Show manager Sophie Atkinson said: “The show continues to grow in popularity and we are pleased to be able to introduce a number of new developments this year. 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 and Prolight+Sound. The show continues to improve, but we are being very careful to keep the friendly and informal spirit that people expect from PLASA Focus; this is a very sociable event and we’re looking forward to a great show.”
