Las Vegas Conventions for January 2011

There are so many different kinds of conventions happening in Las Vegas this coming January. Conventions for Potato heads,  Geeks, Adults, Doctors, lawyers and more, every conceivable convention is in Las Vegas in January.


The first ‘really big show’ not counting the National Potato Council 2011 Potato Expo is the CES or Consumer Electronics Show, billed as the 2011 International CES with 120,000 geeks, I mean people are planning to attend. Dates of the CES are January 6th through the 9th.


Then 2000 people will be attending the 2001 Sin City Shootout Softball Tournament. Teams are looking for players and players are still looking for teams. There is still time for you get on a team, really, check it out. More info here: http://www.sincityshootout.com/.



Ben and Jerry’s Franchise meeting is expecting 400 at the Red Rock Casino Resort Spa. I didn’t know Ben and Jerry were franchising. Sounds interesting but you have to be dedicated. From their website: “What does it mean to be a Ben & Jerry’s franchisee? It means you are a totally-devoted, head-over-heels Ben & Jerry’s nut. You live for euphoric super-premium ice cream. You live for serving customers. And you live for giving back to the community.” More info on that here: http://www.benjerry.com/scoop-shops/franchise-opportunities/


Anthony Robbins has a conference at Caesars Palace and abut 800 people are planning to attend. I can’t stand his commercials on Sirus XM, he is on constantly with that ‘just woke up’ voice. Jez the guy is brilliant, but can you have some else speak in your commercials. Also a few sound effects would be great.


Next up with the American Osteopathic Association and Western Beauty Rep Associations with combined attendance of 1350. Unlikely that there will be much crossover traffic at these two conventions. Maybe some doctors wives.


The California Teachers Assoication and the Army Navy Military Expo will have overlapping conventions at different hotels across town, combined planned attendance is around 1650.  Here is something interesting, Let’s Play Hockey has 4000 hockey players attending. Maybe they aren’t all hockey players now, but at one time, haven’t we all played hockey?


Now for the Biggies after the
2011 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show is planning on 55,000 attendees! and World of Concrete 65,000! Who would know. Also World Market Cener with 50,000 planned. The last big show is January 25-27, Surfaces 2011 is expecting 25,000 who are interested in floors, tiles and other surfaces.
