Gareth’s talk at USITT

Creative Conners President Gareth Conner speaks at USITT

Gareth and I went out to Milwaukee last week for USITT 2013. It was a great conference and we had a good time catching up with our friends, meeting some customers in person and talking to new people. Gareth spoke at ‘Turntables On A Budget’ with Scott Bartlett. Scott gave a great talk about different construction techniques and materials choices if you’re tight on money and need a revolve. Gareth spoke about our products, how they integrate with revolves and how affordable they are, especially the rentals. It was also really cool to hear a lot of people talk about the Creative Conners system as the emerging “Industry Standard” for automation in live theatre. A big thanks to everyone who spreads the word!

All in all, a great time. See you all in Texas in 2014!

USITT 2013 is just around the corner, and if you’re planning on attending, you should check out Turntables on a Budget with our very own Gareth Conner. Gareth will be presenting with Scott Bartley from Central Connecticut State University. The session is Thursday, March 21, from 1:00PM – 2:30PM , Room Delta Center 103BC.

Here’s a description of the session:

This session will cover the building of turntables in a wood scene shop using a variety of construction techniques and drive options. Discussions will be on construction techniques able to withstand the forces of various drive mechanisms, how to cut and assemble turntables and be able to disassemble for storage and reuse. A guest panelist will present a variety of options on automation from building your own system to renting or buying. Question and Answer to follow presentation.

Gareth and I will both be in Milwaukee for the beginning of the conference and we’d love to meetup with any and all of our Creative Conners community, so if you’ll be there, drop me a line at
