PRG XL Video would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to everyone who visited us at the ABTT Theatre Show this year at London’s Alexandra Palace. Taking place over two days in early June, the UK’s only annual trade show dedicated to the theatre industry was well attended over the two days.
Peter Marshall, Director of Theatre for PRG XL in the UK, places a very high value on our participation at the ABTT Theatre Show, and was delighted at the high level of attendance and positive air at this year’s chapter of the event: “The main focus for us at the ABTT Theatre Show is to welcome friends and colleagues from across the industry to our stand and enjoy a chat and catch-up over a drink. During both days, there was a steady flow of people, including Lighting Designers, Production Managers, Theatre Technicians, Programmers and students. One of the main aims of PRG XL is to build and maintain excellent relationships with our industry connections, the ABTT Theatre Show is a perfect opportunity to help us achieve that.”
The lighting design for our stand was done by John Harris, who leaned towards a design which utilised innovative products developed by, and available exclusively through PRG—including the Icon Beam and Icon Edge moving lights, as well as a V276 lighting control console. Additional stand lighting was achieved with GLP X4S LED wash lights and Colorblaze 72 LED battens. We were kindly supported by Cover it Up, who provided the drapes.
“Moving the show to Alexandra Palace has been a huge success,” quotes the ABTT’s Roger Fox, Show Director. “Despite the recent terrorist attacks and upcoming General Election, the live performance and theatre community came out in greater numbers than ever to support the show. Once again, the exhibition floor was completely sold out and a noticeable observation this year is that time that visitors spend at the show is also increasing. This is testament to commitment shown by PRG XL and many other exhibitors with the offer they bring to the marketplace.”
We look forward to exhibiting at the ABTT Theatre Show in 2018, when the show will return for its fourth year at the Alexandra Palace. Exhibition dates will be announced by the ABTT in due course.
