Plasa Focus Leeds returns to celebrate its 10th anniversary at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds on May 1-2. 

Free registration is now open for the show, with more than 130 international brands exhibiting their latest products to a UK audience. 

Regular PSNEurope contributor Phil Ward will explore the advanced challenges of spatial and immersive audio in a panel discussion. Joining him are a panel of manufacturers and sound designers including Tom Slater from Call & Response and Scott Willsallen, an award-winning expert in sound design for major international events. They will explore how this emerging sector impacts system design and workflow for engineers and production professionals working in concert touring and live sound.

Back by popular demand is a seminar on Technical Standards for Places of Entertainment presented by Robin Townley from the Association of British Theatre Technicians. A number of these standards, which are recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), have been amended since PLASA Focus Leeds 2017. This vital session will guide attendees through the changes, review the importance of rehearsing control of risks in the production environment, and answer questions regarding safety and compliance.

PLASA Focus Leeds is free to attend on 1-2 May at the Royal Armouries, Leeds. Find out more and register at:
