Stage Expo is full of surprises, and you can never tell what might appear until you arrive. In 2010 it was a mustang at the Steeldeck booth, but for 2011? Find out when State Expo 2011 opens Thursday, March 10 at 11 a.m. at the Charlotte Convention Center.

Click on a highlighted booth to find contact information and a brief description for each exhibitor. Links are provided to exhibitors' websites so you can learn more about their products and services prior to the show.

Then join the crowd that gathers for the grand opening of Stage Expo on Thursday, March 10. The exhibit hall doors open at 11:00 am, but plan to be there early to be part of the action. You never know what will happen at a Stage Expo Opening. Meet us by the Grand Staircase at lobby level to witness the cutting of the ceremonial USITT gaff tape which officially opens the show.

Stage Expo will be open from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday of the Conference week. Plan plenty of time to visit the commercial booths and tables, non-commercial tables, and special exhibits which make USITT Stage Expo a one-of-a-kind show.
