PLASA Show celebrates strength of live sector

by Joe Gallop

PLASA Show, London’s international event for entertainment technology, has opened its doors at Olympia London to celebrate the live industry’s “strength and innovation” following the pandemic.

Thousands of professionals from across the sector are expected to attend the show from 4-6 September, with more than 200 global brands in Olympia’s Grand Hall representing audio, lighting, audio-visual, rigging and staging technologies.

A conference programme, sponsored by Vectorworks, will run alongside the show floor, with back-to-back sessions in three seminar theatres. Programme highlights include designing Ed Sheeran’s world tour, lighting BMW’s HQ, powering the Commonwealth Games and live events in the metaverse.

A new feature for this year is the Vintage Audio Display, featuring the exact PA system used for Pink Floyd’s ‘Live in Pompeii’.

The Innovation Awards, in association with LSi magazine will also run at the Show, celebrating the most impressive products from the past year.

PLASA event manager Sophie Atkinson said, “Not only has the floor plan and programme grown in size since last year, there is a genuine sense of excitement throughout the industry that live events and entertainment are back – and more ambitious than ever. This truly is the year to see what’s new and expand your industry contacts.”
