The North American Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (NATEAC) closed with rave reviews from attendees and panelists alike.
Over 250 people from nine countries attended the
New York City event. Keynote addresses were given
by Richard Brett and Hugh Hardy, and the Plenary
Session was led by Steven Ehrenberg and David
Taylor. Ron Austin, executive director of the
Lincoln Center Development Project, showed his
intimate understanding of the vagaries of the
industry at the conference dinner at Sardi's
and left the audience in hysterics.
Bill Sapsis, conference director, noted, "The conference
exceeded my wildest expectations. It ran smoothly and we accomplished
our main objective...communication."
