The 42nd outing of The ABTT Theatre Show at Alexandra Palace has now been postponed to June 2021, plans are underway for constant and ongoing behind the scenes support with the hope of a collaborative coming together when the time is right. We know we are not alone and the ABTT will work tirelessly to unite our entire technical community with as many live performance disciplines as possible to consider how to rebuild, how best to create new opportunities and how to play our part in getting theatre back on its feet.

General Information

The ABTT Theatre Show is an annual trade show hosted in London and organised by registered charity, the Association of British Theatre Technicians. The ABTT Theatre show draws exhibitors and visitors from all over the world interested in topics such as lighting, audio visual, scenography, rigging, set construction, technical theatre and related technologies.

It has been developed by the ABTT to be relevant across theatre, TV, Film and commercial work. So a broad range of technical disciplines are covered, being relevant to venue operators, production staff, theatre consultants and students addressing issues of Health and Safety, Codes of Practice, Live Performance, Academic Development and other relevant matters.

The ABTT Theatre Show was last presented on the 5th and 6th June 2019, where the new exhibition layout and comprehensive programme of events saw a 13% increase in attendance on 2018.
