Table Spaces Available
For Stage Expo 2008

Helen Willard
Stage Expo Sales Manager

Priority space selection for Commercial and Non-Commercial tables is taking place this fall for Stage Expo 2008 in Houston. Commercial tables cost $850, and Non-Commercial tables cost $650. Each table space reservation includes a 6-foot table with two chairs on a carpeted space, plus two full-conference exhibitor badges.

Commercial tables may be selected by USITT Organizational members whose company's annual gross sales are less than $250,000 or whose sales in the performing arts market, as determined by USITT, are less than $100,000. In order to qualify for a Commercial Table, organizations must submit a statement from a CPA or attorney acknowledging that the company/organization meets either qualification.

Non-Commercial Tables may be selected by USITT Organizational Members whose company or organization operates with a not-for-profit status. All public educational institutions are qualified to select a Non-Commercial Table. Other organizations that meet the qualifications must include a statement from a CPA or attorney acknowledging that the company/organization meets the qualification or provide copies of appropriate IRS documentation.

Table guidelines were developed in 2004 to insure that each of the eight table exhibitors in a cluster of tables is able to fully use the space for which they have paid. A draped storage space located in the center of each cluster is provided for the eight table exhibitors to share. Each exhibitor's responsibility is to be a "good neighbor" to adjacent exhibitors, and exhibit operations must be conducted so as not to trespass upon the rights of other exhibitors.

Table guidelines are as follows: "A standard commercial or non-commercial table is allocated a space not to exceed 7 feet wide. Exhibits over 7 feet wide will need to purchase two table spaces or a booth. Diagonal installations that infringe upon adjoining tables will not be permitted. No table exhibit can be taller than 8 feet. Exhibits must not intrude into any aisle. Local fire codes will be strictly enforced."

A total of 64 Commercial and Non-Commercial table spaces are available for Stage Expo 2008. These tables are a great deal for colleges, universities, and other organizations who wish to promote their programs at the conference. Anyone who wishes to reserve a table should contact
