For the Record
Stage Expo 2007 Phoenix
in Great Shape

Helen Willard
Stage Expo Sales Manager

If you have seen the Stage Expo map on the Conference website (click for map) you may have noticed that Stage Expo 2007 will be shaped much like Stage Expo 2005 in Toronto. Exhibit Halls D/E and the Ballroom in the Phoenix Convention Center's South Building stretch 500 feet from one side to the other, and 230 feet from the front of the hall to the back, creating a space that is more than twice as wide as it is deep. With 16 aisles running from front-to-back and just six aisles running from side-to-side, it seems that all of our exhibitors will be close to the front of the exhibit halls.

Another unusual feature about the exhibit halls we will be using in Phoenix is that one section, the Ballroom, includes a large stage. That stage will be the home for Cover the Walls 2007, as well as some of the other special exhibits planned for Phoenix. Look for more details on those special exhibits in an upcoming issue of Sightlines.

Our exhibit halls in the Phoenix Convention Center are conveniently located immediately adjacent to the registration area and meeting rooms. In most convention centers the exhibit halls and meeting rooms are on different levels, separated by escalator rides up and down. In the South Building of the PCC, everything is on one level. The conference registration area will be in Lobby Two, just inside the 3rd Street entrance of the PCC, with the Tucson and Yuma meeting rooms flanking the registration lobby on either side.

The South Building of the Convention Center is just a couple blocks from the Hyatt Regency and Wyndham hotels, as well as the Orpheum Theatre, putting all of our conference venues within easy walking distance. With Phoenix's mild March weather, getting from the hotels to the convention center will be a breeze.

At the right is a preliminary list of exhibitors for Stage Expo 2007.
