Legendary Audio Companies Confirm Stands at PLASA 2010
Following hot on the heels of a surge of other audio companies that have committed over the last few weeks, Bose has returned to the PLASA show after an absence of several years.
The legendary brand joins leading audio companies including DiGiCo, KV2, Polar Audio, Sennheiser, Roland, Allen & Heath, OHM UK, Shure, Trantec, AXYS, Midas, Harman and many others who have already booked for the 2010 show.
Simon Holley, Bose Professional Systems divisional manager, says: "We feel that the time is right to demonstrate our positive commitment to the pro audio market. We have some exciting new products in the developmental stage, so this year is all about establishing new contacts and building on existing relationships to create a strong foundation from which to move forward. We are delighted to join so many strong brands at what should be a tremendous show."
Joining Bose are other new additions to the show floor, Tannoy & JoeCo. Having had a presence on Red Square Audio's stand in 2009, Tannoy has maximised its presence by booking a stand in its own right at the 2010 show.
Mark Flanagan, Communications Manager for Tannoy, commented: "As a UK manufacturer, PLASA is always a key point on our calendar as our 'home event', and we're delighted to have consolidated our presence at this year's show. Exhibiting alongside our sister brands Lab.gruppen, Lake and TC Electronic - under the TC Group International umbrella - we're looking forward to engaging directly with our customers, showcasing our successful VQ and V Series lines next to Lab.gruppen's acclaimed power amplifier and powered loudspeaker management systems...it makes perfect sense for us."
JoeCo exhibited for the first time in 2009, and its presence led to it winning a prestigious PLASA09 Award for Innovation for its BlackBox Recorder. Now JoeCo is set to release the new digital version of the BlackBox recorder and, with a host of appearances all over the international festival circuit coming up, the company has moved from the Springboard Pavilion (formerly The Small Business Pavilion) to a larger stand at 1-J16 in Earls Court 1. The company can be seen near other brands including existing exhibitors Adam Hall and Nexo, plus Electro-Voice, who itself returns to the show after a one year absence.
Joe Bull, Managing Director of JoeCo, comments: "Being able to debut our Live Multitrack BlackBox Recorder in the Pavilion last year was ideal, as it allowed us to dip our toe in the water and try PLASA out for the first time. Now we're building on the success of the 2009 show and look forward to welcoming all our existing and potential customers onto our new stand."
Bose can be found on stand 1-G32, amidst other companies such as Yamaha, Electro-Voice, Nexo and Adamson.
