The Association of British Theatre Technicians’ Theatre Show, 14th-15th June 2006, Royal Horticultural Halls, London, will present a comprehensive range of products and services for arts professionals involved with equipping, refurbishing, or upgrading their drama studio, theatre, auditorium, or multi-purpose performance space. An aim of ABTT Theatre Show is to de-mystify the art of performance technology and offer practical advice from leading suppliers about the enormous value that can be added by investing in technology.

The ABTT Theatre Show embraces a developing range of technologies to offer to its expanding visitor base, which includes technicians, technical managers, heads of drama departments, architects, consultants, designers, building services and facility managers. Experience the latest low-cost solutions in powered hoisting and flying affordable by venues of any scale. See sophisticated operational track and drape systems that augment the multi-functionality of any space.

“As the ABTT Theatre Show approaches its third decade, we’ve seen a expansion in the range of visitors to the show,” comments show director Roger Fox. “Another rise in our visitors is from Local Authorities aiming to source product to augment the multi-functionality of their spaces, proving that the show has moved beyond the limits of the West End Theatre community. The show offers a unique educational platform to experience technical solutions that are a vital and integral component to all contemporary public performance venues.”

Featured exhibits include integrated video solutions in action and the latest in lighting and lighting control systems that are designed for non-technical users. Almost a 100 companies will be exhibiting, covering the whole theatrical spectrum.
