Yellow Box Church, Naperville, IL
A one-day FOH mixing event for the engineer, the musician, and the creative. This is the day before FILO, and at the same location. We dive deeper into the actual ART of mixing, spending more time comparing our mix methods, discussing why some styles seem to work in a mix…and why some don’t. That means more time listening and watching a mix get crafted in a one-of-a kind setting.
This day is the ultimate non-conference event—there isn’t anything else like this: an intimate setting and limited seating with three of the world’s top worship audio engineers: Andrew Stone (Church on the Move), Jeff Sandstrom (Chris Tomlin, Passion and North Point), and Lee Fields (Lincoln Brewster and Bayside Church). Come and get an up close and personal look at how, what, and WHY they do what they do.
Seating is limited.

FILO (First In Last Out)

May 23-24, 2017
Yellow Box Church, Naperville, IL
The FILO Conference aims to provide inspiring tools for everyone involved in the church technical arts looking for design, development and business insights. Whether you are a volunteer or a staff person, an audio engineer or a graphics operator, set builder or jack of all trades, there is something unique here for you and the role you play in your local church.
Designed specifically for the challenges church techs face, the FILO Conference brings a wide range of experienced technical artists that will provide industry insight, problem solving tips and new ways to make your job less difficult and help you leave with a sense that you are not alone.


June 10-16, 2017
Orlando, FL
InfoComm is focused on featuring the latest technologies for audio, video, display, projection, lighting and staging, digital signage, digital content creation, networking, signal distribution, and much more. This show offers training on all things AV, including rigging: the process of safely hanging equipment and structures from overhead. The trade show covers all the usual audio, video and lighting technologies, but tends to be more focused on presentational technologies—projection, media, digital signage. This would be an especially good show to go to if you are exploring implementing digital signage in your facility.
