Stage Expo Filling Up Fast

Helen Willard
Stage Expo Sales Manager

Stage Expo 2008 in Houston was completely sold out with no room for several exhibitors who waited until the last minute to sign up. Advance sales for Stage Expo 2009 Cincinnati have been strong, despite the sagging economy, with 85 percent of the available booth space already reserved. Less than 30 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.

USITT's 49th Annual Conference & Stage Expo will be held March 18 to 21 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati. Stage Expo will occupy Exhibit Halls A & B of the DECC, a 150,000-plus square foot space. Plan now to spend plenty of time to see all of Stage Expo, the annual showcase of businesses, products, services, and educational opportunities for the performing arts and entertainment industry.

Stage Expo 2009 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 including Cover the Walls, Tech Expo, and the triennial Art Auction.
