PLASA Show proves its staying power as it returns to London

PLASA Show proves its staying power as it returns to London
Still buzzing from last year’s 40th anniversary, PLASA Show returns to London Olympia on 16-18 September, providing a stage for the world of entertainment technology. The show continues to explore the cutting edge of innovation and creativity and brings the biggest brands to thousands of avid visitors. 

Audio heavyweights L-Acoustics, Peavey and Adamson, and lighting pioneers DTS, ETC and Philips are among the 200+ brands exhibiting at the show. And, with last year’s show floor selling out, extra stands have been released for smaller companies representing all sectors of the industry, from DJ and club, to worship and education.  

The show provides invaluable opportunities for those with an interest in working with lighting consoles and loudspeaker systems by providing dedicated training sessions and demos. There will also be more ‘hands-on’ experiences than ever before where visitors can sharpen their skills on the latest products guided by expert brand representatives.

New features include a show-floor seminar theatre that will serve as an epicentre for production specialists and riggers looking to elevate their knowledge. This is in addition to the lighting, pro audio and AV, and Fast Track theatres on the Gallery, delivering continuous next-level content throughout the show. 

The Gallery will be thriving with unique areas including an enhanced bar area, a PLASA Members Zone, and a photography display of the Lightpower Collection which shines a light on live rock ‘n’ roll performance. 

PLASA’s internationally recognised Awards will be presented to the most forward-thinking inventions during a special event on the Monday evening of the show, with all entries available to view throughout the show at the Innovation Gallery. Last year’s winners included Claypaky, City Theatrical, Eaton – Zero 88, Shure, Elation, Drop and Stage Smarts. 

Chris Toulmin, PLASA’s Commercial Director says, “we are proud to be building on four decades of experience, gathering the industry together and offering an array of opportunity and insight. We look forward to welcoming hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors in September and are confident that PLASA Show is still the leading event for the live entertainment industry.”

Registration for the show is open now which takes place on 16-18 September at London Olympia.
