The Music Industries Association of Canada (MIAC) has announced the preliminary details for the 12th annual PAL Show. This year’s show will take place September 8-9, 2013, at the International Centre in Toronto, and exhibits will feature the latest in recording, live sound, broadcast, contracting, video, and lighting products and services.

Both days of the show will feature a broad range of educational seminars as well as networking events, industry approved training programs, show specials, and live demonstrations.

“We are extremely excited about The PAL Show 2013,” says Dale Kroke, Senior Vice President and General Manager, B&J Music Ltd. (a KMC Music company) and Chairman of the Board of Directors, MIAC. “Our recent membership survey generated a lot of great feedback about what both exhibitors and attendees are looking for in a show and we are working hard to make this our best yet. Working with our new show management partner, Matrix North Events, and with Norris-Whitney Communications [publisher of Professional Sound, Professional Lighting & Production, and other entertainment industry publications] handling seminars, marketing, and social events, we are going to be focused and in touch with what members want like never before.”

Adds Dave Dysart, President of HHB Communications Canada, about the PAL experience: “The show attracts a good cross section of people, from MI buyers and store staff to qualified end users in the recording, live sound, install, and broadcast markets. It's also a great chance to catch up with other suppliers in the Canadian industry. We expect to see some very positive changes at the 2013 show, as the association has hired some of the best people in the industry in the show management and marketing and promotional areas.”

Howard Ungerleider, Principal, Production Design International and the lighting designer for major acts like Rush, Van Halen, and Rod Stewart, says: “I think, over the years, the progression of this event and the dedication of the people that are running it have been spectacular. That dedication is elevating the quality of the show to the next level. Canadians are getting a chance to see what they would normally have to travel outside of the country to see.”
