Timeless Communications Inc. has announced Pro Production 2003, "The Live Event Marketplace," which will take place January 10-12, 2003, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. Building upon the highly successful inaugural show last year, Pro Production 2003 will offer expanded educational opportunities and social functions in addition to the trade show portion of the event.

Pro Production 2003 brings together live event production professionals who coordinate, produce and manage major concert tours, sporting events, political conventions, touring Broadway shows, large corporate meetings and trade show exhibits. Suppliers and purchasers of services and products used in these environments are also invited to attend. Over 1,600 attendees from 33 states and 10 foreign countries were on hand for the inaugural Pro Production convention in January 2002.

Pro Production 2003 will commence on Thursday, January 9, at the annual Rick O’Brien Golf Tournament, which will be held at San Diego’s Riverwalk Golf Course. O'Brien, a highly respected production manager, passed away suddenly several years ago. He left behind three small children. A portion of the proceeds from the annual golf tournament are donated to the Rick O’Brien Children’s Educational Fund; last year’s tournament raised $1,500 for the fund.

Along with the golf tournament, an "early bird" reception/cruise, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., will be available to all full conference badge holders. Individual tickets for this event are also available.

Continuing in the same vein as last year's conference, the Parnelli Awards are scheduled for Friday, January 10. This year’s expanded awards ceremony will include not only the Lifetime Achievement Award but also an additional 15 awards. The Lifetime Achievement Award is determined by the Advisory Board; other award winners will be determined by a vote of Pro Lights & Staging News and Front of House magazine readers. Other award categories are: Lighting Designer of the Year, FOH Mixer of the Year, Set Designer of the Year, Monitor Mixer of the Year, Scenic Design Firm of the Year, Production of the Year, Lighting Company of the Year, Sound Company of the Year, Production Manager of the Year, Tour Manager of the Year, Staging Company of the Year, Transportation Company of the Year, Video Rental Company of the Year, Video Director of the Year and Road Dog of the Year.

On Saturday, January 11, Pro Lights & Staging News’ editor Bruce Jordahl will head up the "Industry Jam." Last year’s jam hosted over 20 industry players and singers onstage, representing such companies as All Access, High End Systems, CWP, Mobolazer, and many others. This year’s jam promises to be even better with a fireworks display concluding the evening’s festivities.

Pro Production 2003 has expanded its seminar series. Tentatively scheduled seminars include: "Is Your Venue Ready For the Show?," "Moving Your Mid-size Production House to the Next Level," "From the TD’s Perspective: The Live Broadcast Event," "Keeping Up with Technology," "Lighting Designer’s Project Analysis," and many others.

Registration for the event will be available starting July 1, online at Questions on exhibiting or attending can be answered by dialing toll-free 866/PRO-2003.
