Staging Connections supports industry with new recruitment event
Staging Connections’ new event, ACCESS AV, is dedicated to educating and encouraging aspiring events professionals to kick start their career with Staging Connections. The inaugural ACCESS AV was held on 27 April 2017 at ANZ stadium and attracted 110 attendees from a variety of colleges, TAFE’s and direct public.
The program provides attendees with a taste of how a career in AV and event technology could look, complete with demonstrations, hands-on experience and the chance to have one-on-ones with experienced technicians and event professionals from Staging Connections.
Attendees were excited and amazed by an array of technical stations, that provided opportunities to practice and develop new skills such as mixing a virtual band using a high-end Yamaha console, program moving lights using a smart phone, learn how to mix multiple cameras, and operate moving LX on GrandMA Wing and GrandMA2.
