The 2022 USITT-SE Regional Conference’s Design/Tech Expo will showcase student work in an onsite gallery. Costume, scenery, lighting, sound, properties, and projection designs will be displayed with technical production and costume technology projects. A jury of professional designers, artisans, and technologists will identify (up to three) particularly distinguished student works. USITT-SE will honor up to three selected students with registration fees for the 2023 USITT Conference & Stage Expo. The deadline to Register for the Expo is Sept 9th, 2022.
You will need to submit a conference fee payment (there is no additional fee for the Expo this year!) and fill out the Regional Conference Registration Form before your design expo registration will be confirmed and you will be emailed more information about the Expo. For additional information contact Vandy Scoates.



There are slots available for workshops or presentations for USITT-SE Regional Conference. This is a great opportunity for professors, professionals and graduate students to show their skills and help teach others. Most of the conference classrooms will accommodate small to medium groups and we encourage hands-on workshops.
The deadline to register for presentations is Aug 19th, 2022 If you have any questions about resources, space, or just need help refining your idea, please email Casey Watkins.
