Have you ever had that thought? Or maybe “This is so cool I just want to show EVERYBODY!” Don’t just think about how cool you are.
Show the world!
The Tech Expo returns to USITT in its 11th biannual edition this spring in
Featured on the floor of the Stage Expo, the Theatre Technology Exhibit has previously seen projects from any and all shops – costumes, paints, lighting, sound, props, rigging, carpentry, metals, automation, projections, and stage management. If someone is working on it, it has a place in the expo. Previous submissions have included a modular spiral staircase, articulated angel wings, a dimmable radio controlled light source, ultra low profile tracks, a cueable doily dropping machine, and “growing” grass. Really nothing is out of bounds as long as it has a place in a show or a shop.
This year organizers are waiting for your entry.
All projects accepted for the exhibition are given a display space at the conference and are published in the Tech Expo catalog. This is an excellent opportunity for professionals looking to have their work officially noticed. In addition to the catalog and the showing, the exposition is juried by a distinguished panel of industry technicians and a small number of entrants will receive a special recognition and even a modest cash award.
Submitting work is simple. The hard part is done, you’ve already had the idea and put it to use. By comparison this will be easy. Put together a short article, 500-1000 words (one or two pages) explaining what you did and how and why you did it. Be sure to include some drawings or photos that illustrate the item or process. Download the application form from:
and fill it out. Submit the application, the article, and the photos or drawings to the address shown on the form. Selected entrants will be notified and their submission will be included in the show and published in the 2007 show catalog.
