Founders Ben Stowe and Mike Fernino announced intentions to produce their 6th Lighting Symposium in the Spring of 2020! The symposium has been extremely popular and well received since the debate event in 2013. All symposium events have been held at the academy at EV world headquarters in Burnsville MN. Extremely close to the Minneapolis airport attendees enjoy a 15 minute shuttle ride to the academy from the host hotel located right across the street from world famous Mall of America.
Hundreds of attendees have benefited from the symposium with multiple instructors covering a broad range of topics from lighting design, software operation and integration, sales and marketing and product demonstrations. Sponsor support from Eternal Lighting, Chauvet DJ and Ape Labs along with EV has greatly enhanced the event.
The Lighting Symposium is a 2-day intensive workshop running 9 hours each day with a lunch break. However, the after hour activities have also been a great enhancement to the event. In years past attendees have networked at the kickoff party, rode a mechanical bull at a Texas Style BBQ buffet and experienced unforgettable VIP access to First Avenue night club in downtown Minneapolis courtesy of EV!
Last year, the Lighting Symposium piggybacked with the Audio Symposium and offered a double ticket pass for both events providing 4 days of unmatched education. The goal is to repeat that offering as it was very well received.
Dates will be announced soon giving potential attendees around 1 year to make plans. We are looking forward to another remarkable event and a packed house at EV! Mike and Ben are truly appreciate of the support and enthusiasm that surround this announcement!
