NATEAC registration begins 15 June

USA – Registration for the North American Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (NATEAC) will open on 15 June, 2021. NATEAC 2021, a virtual conference, will take place on 20, 21 and 22 July, 2021.

“After a year of experiencing and producing virtual conferences and events,” noted conference operations manager Frances Thompson, “we have put together an informative and entertaining event. The presenters are excited about the opportunity to reach an audience that might not be able to attend in person.” The three-day conference will feature 12 sessions, including the Keynote Address which will be given by Jennifer Mallard. Other session topics include: Three Ceilings – Megastructures after 20 years, This Old House – a look at the technology upgrades at Boston Symphony Hall and Design for All Genders – Inclusive Design for Practitioners and Patrons.

The Conference registration fee is $145.00. Bill Sapsis, conference director commented: “Virtual events like NATEAC are considerably more challenging to organise than one might expect. The NATEAC production team has done a tremendous job putting this conference together.”

NATEAC is a quadrennial event offering valuable information and insights into the design process for performing arts centres, theatres and other live event venues. The inaugural NATEAC took place in 2008 at PACE University in Lower Manhattan. NATEAC 2020 was initially postponed to 2021 and then, as COVID-19 continued into the Winter/Spring, was converted to a virtual event. Many thanks to our sponsors for making NATEAC possible.
