CITT To Celebrate 25th Anniversary At Rendez-vous 2015

May 29th, 2015

02 Rendezvous (1)There will be cause for celebration when CITT’s annual Rendez-vous conference and trade show heads to Vancouver from August 20-22, 2015, as this year marks the association’s 25th anniversary.

In 1989, a group of like-minded individuals from the USITT sections in Alberta and Ontario gathered to form what would, on Aug. 1, 1990, become the Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology. Spurred by an era of increased regulations in Canada around such things as safety standards and the use prop guns, as well as increased recognition of the different theatrical cultures between the U.S. and Canada, Canadian theatre professionals agreed they would be better served by having their own national organization.

“And so it began, 25 years of growth and service to our members,” current CITT President Michael Harris tells Professional Sound. “We are excited to celebrate 25 years of milestones and the achievements of our members. At this year’s Rendez-vous in Vancouver, we begin the next chapter, the next 25 years of milestones and achievements. Join us as we celebrate our humble beginnings, our members, and the promise of an exciting future for CITT/ICTS.”

Rendez-vous 2015 will be hosting a larger trade show with longer visiting hours over a two-day span at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Pre-conference workshops will be replaced with hands-on training and backstage tours. The Education Forum and Roadhouse Roundtable discussions will be moved to Saturday, while the Annual General Meeting will become an AGM Breakfast on Saturday. As usual, the New Product Breakfast will kick off the Friday morning. The social events will remain the same, with the Junk Challenge on Thursday, Swag Bingo on Friday, and the Awards Banquet on Saturday.

Registration is now open and a conference schedule is available on the CITT website. For more information, contact CITT: 888-271-3383, info@citt.org, www.citt.org.
