InfoComm to host PLASA live events training12 August 2011
InfoComm International has said that it will continue its programme of support for the UK’s AV rental-and-staging community when it hosts a range of education sessions at this year’s PLASA show next month.
The sessions will take place at London’s Earl’s Court on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 September. They will be led by Andre LeJeune, CTS, InfoComm’s rental & staging staff instructor, who has more than 30 years’ experience of staging and presentation and has been responsible for many large-scale productions for corporate clients around the world.
Topics covered will include ‘Lighting for Video in the Large Meeting Environment’, ‘Audio Techniques for Corporate AV Events’, and ‘Project Management for Stage Labour’. Each session will last 90 minutes and will earn attendees 1.5 RUs (Renewal Units) towards continued InfoComm CTS certification. All sessions are free to attend.
“While much of the focus of PLASA is on theatre and entertainment, our education sessions throw the spotlight on the equally creative – and lucrative – world of corporate meetings, launches, and similar events,” said Chris Lavelle, InfoComm regional manager, UK & Ireland (pictured). “Following feedback from our members, each course has been crafted to give it a distinctly European focus and flavour, and this, combined with Andre’s vast global hands-on experience in this market, gives our PLASA education a unique appeal.”
As in previous years, InfoComm will also have its own stand at PLASA, providing a convenient meeting-point for members and non-members alike to socialise, network and exchange ideas. The stand’s location in Hall 2 (Stand 2-Q30) is the same as in 2010.
“The PLASA show always brings us closer to the UK’s live-events community,” concluded Lavelle, “and we are looking forward to an educational, businesslike, and entertaining four days at Earl’s Court next month.”
