NATEAC Registration Begins June 15

Stage Directions • Industry News • June 2, 2021

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

The Conference registration fee is $145. Bill Sapsis, Conference Director commented that, “Virtual events like NATEAC are considerably more challenging to organize 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 centers, theatres and other live event venues. 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.
