For lighting professionals, there are sessions on CRI and LED with Robe, technology and design with the ALPD and sustainable lighting rigs with White Light, while audio professionals can attend sessions on spatial audio with Outboard TiMax and Sonosphere, sound quality with Solotech, SSE Audio and KV2 Audio, creative technology with the ASDP, good sound with the University of Derby and sports arena sound systems with NEXO.

Sophie Atkinson, Head of Events for PLASA, said, “this year’s PLASA Focus Leeds is in a really strong position, with brands and organisations from all walks of the industry coming together to share their technological offerings and their expertise and ideas.

"We say it every year, but there really is something for everyone at the show this year—the programme is bigger than ever and there are plenty of new names to say hello to. Not to mention, the new and improved courtyard which is always a popular spot to mingle and relax. I hope you’ll join us, along with the spring sunshine!”
