Triple E\'s ModTruss stages land at PLASA London

UK Triple E's ModTruss is being deployed as the 'universal building system' for the Theatres Trust stage, the Technical Theatre Awards/USITT stand and the Technical Theatre Awards stage at PLASA this year.

Triple E launched ModTruss – best described as full size Meccano – in the UK market at the ABTT Theatre Show in June 2015. It was immediately recognised as 'Engineering Product of the Year' at the ABTT Awards.

ModTruss was Triple E's most ambitious launch since the company was formed in 1984. The product is set to revolutionise theatre staging, set building, stage machinery, construction and event markets.

"We're very excited that visitors to PLASA London will be able to experience ModTruss," says Triple E's managing director, David Edelstein. "The feedback at ABTT was overwhelmingly positive, not only from the wider industry but also from the ABTT Awards judges. Since then, ModTruss has continued to gain momentum in the UK market and we're thrilled to be working with the Technical Theatre Awards, USITT and the Theatres Trust for the show."

Technical Theatre Awards organiser Ian Taylor comments: "We're delighted to have Triple E supporting the Awards again this year and are especially excited that we get to create both our PLASA stand and Awards Ceremony stage from ModTruss. The flexibility and infinite options available with this product make it a joy to use and create with, perfect for a group of techies like us with wild imaginations. We will be sharing our stand at PLASA with USITT this year so we welcome everyone to come say hello and take a look at what Triple E has created for us."

The Technical Theatre Awards stand is D70, USITT is on D71. The Sunborn Yacht is moored just outside ExCel and will host the Technical Theatre Awards ceremony on Monday 5 October from 8pm.
