NATEAC 2024 Opens Request for Proposals

October 10, 2023

NATEAC 2024 Opens Request for Proposals
The North American Theatre Engineering and Architecture Conference (NATEAC) is a quadrennial event with sessions on a variety of topics relevant to the design and construction of performance venues. The producer of the event, the Entertainment Services and Technology Association (ESTA), is now accepting proposals for sessions for the July 2024 conference, which will be held in Brooklyn, New York.

The theme of the 2024 conference is "Access." Access can be construed in both technical and human ways. While it certainly encompasses ADA solutions and rope, it can also include DEI, choice of clients, information in the AI age, gender-neutral restrooms, green space, and more. It will be exciting to see how the theme is interpreted!

Session topics should be relevant and timely, with a high level of knowledge to match the caliber of the audience. Proprietary products and processes are not suitable subjects. Proposals may be submitted through the NATEAC RFP submissions page at

NATEAC will host a world-class list of architects, engineers, theatre consultants, designers, and other industry professionals at the New York City College of Technology July 13-15, 2024. In addition to sessions, there will be networking opportunities, including the New York Harbor Cruise and a benefit dinner for Behind the Scenes Charity. To be updated about the latest NATEAC news, visit and sign up for the mailing list. Sponsorship opportunities are forthcoming.
