PLASA announces additions to its seminar line-up

Trade show PLASA is heading to London Olympia from September 17-19, with new additions to its seminar line-up focusing on the AV and lighting sectors.

The free-to-attend seminar programme will also appeal to those wanting to refine their social media presence and boost productivity with cutting-edge apps.

Two sessions that have the AV market firmly in mind will take place in the Audio & AV Theatre: ‘Where does audio stand within today’s corporate environment?’, chaired by AV Magazine’s editor Clive Couldwell; and ‘Installations – you’ve come a long way, baby’, chaired by Paddy Baker, editor of Installation International magazine.

“I’m very much looking forward to chairing this session,” said Baker. “I’ve assembled a panel of experts with over 120 years of collective experience and who are still strongly involved in the industry today. Using their knowledge and experience, we’ll explore how the technologies involved in different types of installation have evolved over 40 years.”

This year marks 40 years of PLASA, which forms the focus for several seminars. Two sessions that tie in with the 40-year theme will take place in the Lighting, Staging, Rigging theatre, both of which are being hosted by the Association of Lighting Designers (ALD).

‘Forty Years of Lighting Design’ looks back over the last 40 years of lighting design in the UK, considering how the role of the lighting designer and the practice of lighting design have changed in that time. ‘Forty years of in-house lighting departments’ will look at changes and developments over the past four decades in in-house lighting departments at venues across the UK.

Discussing the benefits of digital technology, the Fast Track Theatre will host two sessions from Liz Hardwick, co-founder of Digital Training and SEO company, DigiEnable: ‘Conversations not Broadcast: build better relationships with clients/customers on social media’ and ‘Boost your productivity with processes and apps’
