North American Theatre Engineering & Architecture Conference Postponed Until 2021

The North American Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (NATEAC) has been postponed.

"The continuing COVID-19 crisis, and the time we all will need to recover from it, make it unimaginable to hold NATEAC this coming summer," says Conference Director Bill Sapsis. "In order to provide a safe environment in which to meet, and ensure a worthwhile and exciting experience for the presenters and attendees, NATEAC will be postponed for one year.

NATEAC will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel, NYC on July 18 & 19, 2021.

"We hope to bring many of the excellent presentations that were set for this July forward to 2021.  However, the current crisis, and our response to it, may alter what we think is important next summer," Sapsis adds.

Sapsis also said that they also hope to keep the Harbor Cruise, Conference Dinner and Cocktail Party on the same schedule and in the same location as before.  Vendor discussions are ongoing and more information will be provided as it becomes available.
