USITT is the industry leader in providing lifelong learning opportunities to the live entertainment design and technology industry and engaging its thousands of members at every point throughout their careers.

Founded in 1960 as an organization to promote dialogue, research, and learning among practitioners of theatre design and technology, USITT produces its signature event, the Annual Conference & Stage Expo each year and compliments this with in-person learning opportunities throughout the country and a series of webinars and online conversations, all of which can be found at www.usitt.org.

In 2022, USITT debuted a series of hands-on learning laboratories to provide practical experience across all of the backstage disciplines. So popular were these inaugural labs, USITT has expanded them for 2023.

Additionally, hundreds of traditional educational sessions will be presented at USITT23 along with one of the industry’s most exciting trade shows and recruiting events, Stage Expo, and plenty of time to network and make new connections.
