Exhibit Hall

Commercial Exhibits at the 67th annual SETC Convention.
Ed Expo at the 67th annual SETC Convention.

SETC Convention attendees are invited and encouraged to explore the Exhibit Hall. The Commercial Exhibits offer vast opportunities to learn about the latest theatre equipment, products, services and supplies — and to make valuable connections with publishers, production houses, costume shops, ticketing services and more. The Education Expo features 100+ colleges, universities and training programs ready to meet with those interested in continuing their education in theatre.

More Than Exhibits

In addition to the featured exhibitor booths, the Exhibit Hall is also home to special events that are open to all convention attendees. For example, last year’s Exhibit Hall included a Beer Break sponsored by Philips Entertainment Lighting (Vari-Lite / Strand) and a Commercial Exhibitor Showcase (complete with Mountain Dew cupcakes) sponsored by Hollins Exposition Services.

Theatre Job Fair and the Design Competition can also be found in the Exhibit Hall; though separate applications/fees are required to participate in the those events, everyone is welcome to browse the student design and technical displays.

Louisville spent $207 million to renovate the newly refurbished Kentucky International Convention Center.
