As part of a rolling programme of seminars and workshops led by experienced experts, the new additions will equip attendees with creative branding advice and problem-solving solutions. Not only that, PLASA offers the opportunity to delve into the latest electrical and wiring regulations which come into force from January 2019.

An intensive workshop on branding, communications and strategy will be delivered on 21 November at Leisuretec’s premises in Leighton Buzzard. Led by PR guru Lauren Rogers of Burnt Orange who has worked with major international music and sporting events such as the Big Chill Festival and the FIFA Club World Cup Abu Dhabi, delegates will go beyond simple marketing by exploring the importance of unique branding and how to differentiate in an authentic way. This workshop will be beneficial for businesses of all types and sizes with the shared goal and wanting to stand out from the increasingly saturated marketplace.

The latest updates to the 18th edition Wiring Regulations come from chartered engineering consultant and industry expert, James Eade in a seminar and workshop on 22 November at Blackout’s premises in London. James has authored IET guidance on temporary electrical systems and represents the industry on the British Standards Committee for IET Wiring Regulations. Designed for manufacturers, distributors, venue owners and end-users, this technical day will help delegates understand their legal obligations of ensuring electrical safety in the workplace, be that on a factory floor or festival field.

A dynamic workshop guaranteed to shake up the way problems are tackled will be presented by the Ideas Centre COO, Caroline Russell on 14 February 2019 at Stage Electrics’ premises in Bristol. With an arsenal of out-of-the-box approaches, Caroline will challenge traditional thinking that traps delegates in a world of “more of the same”. Starting out as an analytical chemist in the sports anti-doping industry, Caroline made the move into operational and project management sharing the power of creative problem-solving. This workshop is relevant to all those who are stuck in a rut or whose leadership has become stale.
