Register today for backstage events at Orlando’s leading theme parks. The kick-off to LDI2009, Backstage Orlando, takes place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, November 16-18, with visits to the three major theme parks in Orlando. While the exact schedules are taking shape based on park activities, Backstage Orlando once again promises to be a combination of facts and fun, shows and seminars, all with an accent on the technological challenges of the theme park environment.

Highlights of Backstage Orlando 2009 include:

Monday evening, November 16
Universal Studios Orlando and Hard Rock Live

Backstage Orlando starts with an evening of fun, food, and technology at Universal Studios Orlando, Hard Rock Live, and a look at a new lobby installation at the Blue Man Theatre. Meet the experts and see sophisticated new technology in one of the world’s leading theme parks, a hot live music venue, and a state-of-the-art theatre…and hear about exciting new rides and attractions such as Universal’s magical Island of Adventure for Harry Potter (in 2010).
