Aimed at bringing together audio and lighting experts working in the live events sector at a regional level, the upcoming PLASA Focus show at the SECC in Glasgow is a chance to meet representatives from industry leading companies to seek out the latest products and services as well as a premier networking opportunity.
Event Director, James Ashwood, comments: “There’s a strong selection of lighting and audio companies at the Glasgow show including Robe, Avolites, Ambersphere, White Light, Black Light, Chauvet and Sennhieser along with key dealers such as TMB, LMC, Warehouse Sound, Apex acoustics, HD Pro, FBT and Polar Audio and rigging, trussing and special effects companies. Add to that the free to attend two-day seminar program and the rigging conference – PLASA Focus Glasgow looks set to be a great couple of days.”
PLASA will also yet again host the renowned Professional Development Programme, which will deliver two days of presentations, technical demonstrations and panel discussions all designed to help visitors build their industry knowledge and improve their skill set.
Recently confirmed presentations include Andy Loveday – Technical Manager, Systems and Guy Vellacott – Manager of XL Video, who were part of the technical team responsible for the delivery of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 20th Commonwealth Games which took place in Glasgow earlier in the year.
Also confirmed is veteran live sound engineer Justin Grealy, Avolites, Total Training, FOH Sound Engineer Jon Burton and for the first time we are joined by Sennheiser’s Simon Beasley.

The SECC will also host the PLASA Riggers Forum, running alongside the Glasgow Focus. The Forum is aimed squarely at working riggers who rarely have an opportunity to discuss their opinions outside of the workplace and is a great opportunity for the Scottish rigging community to meet and network.
Forum Manager Chris Higgs said: “The Forum will present an update on the NRC, observations about rigging for aerial performance and discuss the availability of rigging training in Scotland. We’ll be looking at what’s available, what people think should be available, the quality of training, how it relates to the NRC and more.”
The Forum is free to attend and starts at 2pm on the 2nd December.
PLASA Focus Glasgow takes place on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd December 2014 at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow. Access to the show is Free of charge – to pre-register, click here.
