Exciting news! If you can’t make the trip to New Orleans next weekend to attend the USEA Annual Meeting & Convention, you can still watch many of the meetings, forums and special events thanks to a wall-to-wall live stream from RNS Video. Last year’s inaugural live stream was a big success — around 1,400 viewers tuned in over the course of the weekend — and a demonstration of the USEA’s commitment to sharing its great programming with as broad an audience as possible.
Two separate feeds from the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention will be available: an “Open Stream” with content that is free and available for all to watch, and a “Member Stream” available for viewing free to USEA members who have joined or renewed their membership for the 2019 competition season. View the full list of sessions that will be streamed across the open and members only feeds here.
If you haven’t yet renewed your annual USEA vows, here’s your carrot-on-a-stick to do so! Both new and returning members can choose from several membership options including a full competing membership or a supporting membership. Click here to join or renew your membership now and gain access to the full Convention live stream experience.
The 2018 Convention will feature a packed four-day schedule of forums, lectures, award-givings and the Hall of Fame ceremony which will induct six eventing legends: Capt. Mark Phillips, Karen O’Connor, Nina and Tim Gardner, Marty Simensen, Howard Simpson, and Kerry Millikin’s Thoroughbred, Out and About. Learn more about this year’s inductees here. The keynote speaker will be Erik Duvander. Erik was appointed to the role of U.S. Performance Director for Eventing in October of 2017 and we’re all excited to hear his reflections on his first year with the program and his thoughts for the future.
The Sheraton New Orleans Hotel will play host from Dec. 6-9. Still on the fence about a field trip? Visit the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention page for more info.
