Nashville Turns Up The Volume!

NEW YORK, NY - PLASA Focus: Nashville 2012 welcomes a raft of new exhibitors as the two-day event continues to grow, with over 20 companies now committed to taking part and as many applications being processed. The event takes place July 11-12, at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, TN, and is the first of its kind to be held in the region.

Confirmed exhibitors include: Barbizon, IATSE, Seachanger, Hive/Interspace, Show Sage, Ultratec, LynTec, Nicolaudie America Inc., Thern Stage Equipment, Coolux, Doug Fleenor Design, Chauvet, Robe, High End Systems, White Light, Creative Stage Lighting, Mainstage Theatrical Supply, Martin Professional and TMB.

PLASA Focus' much talked about 'new style' event brings new products out to regional areas, providing free networking and learning opportunities for regional entertainment-tech communities. Those involved will also have the unique opportunity to mix with a wider audience as PLASA Focus: Nashville overlaps with the annual Summer NAMM event, taking place July 12-14, 2012 at the Nashville Convention Center.

The unique hassle-free booth system provides a new level playing field for exhibitors, and is attracting interest from first time exhibitors, including regional production companies and distributors, as well as manufacturers and rental companies. This wide scope will attract a broad cross-section of the entertainment technology community in Tennessee and the neighboring states, from students and end users to consultants, buyers and freelancers.

For visitors, there will be plenty of opportunity to engage with peers and meet new people, including a free two-day education and learning program created by the industry's leading names. Visitors should register online today to be the first to receive major new announcements in the weeks ahead.
