Ask The Legends At Production Live! 2020
Turn up the house lights – Pollstar just unveiled panel topics for Production Live! 2020, including the return of “OK What Do You Want To Know: Ask The Legends.”
Scheduled Feb. 4, Production Live! is the one-day precursor to the Feb. 5-6 Pollstar Live! conference, with both events taking place at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Production Live! is dedicated to the production side of the industry, with panels on technologically-enhanced live events, maximizing rehearsals, the latest technology in sound, lights and video, and more. Programming at the 2019 edition was led by production legend Jake Berry, who has worked on tours for U2, the Rolling Stones, Beyoncé and Mötley Crüe, to name a few.
Here’s what’s on the schedule for Production Live! 2020 so far:
Emerging Markets: Can We (And Should We) Get There From Here?
Among the considerations are cultural differences, logistics, geo-political climate, production capabilities, and whether the show is a one-off or destined to be a regular port-of-call. Production Live will examine this topic from all angles from experienced producers and world travelers.

It’s baaack! One of the most popular sessions in the history of Production Live is returning, as legends of the live concert production industry take on ANY question from the audience. Come for the information, stay for the war stories!
