A few new session highlights include:

Back by popular demand, “Rope 201” is a follow-up to the surprise hit of the 2021 NWRS. Subject Matter Experts Stu Cox, Eric Rouse, and Andy Schmitz will dive even deeper into the intended uses, benefits and drawbacks of ropes, lines, and ties.

The Rope Access session, featuring industry experts from around the country, will explore rope access use in the entertainment industry, and how it can be used in the field to solve problems. Learn more about rope access standards and certifications and get insight on some of the available gear.

Loading into a university theatre can be significantly different from backing the trucks up to a  commercially operated roadhouse. A panel of university venue managers will ask, and then answer, “What makes them different?” by focusing on the unique challenges of the university setting including staff and leadership experience, red tape and paperwork, availability of skilled labor and more. Be prepared next time you load in on campus.
