Stage Expo 2010
Kansas City Here We Come
Stage Expo 2009 in Cincinnati was a great success,
with 180 exhibitors in 28,100 square feet of exhibit space, second
only to Stage Expo 2008 in Houston. Preliminary attendance figures
announced at the Conference included 4,363 attendees, up nine percent
Attendees awaiting the grand opening of Stage
Expo were treated to a spirited performance by Jake Speed & The Freddies,
a Cincinnati band playing a mix of traditional and original American
folk and bluegrass music. VP Conferences Joe Aldridge cut the USITT
tape, and the crowd streamed into the exhibit halls to gather technical
information and collect swag. Exhibitors were extremely happy with
the traffic at Stage Expo, in part due to the more than 1,200 people
who visited Stage Expo on a VIP Pass.
Exhibitors were invited to reserve
Kansas City 2010 booth space during the priority space
selection held in Cincinnati on the last day of Stage Expo 2009. A
total of 85 booth exhibitors booked 22,000 square feet of space during
the priority space selection. Over 70 percent of the available booth
space has been reserved for next year’s show, so Stage Expo 2010 is already
well on its way to filling three large exhibit halls.
The 50th Annual
USITT Conference & Stage Expo will be held in the Kansas City
Convention Center, located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Stage
Expo 2010 will be in the Convention Center's Bartle Halls A, B, & C,
with meeting rooms located below the exhibit halls. Four escalators
lead from the registration area and the meeting rooms directly into
the exhibit halls.
Booth space selection will continue until all
available booth spaces are sold. Priority space selection
for table spaces will be conducted later in the year. Anyone who would
like to exhibit at Stage Expo 2010 in Kansas City should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
The Kansas City Convention Center will host USITT’s 2010
Annual Conference & Stage Expo, and a celebration of the organization’s
50 years of innovation and networking.
