OSA International, Inc. Takes on Title Sponsorship and Production Management for the Tour Link 2015 Conference

OSA's Vice President Jim Risgin Takes on Role as Production Manager at Tour Link 2015

LAS VEGAS, NV and CHICAGO, IL and NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2014) - OSA International, Inc., one of the industry's leading audio visual solutions providers for live events and entertainment, announces its expanded role at the annual Tour Link 2015 Conference in Palm Springs, California, January 8th - 10th. OSA's Vice President Jim Risgin will take on the responsibility as the conference production manager, and the company will maintain its standing as the sole Title Production Sponsor.

The Tour Link Conference was created to unite touring professionals and provide an open forum to share experiences and learn from each other. Touring is an enormous undertaking in the world of events; executing flawless shows back-to-back while traveling throughout the country and around the world. It takes the right people with the right talent to make this happen.

"It's critical to have a forum as valuable as Tour Link," says Risgin "It's important for OSA to support the education and mentoring for this industry as it continues to rapidly evolve. The opportunity for industry professionals to learn about what's ahead in the next generation and find support as well as new mentors, teachers, and potential employment is invaluable to make our industry stronger."

The first Tour Link Conference was held in 1998 with less than 50 attendees, and today has grown to nearly a 1,000 of the best minds and talent in touring who loyally attend every year for the networking and educational aspects.

"The Tour Link team spends significant time creating a relevant and current program composed of workshops, panels, demonstrations and exhibits," says Founder & Owner Larry Smith of Tour Link. "We are always looking for the latest in new techniques, processes, technology, and pressing issues crucial to the industry, both current and forthcoming. Bringing OSA into a larger role within the conference helps us advance and execute our vision for Tour Link."

Looking ahead, the Tour Link 2015 Conference will also draw in producers, technical directors, and event planners in corporate events. Bringing these industries together provides a larger scope for learning and sharing by looking at events from a new perspective. Corporate events are becoming more elaborate, with world-class musicians as entertainment, and the use of the technology is staggering. It is an exciting year to attend Tour Link.

"My goal as the production manager is to execute a professional event that exceeds the quality the audience is accustomed to experiencing," says Risgin. "OSA is proud to take part of this intense three-day conference to support the touring and entertainment industry we are an integral part of throughout the year."
