ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) is a global leader in the manufacture of lighting and rigging products. The company was launched in 1975, when as students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, CEO Fred Foster, his brother Bill and a few friends invented their own lighting control desk. Since then, ETC has integrated into its corporate philosophy the fostering of young talent who will themselves be leaders in the field one day.
The ETC LDI Student Sponsorship is one way ETC accomplishes that goal. The Sponsorship gives a group of deserving students an all-expense-paid trip to LDI, the largest stage-technology tradeshow in North America. The Sponsorship lets recipients go behind the scenes with ETC to see the latest technology, network with peers and industry luminaries and meet prospective employers. It is a unique opportunity to gain experience, make connections and launch a successful career.
ETC LDI Student Sponsorship Lighting the way toward a bright future!
