Make the Most of Local
With its beautiful weather and southern location, Fort Lauderdale provides unique advantages for USITT 2018, and we’re leaving no stone unturned.
Fort Lauderdale offers us an ideal venue to reach local technicians in the southeast, Caribbean, and Central/South America. Many of our exhibiting companies have offices in and around South Florida including Chauvet Professional, Robe Lighting, ChamSys, and Gear Source.
The warm-weather location is also ideal for bringing our event outdoors. Stageline will be providing a mobile stage trailer for USITT 2018, to serve as a special event space to host our Opening Night event and Tech Olympics on an outdoor stage.
Sessions will focus on challenges in lighting, sound, costume, and scenic technology when dealing with earth’s natural elements.
Theme parks such as Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld are just a few hours away from Fort Lauderdale. The themed entertainment industry offers distinct challenges in tech-production for off-stage events. Extend your trip to South Florida to experience the magic of these parks and be inspired by how they combine technology, creativity, and teamwork to make attractions come alive.
Cruise lines also draw visitors to the area. Carnival, Princess, Royal Caribbean, and Celebrity are a few of the major cruise lines who have headquarter offices as well as training facilities within the Fort Lauderdale area.
Megachurches can be found throughout Florida. USITT will offer opportunities for house of worship technicians to see the equipment and services offered on the Expo floor as well as training opportunities at the Conference, in workshops, and demos.
Join us in Fort Lauderdale and take advantage of the sun, surf, education, and career opportunities at USITT 2018.
