Stage Expo 2007 - - -
Another Year, Another Record

Helen Willard
Stage Expo Sales Manager

With over 180 exhibitors in 27,750 square feet of exhibit space, Phoenix 2007 will go down in the record books as USITT's largest Stage Expo ever. USITT has been growing each year, with 24,700 square feet of exhibit space in Long Beach in 2004; 26,000 square feet in Toronto 2005; and 27,300 square feet last year in Louisville.

Thanks to all our exhibitors who made Stage Expo 2007 such a great success.

Fun was the order of the day during Stage Expo 2007 in Phoenix, Arizona. Above, Seachanger by Ocean Optics, Inc. floated on a sea of rubber duckies, both large and small, as those who attended the New Products Showcase can attest. Below, Glenn Hansen strikes a pose during a rare slow moment at the record-setting event.
