Conference & Stage Expo

Stage Expo Moving Closer

Helen Willard, Stage Expo Sales Manager

Stage Expo will provide a very different experience in 2012 than visitors found when USITT first went to Long Beach in 1998.

More than 100 exhibitors have already booked space for USITT's 52nd Annual Conference & Stage Expo, which will be held March 29 to 31 in Long Beach, California.  With six months until the show, 80 percent of the available booth space has been reserved, and less than 40 booth spaces remain to be sold.  Plan now to attend this annual showcase of businesses, products, services, and educational opportunities for the performing arts and entertainment industry.

Exhibitors who have recently reserved space include Camburn & Associates, Cobalt Studios, Duck’s Echo Sound, Frank Morrow Company, Northern Sound and Light, Necessity’s Inventions, Slingco, and Stagejunk.com.

Stage Expo 2012 will include eight 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, purchase logo items, or attend book signings.  There will be a variety of special exhibits at Stage Expo, including Design Expo 2012, several Commission-sponsored and Regional exhibits, and the USITT/USA PQ 2011 National Exhibit, From the Edge, the student exhibit, Emerge, and the architecture design exhibit.
