UK - The 12th edition of PLASA Focus Leeds will open its doors from 10-11 May at the Royal Armouries Museum, bringing live entertainment technology to the north of England and reconnecting industry professionals from across the live events sector.
More than 150 brands from the audio, AV, lighting, rigging and staging sectors will showcase their technologies – including never-before-seen products - and promote their services across two show halls. Also returning is the free seminar programme, which will run throughout both days.
PLASA MD, Peter Heath, comments: “We are so delighted to see the return of PLASA Focus Leeds after two long years away. I’m sure there will be a huge buzz across the two show halls, with much catching up to do. And the programme will see industry leaders share strategies and solutions for the 2022 landscape of live events and entertainment. I invite you to explore the full scope of the show and I personally hope it delivers everything you are looking for.”
Lighting professionals can look forward to reconnecting with leading brands including Artistic Licence, Astera, Avolites, Ayrton, ETC, Chauvet Professional, GLP, Robe, Strand and Vari-Lite.
Meanwhile, pro audio enthusiasts can find a range of new solutions from the likes of Adam Hall, Audio-Technica, BishopSound, Bose Professional, d&b audiotechnik, EM Acoustics, FBT, Funktion-One, Martin Audio, Peavey, Sennheiser, Shure, Sound Technology, RCF, Nexo and Yamaha.

Seminar programme highlights
Held throughout the show, the seminar programme will bring a host of sessions dedicated to the industry’s creative achievements as well as business guidance and technical legislation advice.
Programme sponsors Vectorworks will run a technical session on each day: Schematic and Rack layout design in Vectorworks ConnectCAD and Previsualisation with Vectorworks Spotlight utilising GDTF and MVR Export. Visitors can also take advantage of free training from ChamSys and live demos from KV2 and GLP.
