After its early years in Essen, the I.T. moved to Düsseldorf in 2002. Each autumn, it offers four days of exhibition stands with information about current dance events worldwide, an international artistic showcase programme with 37 companies and soloists from 17 countries and an international discussion and lecture programme. It sees itself as a showcase for contemporary dance and as a platform where artists, dance organisers, managers, scholars and promoters meet to exchange and discuss the latest information on dance worldwide. Likewise, the I. T. offers a market for suppliers of products and services related to dance.
It is a project of the Gesellschaft für Zeitgenössischen Tanz (GZT NRW) and the NRW Landesbüro Tanz with the support of the public sector.
