Whether in-person, virtual, or hybrid, the show caller or stage manager is responsible for directing an audio-visual experience that can have dozens or even hundreds of moving parts. From managing the onstage talent to the technical know-how, you'll learn how to engage with your onsite AV Team to design and deliver the ultimate live event.

This session uses real and relevant examples from recent events including work with the President of the United States, major television sporting events, as well as more intimate, but highly produced audience experiences. We'll review challenges from the industry including Mariah Carey's microphone fail at the 2017 New Years Eve event in Times Square as well as the Academy Award mistakes including what to do when a speaker stays onstage too long.

By working together we'll create a show flow, manage timelines, and learn how to bring your team together from behind the scenes. This is the perfect session for a seasoned event manager or team lead looking to better understand or even take on some stage management responsibilities, or someone interested in production and looking for a path to design and direct their own events.
