PLASA Exhibitors Label Show 'Great Success'

With preliminary visitor figures of over 12,000 and strong international engagement, organizers are delighted with the positive feedback to this year's PLASA 2011.

Visitors relished being first to get their hands on some of the industry's hottest new products. Over 500 products were launched at the show. PLASA 2011 also delivered an enhanced visitor experience, with many new interactive features drawing substantial crowds, including the STLD's LED luminaire shootout, the expanded Theatres Trust Ecovenue feature, and the new PLASA Production Bar in Earls Court 2.

The second PLASA Rigging Conference was attended by 175 delegates from 18 countries, some traveling from as far as Malaysia, Singapore, Sweden, Canada, the United States, Hong Kong, and Australia. More than 70 rigging professionals also turned out for the informal Riggers' Forum on Sunday afternoon.
