Judges’ comments

As ever a lot of people made a big effort and the Theatre Show looks stunning as a result, especially with the new layout giving a more open view of the hall on entry. One of the criteria for judging the Stand of the Year Award is that it clearly shows what the exhibitor does. Theatreplan is a new arrival at the ABTT show. They have a well laid out stand that clearly shows their creative process, with a soft, welcoming and intimate feel, inviting those who enter to engage with the consultancy’s global work. The Sydney Opera House variable acoustic reflector on display is a particularly striking and fun feature.
