Announcing PLASA Focus: Nashville 2012

NEW YORK, NY – PLASA Events is pleased to announce its second regional event in North America, PLASA Focus: Nashville 2012, to be held July 11-12, 2012 at the Municipal Auditorium, in Nashville, TN.

Nashville is the latest event to be launched under the PLASA Focus banner, and follows the popular PLASA Focus: Austin, to be held February 22-23 in Texas. The show will run prior to the annual Summer NAMM event, bringing together industry professionals from around the world.

Modelled after PLASA Focus: Leeds (UK), which topped 2000 visitors and broke previous attendance records in its third year, the PLASA Focus series of events in North America will bring regional entertainment technology communities together to do business and network in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Each two-day PLASA Focus show is free to registered visitors, and a unique inclusive hard wall booth package—including furniture, power, material handling allowance and lighting—levels the playing field to give exhibitors a simple and affordable exhibiting experience. A strong regional focus will attract visitors who do not usually travel long distances to national industry events. Likewise, visitors will have an opportunity to experience and interact firsthand with industry-leading equipment and services without having to travel far from home.

PLASA members receive substantially discounted exhibit space at all PLASA Focus events and further discounts for exhibiting at multiple events.
