The North American Theatre and Engineering Conference (NATEAC) is pleased to announce the panel lineup for its upcoming conference. The conference, to be held in New York City on July 20 and 21 2008, will offer two days of panels on topics ranging from Designing Alternative Spaces to the role of the Consultant in the Design Process.

“One of our primary goals,” notes conference director Bill Sapsis, “is to establish a foundation for continuing dialog among all parties involved in the creation of performance spaces in North America. Historically, there have been limited opportunities for these people to get together and share ideas on just what makes for a good theatre. This conference establishes that foundation. The panel discussions will appeal to not only the design teams, but also to the end users. We'll definitely give all of our attendees something to talk about.”

The panel list, along with other conference information, can be found on the NATEAC website. For more information please contact Bill Sapsis at 267.278.4561 or
