Students in a Q&A panel

Who is this for?

Are you a determined and creative student, in theatre, music, or fine arts? A driven engineer with an interest in unconventional job opportunities? What about a hard working problem solver, who thinks outside of the box? We want to tell you about the live event industry!

Join for our annual LIVE EVENT CAREER EXPLORATION CONFERENCE at Rock Lititz. This unique one-day event will showcase jobs ranging from design to engineering, manufacturing to finance, scenic art to operations, across a fast-paced, creative and technical industry.

Two of these unique days are offered each year. In the spring, one day is dedicated to high school students, as a general introduction to the entertainment industry, and possible paths of study to be ready for a career (spoiler, not all include a four year program!) In the fall, college students  and recent graduates are invited for a deeper dive into live event specialties and lots of interaction with local employers and possible entry paths into industry.

Either Live Event Career Exploration experience offers insight from leading industry professionals, as well as special immersive demonstrations to give students a true overview of this creatively diverse field.
