Strong Scottish Support for 3rd Edition of PLASA Focus Glasgow

The events and festivals sector is a major contributor to the Scottish economy – both locally and internationally and this year Scotland has taken steps to invest in the future of the industry with the unveiling last month of a ten-year collaborative strategy to significantly grow this £3.5 billion industry.
The result of an 18-month consultation process involving the Scottish Government, VisitScotland, Scottish Tourism Alliance and over 100 active participants from the public, private and third sector, 'Scotland - The Perfect Stage’ aims to help the sector develop and deliver world-class events.
The new strategy aligns perfectly with PLASA’s own, which offers big businesses and smaller enterprises the chance to exhibit in a cost effective manner and in a face-to-face environment ideal for generating business. Director of PLASA’s Events Division Christopher Toulmin comments, “The Glasgow Focus show gives manufacturers, dealers and distributors the chance to showcase innovative technology in a region which is rich in cultural and international events.”
Last year the PLASA show received an overwhelming level of positive feedback from exhibitors and visitors alike. Overall the event grew by 26%, highlighting the continuing potential for business opportunities in the region. Toulmin continues, “The investment in Scotland's venues, facilities and infrastructure for sustainable events highlights a demand for innovative solutions for use in live events, concerts, tours, theatre productions, venue installations and leisure attractions.”

The two-day free-to-attend exhibition is a platform for showcasing the latest technology used in live events, concerts, tours, theatre productions, venue installations and leisure attractions. The show registration is now open and more information about the event can be found at  If you are interested in being part of the show you can contact the PLASA Team at:, or call us on +44 (0)20 3818 7650
