LOUISVILLE, KY – USITT’s 59th Annual Conference & Stage Expo will bring more than 5,000 members of the technical production and live entertainment industry and plenty of action to the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville, March 20-23, 2019.

The Institute is on track to break attendance records this year, meaning more excitement, technology, and networking opportunities than ever before. The Conference & Stage Expo will showcase the world of live entertainment design and technology with more than 340 exhibitors of the latest products and services for creating live shows, plus over 250 presentations, demonstrations, and celebrations of work by top artists in the field.

The show’s direct local economic spend is estimated at $5 million, with attendees filling seven hotels in the Louisville area and patronizing local arts venues, attractions, and dining establishments.
