PLASA To Host Multiple LDI Events

01 LDI APLASA wants to let its members know about of several events taking place on Thursday, Nov. 20 as part of the LDI Show. These include the Business Education Session, Roundtable Discussion, and Behind the Scenes Happy Hour at the Westgate Las Vegas (formerly the Las Vegas Hotel).

“Turning Chaos Into Order: Five Approaches to Project Management” will take place from 12:00-2:00 p.m., and will explore how project management fits into your career, development and management. Moderated by Tom Stimson of Stimson Group, LLC., panelists will include Philip Barrett of Level 2 Design, Mark Fink of Barbizon, Tim Hansen of Oasis Stage Werks, Jules Lauve of Theatre Projects Consultants and Evan Williams of Riverview Systems. The panelists will discuss the definitions of project management and how each has made a career out of turning chaos into order. If you aspire to follow their path or simply want to elevate your company’s approach to this skill set, you won’t want to miss this session. Registration is $50 for PLASA Members, $80 for non-PLASA Members. Registration is available online at, where members and non-members will need to login to their account, then click on Register for Events.

After the session, all PLASA members are invited to attend a Roundtable Discussion with PLASA CEO Matthew Griffiths from 2:30-4:30 p.m.. The discussion and feedback session will include networking with fellow members, a discussion of the issues facing members’ businesses, the opportunity to provide feedback to PLASA CEO Matthew Griffiths about benefits, and conversations about how PLASA can better serve members.

From 6:00-8:00 p.m., PLASA hosts the Behind the Scenes Happy Hour to benefit the Behind the Scenes charity. In popular tradition, the event will be held the evening before the LDI show. Tickets are $50 per person and are available online at or during LDI registration.
