The Association of British Theatre Technicians (ABTT) exists to advance understanding of the technical subjects connected with the theatre and theatrical presentation and to promote good theatre design and technical presentation of theatrical works.
Supported by the Theatre Safety Committee the ABTT produces a Code of Practice for the Theatre Industry. Membership is available to anyone who is interested in the design of buildings for performance or the technical arts of theatre. Those with suitable experience may be admitted to the electoral college by peer review. The ABTT provides a Safety Helpline, vocational training, the industry magazine Sightline, Technical Standards for Places of Entertainment, Codes of Practice, regular visits, conferences, forums, lectures and meetings.
On the ABTT stand this year there will be copies of the new edition of Technical Standards for Places of Entertainment 2015. This will be available at discount prices and there will be some special membership offers too.
