2020 marks our 60th year as an Institute, and we plan to celebrate with a Texas-sized Conference & Stage Expo in Houston, April 1-4, 2020. The event will build off the success of USITT19’s record-breaking Stage Expo by providing products and services for stage and live entertainment venues alike. Being able to connect — and reconnect — with friends and colleagues from around the world is always an important part of the Conference, and next year’s networking opportunities are no exception.

Why Houston? America’s fourth-largest city, Houston is a cosmopolitan destination where Southern hospitality meets urban chic, filled with world-class dining, arts, hotels, shopping, and nightlife. GQ calls it the “New Capital of Southern Cool,” and WalletHub ranked it as one of the Most Fun Cities in America. Houston’s nonprofit arts and culture industry generates more than $1.1 billion in economic activity each year, so USITT will feel right at home!

Don’t forget to add the New World Rigging Symposium to your list of must-dos in Houston! USITT and ESTA will present the third New World Rigging Symposium, March 31 – April 1 in Houston in conjunction with the Annual Conference & Stage Expo. Similar to the Symposium’s first two successful iterations, the 2020 event will once again provide an opportunity for riggers and those interested in the live entertainment rigging industry to network, discuss current issues and new technologies, and help shape the future of the industry. Register here!

We also want to encourage you to book your housing as soon as possible through Connections Housing, the only official housing partner of USITT 2020. Our reserved room blocks are already being snatched up extremely fast. Don’t get stuck paying too much for a room too far away from the action.

We can’t wait to welcome you to Houston for USITT 2020!
