With six months until the show, 80 percent of the available booth space has been reserved for Stage Expo 2011. Nearly 100 commercial exhibitors have already reserved booth space for USITT's 51st Annual Conference & Stage Expo which will be held March 10 to 12 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Plan now to attend this annual showcase of businesses, products, services, and educational opportunities for the performing arts and entertainment industry.

Stage Expo has been growing steadily, each year setting records for numbers of exhibitors or square footage of exhibit space sales. Next year's Stage Expo will keep the momentum going, with several new companies in addition to our perennial exhibitors. Less than 40 booth spaces remain to be sold, so those who would like to exhibit but have not yet reserved a booth space should contact Helen Willard immediately.

Stage Expo 2011 will include seven Cyber Lounges so attendees can check e-mail and surf the web, as well as the USITT Booth & Boutique, where Conference-goers can learn more about the Institute, talk informally to a Fellow of the Institute, purchase logo items, or attend book signings. There will be a variety of special exhibits at Stage Expo 2011, including Tech Expo 2011 and Cover The Walls.

A limited number of Commercial tables for small companies meeting criteria, and Non-Commercial tables for colleges, universities and other non-profit organizations, are available.
