PLASA 2011 will switch to a paying registration site on Tuesday 10 May, giving visitors one last chance to avoid the £20 ticket price and register for free online.

The show is now over 85% sold - almost five months ahead of its four-day run at Earls Court from September 11-14. Confidence that PLASA 2011 will be a busy event is confirmed by the increase in visitor registrations, with 8500 visitors representing a healthy 5% increase on the same period last year. This is matched by a 14% increase in the number of companies confirmed to take part.

PLASA 2011 Event Manager Sophie Atkinson comments "The PLASA Show has a unique reputation for launching ground breaking products. The Show embraces everything from theatre, live music, film/TV and special events to night venues, architectural installations and construction projects. It's a true reflection of a highly diverse industry operating at an international level-the connecting thread coming from the creative use of emerging technologies, which are constantly opening up new opportunities. PLASA 2011 will bring emerging technology to the people whose technical, creative and production skills help realize a staggering diversity of projects and productions - it will be a very exciting place to be"

All PLASA 2011 visitors can register for free until May 10 by visiting
