshops, as well as a performance space that gives aspiring DJs the chance to play to big crowds.
“The BPM DJ School at Toytopia is a unique extension of our commitment to inspiring the next generation of young DJs,” explained Sara Walker, PR and Marketing Manager for BPM. “Whether they’re already DJing and striving to fulfil their ambitions, or they’re interested but not sure how to get started, we want to show youngsters just how fun and rewarding DJing can be – and we’ve got some of the industry’s biggest brands on board to help us do it.”
As well as letting Toytopia visitors get hands-on with the latest DJing equipment, the DJ School will be running a free prize draw, giving all visitors a chance to win a cutting-edge DDJ-WeGO3 controller! Perfect for beginners, this Pioneer DJ controller offers an intuitive layout and pulse-control lights to guide users seamlessly through their first performance.
Following its successful 2015 outing and what looks to be an inspirational appearance at Toytopia, BPM will return in 2016 at the NEC Birmingham, celebrating ten years as it continues to nurture the next generation of DJs and producers.
