For the Record

Last year's show in Louisville set new records for the number of exhibitors and square footage of exhibit space sales with 193 exhibitors in 27,300 square feet of exhibit space. Stage Expo 2007 is poised to break the records set last year in Louisville with less than a month until the show. The new booths recently added have been selling quickly, and all eight commercial table spaces are sold. More than 50 colleges, universities, and theatre companies have reserved non-commercial table spaces to promote their programs.

For more information about Stage Expo 2007 exhibitors, visit the Stage Expo Web Page to see the Stage Expo layout and a current list of exhibitors. Click on a highlighted booth to find contact information and a brief description for each exhibitor. Links are provided to exhibitors' websites to learn more about their products and services prior to the show.

There are just a handful of booths and non-commercial tables still available for Stage Expo 2007. Those wanting to exhibit at this year's show, send an e-mail message to immediately. Priority Space Selection for Stage Expo 2008 in Houston will take place in the Stage Expo Show Office on Saturday, March 17.

Complementing the commercial and non-commercial booths and tables will be a plethora of special exhibits at Stage Expo 2007 including Tech Expo 2007 and the annual Architecture Awards exhibit. Cover The Walls will feature a Scene Design Commission sponsored exhibit of the work of John Ezell. There will be special exhibits showcasing the work of Irene Corey and Ladislav Vychodil, and the International Committee will sponsor an exhibit of work by Bulgarian costume designer Marina Ratchinova, Netherlands designer Warner Van Wely, Welsh scenographer Sean Crowley, and Belgium scenic technologist Chris Van Goethem.

Recent Stage Expo openings have been memorable, thanks to Bandaloni, the one-man band who entertained in Toronto, Mariachi Los Angeles in Long Beach, Sesame Street Live in Minneapolis, and the second-line band who led us into the New Orleans Superdome. Last year was no exception as the Churchill Downs bugler played the Call to Post to open the show, then serenading with My Old Kentucky Home.

Be sure to be at the Stage Expo Opening 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 15 to see what the special entertainment will be this year.
