PLASA Focus, Leeds is one of the essential events for professionals working in live audio, lighting, AV, rigging and staging.
The show’s programme is bound to be packed with a variety of technical workshops, seminars and product demonstrations!

The ABTT will of course be attending at Stand R-E05, so we look forward to seeing you there!

ABTT Technical Standards Update: Wednesday 15th May 14:00 -15:00
Technical Standards for Places of Entertainment

Technical Standards for Places of Entertainment  is recognised by the HSE as forming part of a Code of Practice for the Theatre Industry and as an Established Standard under their Enforcement Management Model. There have been a number of online amendments to the Technical Standards since last year’s PLASA Focus Leeds. This session  will provide a guide to the amendments and offer the opportunity for a safety and compliance surgery to discuss your questions. In particular there will be a review of the importance of record keeping with respect to both Show and FOH Reports: to be able to demonstrate that something didn’t happen requires establishing a culture of accurate and timely reporting.
