CAD Tutorial Session

16-Sep-2018
Lighting & Industry Initiatives Theatre
Lighting , Rigging, Production, Structures

AutoCAD is used throughout the theatre and live performance industries in many ways. This session will show you the latest version of the software - AutoCAD 2019 and highlight some of the tools that have been added over recent years that practitioners in our fields may find particularly useful. There will also be a discussion on the ways and means of owning AutoCAD (all legal of course) as well as the options for industry specific training on the software. Finally, if you are having trouble wrangling particular drawings, do bring them along on a laptop and we’ll see if we can get them to behave a bit better for you.

Testimonials

  • It was a really impressive show. Every time I looked there were lots of conversations going on around the show floor. I think every exhibitor should be happy. It was magic!

  • We rate PLASA as one of the best shows in the world. We’ve had a really successful event, meeting our European clients and securing new overseas contacts as well as visitors from closer to home.

  • The show was incredibly busy, I didn’t have a moment of quiet time. I’ve seen more international visitors here this year which is great. I love it!

  • We’ve been exhibiting at PLASA for around 10 years and show both competing and complementary technologies, allowing our customers to see the differences between them. No one feels they’re getting the hard sell, it works very well.

  • We were delighted that 80% of our European distribution network came to the show, and we had visitors from Korea, Hong Kong and the US. The stand was really busy and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the show.

  • This year’s PLASA show was one of the busiest ever, and in my opinion, it was also one of the best we’ve exhibited at. All in all, it was a very positive show for us and our suppliers.

  • The show was genuinely good and there was a buzz. We certainly had a crowded stand and we hope the successful launching of new products brings the results we want. May PLASA continue for many more years.

  • I am a big fan of PLASA London since the move and believe that the PLASA team have totally re-invigorated the show and established it as the product show in the UK, where the UK market turn to look at new products.
