Stage Expo Looking Like
Another Record Breaker

Helen Willard
Stage Expo Sales Manager

With six months until the show, 90 percent of the available booth space has been reserved for Stage Expo 2008. Nearly 100 commercial exhibitors have already booked booth space for USITT's 48th Annual Conference & Stage Expo which will be held March 20 to 22 in Houston, Texas. Plan now to attend this annual showcase of businesses, products, services, and educational opportunities for the performing arts and entertainment industry.

Stage Expo has grown steadily, each year setting a new record for square footage of exhibit space sales. Next year's Stage Expo will follow the trend, as the early numbers predict a sold-out show in March. Less than 20 booth spaces remain to be sold, so those who would like to exhibit but have not yet reserved a booth space should contact Helen Willard immediately.

Stage Expo 2008 will include five Cyber Cafes so attendees can check e-mail and surf the web, as well as the USITT Booth & Boutique, where conference goers can learn more about the Institute, purchase logo items, or attend book signings. There will be a variety of special exhibits at Stage Expo 2008 including the biennial Design Expo, plus a display of the United States' entries for the 2007 Prague Quadrennial including the National, Student and Architecture exhibits.
