AC Lighting North trade show


Recommended Posts

It's almost time for the AC North trade show - this seems to have become a bit of a fixture on the trade show calendar now, and it's about all we get north of Watford so more power to AC's elbow for setting it up.


Anyone from the Blue Room making the journey to Leeds? I'll probably be there on the Tuesday ...

I don't know Leeds at all but if anyone does and can suggest a relevant place, I'd be happy to make it an official Blue Room meet.



Dear All,


Knowing Leeds and the venue quite well….There is a café/bar to the left as you walk in the Armouries (opposite the entrance to the AC North Trade Show)

Quite quiet usually and plenty of room......


On another note……we have received more registrations than ever before for this years show…..Please do not hesitate to contact me off forum if you want to reserve a seat at any of the seminars.
