LDI2011 carries on the tradition of Backstage events, with both Backstage Orlando, October 24-26, and Backstage@Sea, a technology cruise aboard the new Disney Dream, October 30-November 3. Both offer a unique way to go backstage... on land and at sea... and see entertainment technology at work in a variety of settings.

Check out complete details on Backstage Orlando, which kicks off LDI2011, and includes performances and tours of Cirque du Soleil's resident show, La Nouba, and Blue Man Group, as well as a day at DisneyWorld. Register by September 23 to enjoy savings on the full Backstage package as well as one-day options if that is all your schedule can afford.

After LDI2011 closes, let us take you on a sea cruise with Backstage@Sea: your deck chair awaits you on the new Disney Dream, where we will have backstage access to all the entertainment venues on the ship. Disney lighting designer Ryan Gravilla will be sailing with us and is a wonderful source of information about the Disney ships and shows, in addition to the technicians aboard the Dream who will meet with us as well. The price of $1995* includes a 4-day LDInnovation and Conference Badge. To book your cabin for LDI's Backstage@Sea please contact Zari Stahl at +215-489-9556 or zari.stahl@penton.com.


*based on double occupancy, ask about single rates. Must book by August 11 to guarantee this price.

From October 24-30, LDI2011 offers the industry's most comprehensive professional training. See you there!
