PPL launch competition in celebration of headline sponsorship of The Facilities Show. Music licensing company PPL has announced their sponsorship of the 2010 Facilities Show, and a competition to win £500 worth of vouchers for The 02 and their partner music venues across the country.

Music licensing company PPL has announced their sponsorship of the 2010 Facilities Show, and a competition to win £500 worth of vouchers for The 02 and their partner music venues across the country.
PPL has become involved for the first time with the Facilities Show, sponsoring the online registration, the Facilities Show Bar area and VIP lounge, throughout the 3 day show in Birmingham. Staff from PPL will be on hand in both the bar, and at the entrance points, during the show to answer questions on the ease, cost and legalities of music licensing.
With research* showing that over 70% of employees want music in the workplace and 85% claiming that music makes the workplace a happier environment**, it is crucial that facilities managers and directors are aware of the legal requirements, correct procedures and benefits for playing music at work.

Other research findings include:

1 in 3
employees are less likely to take time off sick if music is played in the workplace

55% are less self conscious talking to other colleagues or clients when music is played

74% enjoy going to work more when good music is played

"We are thrilled to be involved with The Facilities Show," said Christine Geissmar, Head of Public Performance Operations at PPL. "We hope this is a partnership that will continue to grow year on year. By having a presence at the Facilities Show, we will reach out to those key decision makers to educate them about PPL and the critical role we can play in creating a good working environment, motivating staff and increasing productivity."
A licence from PPL is a legal requirement and can cost from as little as 18 pence per day. It is a cost effective way of ensuring a successful and productive office, factory or warehouse environment. PPL is the UK based music licensing company, offering a convenient and efficient one-stop solution for businesses that play recorded music in public.
To promote the new partnership with The Facilities Show, PPL has launched a competition to win £500 worth of vouchers. These are redeemable at all 02 music venues across the country including London, Birmingham and Glasgow.

The competition is open to all those registering for the Facilities Show which can be done for free, online, at:

* Music Works
** These findings come from MusicWorks; a joint body of research carried out by PPL and PRS for Music demonstrating the value of music to businesses. More information about the MusicWorks study can be found at
