Instagram took USITT 2017 by storm when we announced a contest full of hashtags, photos, and Amazon gift cards. USITT attendees used the hashtag #myusitt2017 to take some super creative photos of sessions, Stage Expo, and all things St. Louis.
At the end of each Conference day, two winners were selected by our marketing team which resulted in six winners and a collection of unique photos that will keep the memory of USITT 2017 alive.
