Kick off USITT with a celebration! Opening night is a gathering of all attendees to network and be entertained. In 2018, USITT will be attempting to utilize the outdoor stage for a first ever Opening Night under the stars. The night will feature new product demos from exhibiting companies as well as entertainment from world class productions. And of course, the swag will still be part of the event! Make sure to add this to your evening plans.
