A doubleheader in Cincinnati!

Baseball fans will recognize the reference as USITT has chosen the midwest city as the site of two upcoming USITT Annual Conference & Stage Expo events -- 2009 and 2015.

Choosing one city for two dates has been very popular with USITT members and guests in the past. Such forward planning allows people to become more familiar with a venue and nearby amenities.

As a bonus, dates for the two Conferences will also be the same. In both 2009 and 2015 the Annual Conference will run Wednesday, March 18 through Saturday, March 21 and Stage Expo will be held Thursday, March 19 through Saturday, March 21.

USITT VP-Conferences Joe Aldridge said that securing dates for both years can increase the flexibility of what USITT offers. "We'll have people who will already know what the Convention Center and hotels have to offer after our first visit in 2009, which will give us even more room to be creative for 2015," he said.

Cincinnati has many benefits for those attending USITT"s Annual Conference & Stage Expo. Cincinnati's Playhouse in the Park, University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music, and many other theatre, dance, and music programs all enrich the arts scene.

Details of programming will be released at the conclusion of the 2008 Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Houston, Texas.
