Plasa Focus expands evening and content offerings in Leeds
posted on: 13/4/2011 09:25:20

The organiser of Plasa Focus in Leeds has announced a range of new exhibitors and features for this year’s event along with two evening events.

Plasa Focus is the sister event to the Plasa entertainment technology show at Earls Court and runs at The Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds from 19 to 20 April. This year’s event will feature 130 exhibitors including 21 first-timers, as well as double the number of seminars including product demonstrations.
 
The new evening events are the inaugural AES in the North meeting, which will run at the University of Leeds on 19 April and represents an expansion of the AES studio group in London. ‘Backstage Academy’ short learning courses will also be launched by LS-Live during its evening event. LS-Live will also be revealing its Apple Authorised Training Suite and plans for a foundation degree in Live Events Production. Visitors to Plasa Focus can register free for transport and entry to the event.

Private meetings are also available for the first time at Plasa Focus using three private conference rooms.

“The show continues to grow in popularity and we are pleased to be able to introduce a number of new developments this year,” Plasa Events show manager Sophie Atkinson said. “As well as over 20 seminars and a diverse range of exhibitors, we have the UK debut of dozens of new products fresh from international launches at ISE & ProLight+Sound.

“But we are being very careful to keep the friendly and informal spirit that people expect from PLASA Focus.”

Plasa Events recently signed an agreement to support the Australian Entech 2011 exhibition in Sydney in June as part of plans to grow its internationalstanding.
