PLASA Focus Glasgow - What You Need To Know
PLASA Focus Glasgow - The SECC in Glasgow.
For a number of months we've talked about the inaugural visit to Scotland for the PLASA Focus event.  There's already a very successful PLASA Focus Leeds each year and the organisation has decided to take the exhibition on the road again when they head to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow (2-3 December 2014). 

  The National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) will be flying the flag for the organisation and it's something we do at all of the PLASA events that we are invited to.  We will be utilising the help of our NADJ Scotland branch representatives/members and our Chairman, Alan Marshall, is travelling from one side of the UK to the other.  The exhibition is FREE to attend and you just need to register in advance for your passes: PLASA Focus Glasgow Free Registration

  Not all DJs are aware of PLASA and what they do and it just so happens that the organisers have put together a little fact-file for you to get a better idea of what's in store: 

  • Q) What can you expect at PLASA Focus Glasgow?
  • A) A very strong selection of exhibitors, including lighting manufacturers, AV and audio professionals.
  • You will also be able to join in the free to attend Professional Development Programme seminar sessions from the likes of Avolites, d&b, Sennheiser, Vectorworks and Total Solutions. As well as hearing from Andy Loveday and Guy Vellacot about the technical issues in delivering the opening and closing ceremonies at this year’s Commonwealth Games.  Plus, you can network with your peers at the show floor bar.
The National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) At PLASA Focus Glasgow 2014

Our preparations for PLASA Focus in Glasgow on the 2nd-3rd December 2014 are well under way.  We've got some great support from the team at our NADJ Scotland? branch who are helping man the National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) stand at the SECC.
  This is the first time that PLASA? has taken their show on the road to Scotland and it follows in the footsteps of the extremely popular PLASA Focus Leeds events - the next one being from the 12th-13th May 2015: www.plasafocus.com/leeds/
  The NADJ Chairman, Alan Marshall, along some of our Scottish members will be on stand E22 and we'd love to see you attend this event.
  To help give you a flavour of what you could expect to see at PLASA Focus Glasgow, have a look at the video and check out the Robe lighting demonstration.
  We look forward to seeing our existing members and also meeting more DJs from Scotland (and beyond).  For more information on the exhibition and to register for your FREE tickets, please head to: www.plasafocus.com/glasgow/
Don't Take Any Chances With Your Membership Subscriptions Or Your DJ Business
Don't Take Any Chances With Your Membership Subscriptions Or Your DJ Business
Following a recent phone call from a DJ, we'd like to highlight that if you let your membership subscriptions to the National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) lapse, we cannot backdate your membership to the original expiry date (or any other date for that matter).  DJs who let their subscriptions lapse lose all benefits of membership (including Public Liability Insurance, Employers Liability Insurance, web hosting and the copies of Pro Mobile magazine) when their subscriptions come to an end and they have not renewed. 

  We received a call from an anonymous number asking if a DJ who let their subscriptions to the Association lapse could have it backdated.  We can't be sure why someone would ask for their membership to be backdated but it we felt it was a very unusual request and it warranted an update to our members.  We asked why they wanted it backdated and they said that it was because they'd forgotten to renew. 

  This phone call also follows an update from one of the companies that offers members of the NADJ a discount on their PAT testing.  The owner of that company said that a DJ, who was NOT a member of the NADJ, had contacted him to carry out PAT testing on his DJ/disco equipment and the appointment was ready to be booked in, until the DJ asked if the testing could be backdated as there had been an incident at a recent event and a guest had contacted him for his insurance details.

Do You Still Buy The 'Now That's What I Call Music' (NOW) Releases? Let Us Know!
Do You Still Buy The 'Now That's What I Call Music' (NOW) Releases?

The latest incarnation from the long running compilation series from Sony Music/Universal Music Operations Limited is out on Monday 24th November 2014.  We are, of course, talking about the 'Now That's What I Call Music' or NOW series of CDs that got the nickname of being the 'DJ Bible' of albums.  The latest one being NOW 89.

  Once over the NOW albums formed a vital part of a DJ's music collection, but with the advent of instant access to songs via legitimate digital music providers, including DJ Only suppliers such as MastermixCD Pool and DMC, do DJs still buy the releases?  Or is it easier to use a subscription based service from a DJ Only music supplier and then top up on new releases as they come out?

  Well, we like to encourage a bit of interaction with DJs, so head over to the NADJ Facebook Page and tell us if you keep buying the NOW albums or if you now use other legitimate sources of music to keep your collection up to date?  Are you a DJ who still likes to keep their NOW collection going and find that you have all or most of the songs on the release, but you still get it to keep that collection going?  Are you using CDs and will continue to buy the albums on that format?
