TOMCAT participated for the 3rd year in the 62th SETC that recently took place in Atlanta, Georgia. During the event, TOMCAT showcased its truss products, co-sponsored a design-tech mixer and donated two dance towers as give-away's.
SETC is the largest convention of its type in the country and offered the opportunity to over 4,000 students and faculty from all over the country to see new and innovative products, attend workshops, participate in professional auditions, compete and apply for theatre jobs, listen to key speakers, enjoy performance festivals, join social events and networking activities.
“It was an honor to be part of SETC as this event is very relevant in encouraging the educational and creative process of university and college theatre,” stated Stefano Rosellini, General Manager of TOMCAT. “Our company has participated for 3 years in SETC as we believe in fostering the talent and creativity of the future generation of professionals and providing them with opportunities to network and join the industry” added Rosellini.
TOMCAT participated with a booth that was set up with the assistance of SETC interns where standard truss products such as Dance Tower were exhibited. TOMCAT staff shared with the SETC attendees the applications of their products in the theater industry and provided examples of custom projects TOMCAT has designed for customers in the industry.
During the event TOMCAT partnered with Vari-Lite to sponsor a design-tech mixer providing an opportunity for over 500 professionals, presenters, professors, commercial company representatives and students to meet, and network with each other and celebrate the start of the 62nd SETC Convention. This is the second year TOMCAT sponsored the design-tech mixer in partnership with VARI-LITE.
In addition, TOMCAT gave away two dance towers who were received by Chris Crawford, Assistant Professor of Theatre on behalf of Shorter College in Rome, Georgia.
TOMCAT's participation in SETC illustrates the company's commitment to promote innovation, solutions and education with a different perspective in the theatre industry.
