Stage Queensland’s 2024 Technical Managers’ Conference, being held at the Empire Theatre in Toowoomba from 5th to 7th February, has confirmed venue technical specialists The P.A. People as its inaugural Platinum Sponsor.

The conference provides a unique opportunity for technical/operations managers and staff from performing arts centres in Queensland to gather together to share ideas, policies and practises for the betterment of the arts sector as a whole.

With a trade show integrated into the event it also provides an opportunity to keep up-to-date with the latest sound, lighting, staging and production trends and technologies, presenting a valuable networking and exchange platform for delegates, vendors, and industry to build and strengthen relationships.

Commenting on the company’s support for the Conference, The P.A. People Manager of Venue Engineering, Peter Grisard stated “we are delighted to be attending and sponsoring this year’s Conference.

“There is a high level of interest in key topics that affect the Venue sector, with many people at the table from the Queensland venue industry to lead and engage with those discussions. This Conference is a great opportunity to energise a comprehensive Venue conversation and a great kick-off for the new year.”

The P.A. People has been designing and delivering technical solutions for theatres and other venues for over 50 years.
