"It is the mission of the North American Theater Engineering and Architecture Conference (NATEAC) to promote communication between the architects, engineers, consultants, and manufacturers responsible for designing and building new theaters and renovating existing facilities in North America. It is also our goal to promote a higher level of interaction between these professionals and the end users of their facilities."
The requirements of performance spaces are more complex than ever before. With the meteoric rise of digital technology and the ever expanding diversity of these facilities, there is an increasing need for those responsible for these spaces - the architects, engineers, consultants, manufacturers and end users - to have an opportunity to share in their knowledge of 21st century technology. NATEAC will help facilitate the process of design, construction and renovation of traditional and non-traditional theatres to the benefit of all who use them.
NATEAC 2016 will offer more than 60 panelists speaking at 24 sessions on topics ranging from LED power requirements to gender issues in public restrooms and prefabricated theatres.
