    Fabio Fila (IT)

    President of STEA , Member of the Board Doc Servizi

    My career path has been nothing short of amazing. I started as a musician playing drums and bass like most teenagers do. FUN! In 1997 I went from behind the glass to in front of the glass when I became a video and audio technician. This is when my show business life really began. From there I moved on to being a live entertainment production manager which allowed me to learn organisational skills in an entertainment environment. All of these moments and work paths joined together and gave my the possibility to start work with the largest Italian entertainment co-op known as DOC SERVIZI in 2007. I am now head of health and safety office “Doc Crew”. From there I oversee 2,500 employees regarding light design, sound engineering, rigging, scaffolding and production managers etc… In 2018 I founded STEA (Safety Theatre Entertainment Art), an innovative start up. Our aim is to create the first Italian network formed by safety & security experts for the entertainment industry.

    Peter Heath (UK)

    Managing Director - PLASA

    I spent nearly 20 years with Japanese manufacturer Roland, I worked in a number of roles before becoming Sales Director in 2009 for Roland (UK)Ltd. Having spent several years working in music product I moved to Professional audio and video in 2007 finishing my career with Roland as Head of Pro AV for Europe. I joined PLASA as Managing Director in 2016 and have been focused on rebuilding the association. The last 3 years have seen a return to growth, stability and opportunity. During the late 1970’s and early 80’s I was a musician. We built our own PA and lighting effects and I worked in a studio before building my own. For some strange reason I got a ‘proper job’ within real estate….but soon found a way to get out!! Needless to say I’m very happy with what I do and the journey that has accompanied me during the last 30 years.
