Check out what attendees to previous PLASA Focus events have to say;
This show had an entirely different feel than any I've attended in the past. Rather than a mix of small and huge booths dotting the show floor, the PLASA Focus event evened the playing field by providing a selection of 8 x 10 ft booth spaces. By the first hour of the event, I was impressed and glad we attended.
The show was busy and opportunities to present products and discuss lighting solutions abounded during the two days. All in all I would consider the new format style of the PLASA Focus exhibition a definite success.
I made a point of asking every visitor if they attend other shows and 85% to 90% of them I would not have met, had I not been here.
It's nice that everyone is on a level playing field in regards to booth size because it allows everyone to present their products in the best light possible.
We're trying to develop our regional rental market and this regional show is perfect for us.
This is glorious! It's really nice to have conversations with people.
It's been very busy and we're very, very happy.
It's been fun since the day we got here! The set up was real easy, there's a great crowd, a lot of interesting people. I just got back from a session - that was really fun.
It's a fun, cozy event. I've met a lot of really interesting people, it's been great!
"it's interesting to see because this has been the first one and it's a new concept, I'm glad to see so many people have showed up."
Excellent Seminar Program. Excellent atmosphere on the show floor - now my favorite show for meeting and talking to suppliers.
A great opportunity to speak to exhibitors in more detail. The smaller booths keep it more informal and it gave me a better chance to see the products.
The relaxed atmosphere makes it a much more beneficial environment. The smaller booths and quieter setting allows better networking and purchasing discussions to take place.
Well located, well laid out, useful, friendly, and relevant. Keep up the good work.
I enjoyed the experience and the far more relaxed, less hectic atmosphere. The whole show was a much more pleasant experience for me.
It is so great to have a regional event, a good show, and a credit to the industry and PLASA.
Loads of helpful professionals that answered any question put to them. I particularly enjoyed the seminars I attended.
The regional show was excellent. The chance to have an in-depth look at the products was so refreshing.
I achieved all that I planned from my visits and more. In particular, I was most impressed by the seminar program. I hope that PLASA Focus continues for times to come.
We really enjoyed it! It was very useful to see products in real life rather than just on websites. Great to chat to vendors and discover the little details about products.
Thanks for the regional location; if it wasn't nearby I wouldn't be able to bring the students!
