Installation editor Paddy Baker will chair a panel session at next month’s PLASA show on Monday 18 September.
In keeping with the trade show’s 40th anniversary, the seminar ‘Installations – You’ve Come A Long Way Baby’ will look at how key installation technologies have evolved over the past 40 years.
The panel comprises Nevil Bound from AV integrators Feltech, Peter Ed from lighting manufacturer Light Emissions, Peter James of audio manufacturer Shure and events consultant Venue Strategies’ Sam Wise.
“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.
The expert panel will look at a number of installation scenarios, describe how they were approached back in the day and compare and contrast with today’s kit and methods. They will also look at how these technological developments have changed the way that integrators work.
“As well as being interesting and informative, I believe that the session will give installation professionals a better appreciation for how their predecessors approached projects, and a greater understanding of how today’s technologies have built on what has gone before. Having only been involved with this industry for a mere ten years myself, I’m sure I’m going to learn a lot!”
The seminar takes place in the Audio and AV Theatre from 14:45 to 15:45 on Monday 18 September. Register here.
