We will celebrate our 60th anniversary with a Texas-sized Conference & Stage Expo in Houston, April 1-4, 2020, building the success of the 2019 event’s record-breaking Stage Expo by providing products and services for every stage and live entertainment venue. 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.
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. Building on the enormous success of the first two symposiums, 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!
In addition to the networking and new ideas coming out of Conference meetings and sessions, the Stage Expo floor remains the excitement center of the event. Expo goers know to look for the latest state-of-the-art technology on display alongside innovative resources to make their own productions better than ever.
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!
