Registration is open for the 2020 New World Rigging Symposium

Jeanette Farmer to be Keynote Speaker

Registration is now open for the 2020 New World Rigging Symposium taking place March 31 – April 1st in Houston, TX in conjunction with the USITT Conference and Stage Expo. The event provides an opportunity for riggers and those interested in the entertainment rigging industry to network, discuss current issues and new technologies, and help shape the future of the industry. A complete schedule, session descriptions and a link to register are available on the ESTA website.

Over the two days participants will be given a range of opportunities to further their technical knowledge in sessions covering video wall rigging, automation and motorization, and tension grids. They’ll keep up to date with codes and standards, have some of their most pressing questions answered by structural engineers, and learn about rigging for cinema and performer flying.

Jeanette Farmer will deliver the Keynote Address to open the Symposium. Her career spans more than three decades of professional theatre technical support, show production, concert/theatre lighting design, theatre design consulting, and themed entertainment project management.
