“PLASA is distressed to hear on social media, reports of misconduct at the PLASA show, specifically inappropriate contact, at what was otherwise hailed as a hugely successful show.

“We’d like to thank those who came forward to highlight this issue – we understand how difficult this can be.

“PLASA will review policy for both exhibitors and visitors for any of our events, as well as support mechanisms for those victimised by inappropriate behaviour.
