Our team had a fantastic time at the USITT (US Institute for Theatre Technology) Conference in Salt Lake City this year. With 275 exhibiting companies, it was as fun as it was diverse.
Our booth featured multiple video presentations as well as a live camera feed from the level of the sample grid panels. When people stepped onto the panels, they saw their own feet on the monitor. We really enjoyed seeing so many people at the booth this year, both new faces and familiar faces from previous conferences as well as past projects from all across the country. We had the opportunity to talk shop with colleagues in the field and also demonstrate to the students who traveled to Utah for the event the wide variety of opportunities available to them in the industry.
We continued our tradition of being a sponsor for the Behind the Scenes Raffle, for which we donated a new 360-degree camera. We hope our winner, Aria Grosvenor, a student at Webster University, is having a blast taking photos with it!
In conjunction with Phillips/Strand Lighting, we sponsored the Wally Russell Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award Ceremony, which honored lighting innovator Gordon Pearlman this year.

InterAmerica Stage, Inc. will return for the USITT conference next year in St. Louis at booth 909. See you there!
