EXPO-SCÈNE Returned to Montreal in April
This year ’ s edition of EXPO-SCÈNE took place April 13 and 14 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal and featured over 50 trade show exhibitors , educational TEC talks , demo rooms and networking opportunities to nearly 1600 attendees over the show ’ s two days .
As Canada ’ s premiere entertainment technology show , EX- PO-SCÈNE is one of the most highly anticipated events in the pro-audio , sound , lighting , audiovisual , and multimedia technologies and is the only show of its kind and calibre in all of Canada . The Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology ( CITT / ICTS )’ s annual show was postponed twice due to covid ( in 2020 and 2021 ) before returning last year .
While CITT / ICTSNational Coordinator Monique Corbeil acknowledged that the show overlapped with the NAMM show and happened less than a week before the NAB show , she was pleased with both the attendance and the quality of the event
“ This was a very special year because we ’ ve come out of covid ,” she said . “ Last year the show was a bit bigger , but we wanted to do this show with the same quality that we ’ ve always done before but put a hold on expansion until the next year .”
Corbeil was also happy about the presence of students at the show . “ For next year and beyond [ we ’ re going to get ] involved with other theatre production schools , not just from Quebec but even across Canada . It ’ s a unique opportunity for the students that are at least in Quebec to be able to see a show like this without having to go outside the country . For example , I know my days when I was studying theatre production , many many moons ago , I did not have that opportunity to see shows like that . But it ’ s something that is important to have the schools involved , so this year we ’ ve we had four schools that were there . We want to see that expand in the future .”
“ It ’ s really hard to say what ’ s going to happen before the show because , for me , what makes this show amazing and worthwhile is the quality of the exhibitors in their booth and what they present and what they ’ re doing in their space ,” Corbeil added .
