Written by Flyhouse | Mar 8, 2018 5:00:11 PM

Are you attending the 2018 USITT Conference and Stage Expo in Fort Lauderdale? While we won’t be part of the floor show with a booth, Flyhouse will be involved as speakers in multiple sessions. Make sure to say hello before or after the sessions.

Flyhouse will also be part of the first-ever New World Rigging Symposium being held in conjunction with the USITT Conference. In these ten sessions, participants will be given the opportunity to further their technical knowledge, keep up-to-date with codes and standards, and learn what it’s like to work as a rigger in other segments of the entertainment industry.

Below is where you can find the Flyhouse presenters during the sessions.
