PLASA Puts Dealers at the Heart of New Regional Trade Show Series

NEW YORK, NY - PLASA Events have announced an unprecedented new deal for member dealers. Over the coming days, PLASA member dealers are being given the opportunity to book a strictly limited number of discounted booths at PLASA Focus: Stamford 2012. The all-inclusive booths, which are being offered on a first-come-first-served basis, are available for the heavily discounted rate of $2500, which represents a huge 57% reduction on the standard rate.

PLASA's new regional trade show model, first seen in Austin and Nashville, and making its way to Stamford on November 12 & 13, 2012, has been designed to bring manufacturers, regional dealers and end users together in a way that has never before been possible.

"PLASA believes that dealers play a vitally important role in the progression of the industry as a whole and should be represented and supported alongside manufacturers, at any PLASA Event" comments PLASA's CEO, Matthew Griffiths.

The all-inclusive, pre-built booths provide a uniform show floor, a level playing field for all exhibitors, and a hassle-free, relaxed exhibiting experience. As the only trade event to limit booth size, PLASA Focus places the onus on an affordable and friendly environment, which all stakeholders in the industry can use to network, build relationships and grow their businesses.

The offer is open to any PLASA member dealer that can demonstrate a regional customer base in New York and the tri-state area, and is open to regional production companies also. The current exhibitor list is growing fast with confirmed exhibitors; Coolux, Elation, Rosco, BMI Supply, acouStaCorp, Barbizon, Limelight Productions, ALPS, Ultratec, Drape Kings, iWeiss, Lyntec, Navigator Systems, Production Advantage, Robert Juliat, CAST, and High End, with many more applications still being processed.

Each two-day PLASA Focus show is free to attend for registered visitors. There will be plenty of opportunity to engage with peers and meet new people, including a free two-day Professional Development Program, which is created by the industry's leading names. Dealers & production houses who are interested in exhibiting at the above rate should contact PLASA Events without delay.
