About
What is the Live Production Summit?

The Live Production Summit was founded on principles that made its predecessor, the Tour Link Pro Conference, a force within the industry… an event where experienced and developing live production personnel and businesses connect to one another and to opportunities… where businesses and partnerships form and launch… an event where all can participate and grow… where issues and solutions are explored for the greater good of our world-wide industry… and we celebrate our good works and our people.

The Resort
Where?

The 2021 Live Production Summit will take place at the luxurious JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, AZ.

 

The Starr Pass Experience

Start your visit by flying into Tucson International Airport, a low-stress and easy-to-navigate airport served by over 60 flights daily from 17 non-stop destinations and one-stop connections from more than 310 world-wide destinations. Serviced by American, Delta, Southwest, and United Airlines, upon arrival, you are 12.5 miles from hotel.

 

The Starr Pass Experience

The JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa rests within the breathtaking Tucson Mountain Park. Each morning, you’re invited to participate in a traditional Native American ceremony and unique Sonoran Desert experience. During the morning ritual, the warming sunrise, the Native American flute, burning your own sage prayer tie, and an eagle feather blessing will inspire you to see life from a different perspective. Reflect on connection, find focus, and create lasting memories. In a ritual that is centuries old, make your intentions known to the universe through the traditional burning of sage.

 

Participate in a guided or self-guided trail adventure. Onward and upward you step over rocks millions of years old as you traverse the mountainside filled with towering saguaros, cholla, prickly pear cactus, and acacia surrounded by wildlife including quail, roadrunners, owls, hawks, gila monsters, javelinas, jackrabbits and more.

 

Each evening at 5:30, guests are invited to gather on the Salud Terrace to watch the sunset and experience the Starr Pass nightly tradition – the tequila toast. Hear the Legend of Arriba Abajo as part of this unique experience where one of over 150 artisan tequilas is featured with a complimentary toast.

Golf
Live Production Summit Golf Tournament

Starr Pass Country Club offers an unforgettable desert golf experience. The Starr Pass legend began more than 120 years ago when Richard Starr crafted a trail through the rugged Tucson Mountains. Today, the legend continues on the Arnold Palmer-designed course, meandering through the mountain and arroyos of Tucson.

The Rattler Course begins with stunning views of Tucson and the surrounding mountain ranges. With distances ranging from 2,669 to 3,490 yards, precise placement is the key. You will be hitting over natural arroyos while enjoying the scenic beauty of true desert golf.

The Roadrunner Course features dramatic elevation changes and swirling winds created by the Tucson Mountains. This course is a true test for all experience levels. Offering great views from the surrounding resort, distances range from 2,370 to 3,241 yards.

Registration for the Live Production Summit Golf Tournament on Thursday, January 14th, is open to Live Production Summit attendees only. Your Tournament fee (and reservation/payment for golf clubs, if needed) can be made when registering online for the conference.
