London (September 28, 2006)–The Prize Stage at the PLASA06 After Show Bar attracted crowds at Earls Court 1’s central bar on the Sunday and Tuesday evening of PLASA06, proving to be a success as attendees were drawn to a drawing. Specifically, the Prize Stage was sponsored by nine of the industry’s major players and on both evenings, the main event was a £1000 prize draw. The two lucky winners were Gary Sales and Alex McEwan.
On hand for the big drawing were (l-r): Guy Lewis, Jack Kelly and Terry Clarke (partially hidden), from XTA, Tomas Mittermann from Lab Gruppen, David Webster from DiGiCo holding mic, Paul Robson from Medialease, prize winner Alex McEwan, Rob Robinson from Stardraw, Peter Stressing from Mobil Tech.”The prospect of winning £1000 was an enticing proposition to make me go and look at all the participating company’s products,” said McEwan. “This is the second year running I’ve been to the PLASA Show, and the Prize Stage was certainly a very welcome added bonus. I’ve worked freelance for quite some time and have now set up a production company based in the Birmingham area, so I’m going to use the money to buy more equipment.”
“It’s great to know that the concept for the After Show Bar has worked exactly as we wanted it to,” adds mastermind of the event, DiGiCo’s David Webster. “I think it’s been a great marketing tool for those involved and undoubtedly extremely useful for Alex!”
Participating companies in the drawing were: Aviom, Avolites, DiGiCo, Lab.gruppen, Medialease, Meyer Sound, Mobil Tech, Stardraw, XTA Electronics
