PLASA Focus Leeds returns with a sold-out show floor
PLASA Focus Leeds, the popular show for industry networking and product debuts, is back for 2019 taking place at the Royal Armouries Museum from 14-15 May. Free registration is now open for visitors who want to explore the many facets of live entertainment technology.
With the show floor selling out, 120 brands – representing each sector of the industry – will span across two halls. Many of which will use the show as a UK launch pad for new products, fresh from debuts at the international shows. Visitors can expect to see lighting giants such as Elation, Robe and Philips alongside audio masters such as d&b audiotechnik, Funktion-One and Shure. Additionally, there will be plenty of rigging, staging and production specialists with Area Four Industries, Gerriets, Hawthorn and J&C Joel.
The wide range of exhibitors guarantees the show’s appeal to professionals working across live events, concert touring, production, performing arts and installation. Furthermore, the show welcomes several new exhibitors for 2019 including Wharfdale Pro Audio, known for their powerful loudspeakers and Cambridge Sound Management from the USA, offering bespoke sound masking solutions.
In addition to the show floor there will be a full programme of seminars, panel discussions and workshops. Experts who worked on some of the most exciting projects over the last year will discuss their creative and technical processes. Meanwhile, there will be need-to-know technical guidance, ensuring the free programme is rich with professional development offerings.
Sophie Atkinson, PLASA’s Head of Events comments, “PLASA Focus Leeds continues to be one of the most anticipated events in the calendar; it’s the perfect place for people to get together, share knowledge and find out about the latest technology.
“Our team is currently building an exciting programme of seminars and workshops, celebrating some of the most exciting projects from across the industry - we look forward to announcing the line-up in the coming weeks”

The show has been amazing for us with a continual flow of some very interesting customers. The reception from everyone has been absolutely amazing.
We’ve met a lot of familiar faces at what we consider the most sociable show of the year, as well as many of the future’s lighting designers and programmers.
It’s been a great show due to the family feel which the show is known for. It’s just the right size and the fact it’s spread over two halls makes it feel more spacious and relaxed.
With smaller stands at PLASA Focus Leeds you can get close to all sorts of people. As a result, we have been fantastically busy.
PLASA Focus Leeds is a great show because it’s so close knit. We come here every year to socialise, catch up and do some business with our suppliers, customers and industry colleagues.
PLASA Focus Leeds is always such an enjoyable show. This year’s we hit the mark and we look forward to the next occasion to connect with our UK customers.
Leeds is my favourite UK show, yet this is the first time we have exhibited with a stand facing the main entrance – it’s been brilliant!
