USITT's 50th Annual Conference & Stage Expo will be held March 31 to April 3 at the Kansas City Convention & Entertainment Facilities in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Stage Expo will be held on Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m to 6 p.m., and on Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. so that exhibitors can attend the conference blockbuster sessions each morning.

Stage Expo 2010 will fill exhibit halls A, B, & C, located on the second level of the Kansas City Convention & Entertainment Facilities. Bartle Hall A/B/C is a 190,000-plus square foot space, approximately 25 percent larger than the exhibit hall in Cincinnati in 2009. 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 2010 will include several 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 plethora of special exhibits at Stage Expo 2010, celebrating 50 years of theatre design and technology.
