Big rush on opening day for USITT

The United States Institute for Theatre Technology, better known as USITT held the annual conference and Stage Expo in Milwaukee, WI, this year.
The IAS crew left the warm weather of Florida last week to be part of what we are considering our best USITT convention thus far. IAS project manager Jason Peliwo sums it up, “turn out for the show was amazing, the sessions were as diverse as the attendees and the local crew and hosting venue couldn’t have been more inviting.”

USITT 2013 IAStage Booth

SkyDeck™ was showcased this year, featuring a walkable hinged access panel. As expected, it was a great hit with the attendees who enjoyed opening and closing the panels first hand and seeing the other many options that Skydeck™ has to offer.

IAStage also featured the IAS25 sound panels. We assembled two stage manager stations for David McGraw’s Stage Manager Simulator (SM-SIM). Their visitors were allowed to experience this marvelous voice operated system first hand and in relatively quiet environment compared to the very busy show floor thanks to the IAS25 sound panel enclosure.
