console TRAINING

A hands-on experience on the Stage Expo floor; the console demo area will allow attendees to have dedicated time to learn from the manufacturers themselves. The area will have a schedule offering a number of manufacturer's demo times for you to attend.

 

Learn the ins and outs of the latest technologies from the manufacturers without spending an entire day in a training session. These one hour and fifteen minute sessions are intended to dig a little deeper than a booth visit, but keep your schedule open enough to attend all that USITT offers.
