30% Increase in Visitor Registrations for PLASA 2011

London, Feb 8 — PLASA announced that more than 6500 visitors have confirmed their attendance for PLASA 2011, London’s entertainment and installation technology trade show scheduled for 11-14 September in Earl’s Court. The announcement came one month after registration opened on 1 January 2011.

Organisers PLASA Events say the numbers are 30% ahead of the same time last year, and put the registration surge down to the quality of the products launched at the event with Events Manager Sophie Atkinson commenting: “The PLASA Show is a favourite place for companies to launch ground breaking innovations to an international market. There’s a real opportunity for companies to make a big splash and our exhibitors are taking full advantage of that.”

She added: “The past few years at the PLASA Show have seen the industry’s standout audio, lighting, video and stage technology products receive their international débuts. From the high profile mixing console launches of 2008 and 2009 to the advance of ever more sophisticated line array technology, networking protocols and signal processing in audio, PLASA has witnessed some impressive firsts. In lighting, we’ve seen the ongoing convergence of lighting and video, new-generation lighting consoles and the latest fixtures and modular LED set elements. From the world’s first LED screens to the newest in lightweight mesh-style tourable displays, PLASA is the place to see it.”

The high interest in attending has been matched by an increase in stand bookings ensuring that the PLASA Show remains the place where event and installation technologies come together, serving every professional end user in every setting, from small theatres, to retail environments to the grandest arena shows: “And that’s the secret of The PLASA Show,” adds Atkinson: “it gives people a chance to see what’s going on in every sector surrounding their own: they share expertise, get ideas and formulate best practice. It’s what all great exhibitions are about.”
