Sponsor Support Enhances
Phoenix Annual Conference

Thanks to our sponsors - California Institute of the Arts; City Theatrical, Inc.; Live Design Magazine; and Wenger Corporation - 2007 Conference attendees were able to access the internet to check e-mail and search the web at convenient computer kiosks located at Stage Expo. These "Cyber Cafes" have become a vital service for attendees.

Opening Night was enjoyed by many who gathered at the Hyatt Atrium Wednesday night to chew the fat…and some finger food. This fun reception, free to all Conference participants, would not be possible without the support of our sponsors: AV Pro, Inc.; Electronic Theatre Controls (ETC); Martin Professional, Inc.; SECOA; and Texas Scenic Company.

Tech Expo delighted Conference-goers with a fine showcase of solutions to common production problems. The display, which included the intriguingly titled projects "Low-Volume Rain," "A Weeping Window Effect," and "God of Hell Sparkers," was made possible by these sponsors: Creative Conners, Inc.; University of Delaware; GAMPRODUCTS, INC.; IATSE Local 1; UNLV College of Fine Arts-Entertainment Engineering and Design; Ohio State University; James Thomas Engineering; and Threshold Acoustics.

Sponsorship support makes it possible to offer events and services like those listed above. When you interact with people at these companies and organizations, go ahead and let them know you appreciate their ongoing commitment to USITT. Your recognition may be the key to their continued participation.
