A number of pro audio businesses have hailed this year’s PLASA Focus Leeds as “brilliant” and “unique” as it celebrated its 10 anniversary this week.
Held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds from May 1-2, the annual event provided a wide ranging mix of exhibitions, workshops, seminars and educational sessions.
An array of live audio solutions were on show across the two days, including Sennheiser’s Wireless G4 System, the EMS-41 ultra-compact loudspeaker from EM Acoustics, the Wavefront Precision line array series from Martin Audio, the V Line MPLS from Logic Systems Pro, the LD Systems MAUI P900 column speaker from Adam Hall Group, the IQ EVO loudspeaker range from Inspired Audio, and the JMIX8 two-way array speaker from RCF.
Inesh Patel from Sennheiser commented: “PLASA Focus Leeds is brilliant – it has been non-stop, so much so that my voice is going from talking too much! The event is valuable as we get in front of the right people, meeting key end users and important dealers.”
First time exhibitor, Glyn Harries from Audio Visual Materials, added: “We just had to be here. We knew it would be good for us as we offer something unique. The quality and footfall was great. We networked with other suppliers and met lots of new and current customers.”
Meanwhile, John Kaukis from Adam Hall Group, said: “PLASA Focus Leeds has really helped us develop our brand and raise our profile. We’ve had loads of leads from install companies, followed closely by retail and MI. Overall, it has been a great show.”
PLASA’s commercial director, Christopher Toulmin, concluded: “After a decade of bringing the industry together, PLASA Focus Leeds once again confirmed its status as a key gathering place for all of those who have a stake in the industry. We are elated to hear only positive things from exhibitors and visitors which has propelled us to jump right into preparing for PLASA London’s 41 show in September.”
