Award winning lighting set designer LeRoy Bennett headlines the Education Program at ENTECH CONNECT 2014.


This week sees the launch of the 2014 Education Program for ENTECH CONNECT, featuring an impressive line up of speakers and topics headlined by international lighting guru LeRoy Bennett.


An award winning lighting set designer, Bennett works with the world’s leading performance artists including Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Rammstein, and Rihanna. His CV down the years is a veritable who’s who of artists performing on the world stage.

"The combination of musical and architectural emotion is the driving force behind my work! " Bennett states. “I always enjoy sharing my love for design with people who embrace the creative process, and I am very excited about speaking at ENTECH CONNECT and meeting people in the Australian creative community!”
