PLASA Events Announces the Cancellation of PLASA Focus: Austin
in September 2014 and Return to Orlando, February 17-18, 2015

PLASA Events has announced the cancellation of PLASA Focus: Austin 2014, scheduled for September 9-10. The show, returning to Austin for the third time in three years, was experiencing location saturation. Even with the prior success in Austin, it was clear the Events team would not be able to deliver the high quality experience exhibitors and attendees have come to expect from this celebrated series.

However, the PLASA Focus 2015 show series will hit the sunshine state once again, bringing the world's latest entertainment technology to Orlando on Tuesday, February 17th and Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 at the Rosen Plaza Hotel.

Companies already signed up to exhibit at PLASA Focus: Orlando 2015 include: The Light Source, GLP, Ushio, Altman Lighting, Chauvet Professional, TMB, Barbizon, Elation Professional, Harrington Hoist, Group One, Ultratec, A.C.T Lighting, and many others.

As always, attendance to the show and the highly acclaimed Professional Development Program is free. The show will play host to Florida's most talented production professionals and features game-changing technology, world-class speakers, live product demos, and valuable networking opportunities unique to the PLASA Focus regional series.

The PLASA Focus: Orlando website and registration will be open soon at
