A.C. Lighting North 2008 Tradeshow Expands to 40% Bigger Hall

8th January 2008

Building on the success of last year's A.C. Lighting North Tradeshow, which saw attendance levels up by 30%, the 2008 show takes place in a new exhibition hall with 40% more space to provide an increased exhibitor line-up and visitor capacity.

The event takes place on 29th and 30th April in the Saviles hall at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, which is adjacent to the original location and now the city's largest exhibition venue.

As well as accommodating the show's expansion plans, the improved facilities also enable the organisers to provide the main exhibition, complementary theatre seminars programme and buffet lunch with a bar and dining area all within the same hall.

The A.C. North Show has become an essential industry event for buyers in the Midlands, the North of England and Scotland, providing these regions with a definitive showcase of today's entertainment technology market.

Full show details will be confirmed in the coming months, but visitors can expect the same popular format, including exclusive 1st UK showings of new products, the latest innovations from over 70 leading brands, one to one demonstrations and technical advice, and some exclusive 'show-only' exhibitor deals.

Visitors will again have a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes on, and discuss the production of, some of the most innovative entertainment projects with today's leading industry experts in this year's free guest speaker seminars programme.

Exhibitors will include an even wider range of theatre, concert, film and TV lighting, audio, rigging and associated equipment suppliers from A.C. Lighting's one stop shop of leading entertainment technology brands, and representation from many of the key industry associations and publications.

Show admission is free for registered industry visitors and includes entry to the seminars and free buffet lunch. Pre-register to guarantee your admission by calling A.C. Lighting Ltd on 0113 255 7666 or go online to

A.C. North 2008 will be the last trade show organised under that name by A.C. Lighting. Immediately after its close, PLASA Events will take over the management and ownership of the event and will look to build on the strong regional platform established by A.C. Lighting.
