Pro Show

This year we are pleased to once again offer to our popular Pro.Show, taking place on Friday in the DMNS West atrium.

Delegates from past Summits have told us that not only do members provide fantastic services to the public and theater community, but they buy and sell from and to each other. Members of IMERSA are vendors, producers, content providers, and consumers of many services. In other words, we’re all vendors and participants in the marketplace.



It’s a special Friday afternoon event, in the beautiful DMNS atrium where you can meet the other pros who provide our community with equipment, content, visualizations, music, and other services.

To participate in the Pro.Show click here to reserve your table, or click to contact Lori.

Pro.Show Host Mark C. Petersen will be happy to answer any questions.
