Temperature rises for PLASA Focus: Leeds 2010

Next year's PLASA Focus, which takes place at The Royal Armouries in Leeds on Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 April 2010, promises to deliver a really strong follow-up to this year's launch event.

The exhibition is close to being sold out, with only a handful of stands remaining, a testament to exhibitors responding to its innovative format and location which attracts buyers who don't attend other trade shows, creates a level playing field for all exhibitors, keeps the event affordable for everybody and means that the visitors get to see more new products and meet more companies.

The member rate for a stand is just £1025, which includes a 6sq.m shell scheme, electricity and furniture - in fact every detail is taken care of, we even provide you and your staff with free lunches and a free party!

Members who exhibited at the launch event earlier this year have nothing but praise for PLASA Focus:

Ashley Lewis of Clay Paky: "We knew this show was going to be good - quite a number of us had spoken about it and we were all correct. As soon as the doors were open it was busy; it's been busy all day and it's been quality people."

Tim Chapman of Lab Gruppen: The first three people I met at the show this morning were customers of ours who I'd never had the opportunity of meeting before. A regional show like this means you uncover more of your regional end users. So we're very pleased."

Exhibiting also buys you more than just stand space and you are invited to get involved in whichever way you choose: if you want to take part in the Education and Learning Programme, deliver training or have any other ideas about how we can help to create business opportunities for you then please get in touch.
