Chris Schmidt, Vice President and General Manager of Stage Rigging, comments, “When I started my career in rigging little did I know that by working for Stage Rigging, one of the first to focus only on arena rigging, I had access to the some of the industry’s most respected and innovative professionals to bounce ideas and ask some of the most basic questions. The New World Rigging Symposium is the perfect place for both seasoned riggers and those interested in rigging to do the same. This is a great place to network and have access to the rigging industry’s top talent. And please... Don’t be afraid to ask!”
