Let's shake off the COVID blues and start 2021 with a bang! The theme of this year's Stage Queensland Technical Managers' Conference is Energize which is exactly how you'll feel after three days of inspiring presentations and workshops, learning new skills, connecting with your peers and industry leaders and seeing the latest gear and technologies at the ever-popular Trade Show. You'll be motivated by the fantastic refurbishment at the host venue, The Events Centre, and feel like new experiencing the sounds and sights of Caloundra, a glorious beach location. 

The 2021 Technical Managers' Conference and Trade Show provides a unique opportunity for Queensland performing arts centre Technical and Operations Managers and staff to gather with industry colleagues and share ideas, policies and practises for the betterment of the arts sector as a whole and keep up-to-date with the latest sound, lighting and production trends and technologies on display by some of Australia's leading vendors at the trade show. The event offers valuable networking and learning opportunities for delegates, vendors and industry, strengthening existing relationships and building new ones. 

The 2021 Conference Program commences on Sunday 21 February with the official conference opening at 3pm including round-the-room member updates followed by a relaxed venue tour and trade show welcome gathering.

Delegates get down to business from 8:00am on Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd with two busy days of presentations, workshops and case studies by members and national experts on a range of topics including mental health and wellbeing, ICT & IP, technical training, human resources and hands-on industry-specific training workshops in AV, audio, lighting and rigging.
