PLASA Focus Leeds returns to connect entertainment tech professionals

PLASA Focus Leeds is gearing up for another successful year at the Royal Armouries from May 14-15, 2024, and you can now register for your free entry badge.

Attracting over 2,000 visitors, the popular regional event is known for connecting professionals with lead names in the entertainment technology industry across two friendly days of networking and discovery.

Boasting a fully booked show floor, PLASA Focus Leeds will feature 150+ brands in pro audio, AV, lighting, rigging, and staging. Attendees will have the chance to closely examine new products and engage in face-to-face discussions with potential suppliers.

The entire span of live entertainment technology

Lighting professionals can look forward to meeting Ambersphere, Avolites, ChamSys, CHAUVET Professional, Entedi, ETC, GLP UK, Prolight, Robe UK, TMB, and Vari-Lite.

Top quality pro audio is also on offer from Audio-Technica, Bose Professional, d&b audiotechnik, EM Acoustics, Funktion One, JBL Professional, KV2 Audio, Martin Audio, NEXO, Shure UK and Wharfedale Pro.

Heavyweights in rigging will also be in attendance, such as Alustage, Area Four Industries, ChainMaster, Doughty Engineering, Rigging Services, Rope and Rigging, Triple E, and UK Rigging.

Not only that, cutting edge AV can be seen at the stands of Epson, LANG UK, PSCo Group, Riedel Communications, and ROE Visual. And innovative staging will be on show courtesy of Absolute Casing, APT-GB, Drapemakers, Harlequin Floors, J&C Joel, and NSP Cases.

A programme to inform and inspire

The highly-rated programme, sponsored by Vectorworks, will run throughout the show, packed with sessions to help visitors advance their careers and navigate the industry. With last year's programme featuring sessions on sustainability, lighting and sound design, and careers in rigging, this year’s programme is set to be equally enlightening.

PLASA Focus Leeds also offers a variety of interactive experiences, including hands-on product training and powerful audio demonstrations. These opportunities are ideal for both seasoned professionals looking to enhance their skills and newcomers seeking an introduction to professional products. Further details about the 2024 program will be unveiled in the upcoming weeks.

PLASA’s Head of Events, Sophie Atkinson, comments, “The past year has been remarkable for the live sector, marked by events such as Eurovision and the Coronation. And where better to celebrate these achievements than at one of the industry’s favourite shows? Leeds is renowned for its friendly atmosphere, so whether you’re an old-hand or a new-starter, you’ll be warmly welcomed to the show.”

PLASA Focus Leeds will take place from 14-15 May at Royal Armouries. Register free at
