Live sound engineer Dave Swallow and Sennheiser’s Alan Marsh are among those scheduled to present seminars at the 2011 PLASA Show, which takes place at Earls Court in September.
Events in the 2011 Education and Learning Programme will cover the full gamut of AV technology. An audio-oriented perspective on the relationship with video will be given by the Institute of Sound and Communication Engineers, while acclaimed live sound engineer Dave Swallow will deliver his acclaimed two-part talk, ‘The Art of Mixing a Show’.
Elsewhere, Sennheiser business development specialist and BEIRG Pro User Group member Alan March will provide a far-reaching update on the spectrum issue.
Other likely highlights include a discussion on AVB and the role of its promoting organisation, the AVnu Alliance; a presentation by the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Stage Electrics on the theatre’s recent renovation project in Stratford upon Avon; a WiSE (Women in Stage Entertainment) seminar on new models for working and how these can be embraced by the industry; and a PLASA panel on BS 8901 and sustainability management systems for events.

Sophie Atkinson, PLASA events manager, commented: “The PLASA 2011 Education and Learning Programme brings industry issues and projects to life, and helps to bring emerging technology and ideas to the professionals whose technical, creative and production skills will help to realise the diversity of projects and productions. With more special interest and case study sessions yet to be announced, PLASA 2011 offers a rich world of opportunities for industry professionals at every level.”
