Las Vegas set to host 70 new conventions this year

Las Vegas is clearly no stranger to American business. Home to some of the country’s — if not the world’s — most prolific casinos and resorts, Sin City is bustling with activity for both business owners and consumers alike. But 2014 looks like it will bring even more neighbors into town, with upwards of 70 new conventions coming to Las Vegas this year.

Local news publication The Review-Journal reports that these 70 business gatherings — slated to bring in about 500 attendees each — will span the gamut of American industries, from libraries to clean energy. Trade groups like the American Library Association, Solar Power International and the American Wind Energy Association will bring their annual expos to Vegas throughout 2014, with approximately 50,000 delegates and $63 million in non-gaming revenue for the city.

Another nine shows that regularly rotate their venues — including the construction event CONEXPO-CON/AGG — are also poised to return to Las Vegas this year, bringing another 320,000 attendees and additional $404 million in revenue.

Put together, Las Vegas trade shows in 2014 will use the equivalent of 185 football fields worth of exhibition and meeting space.

“We are always seeking new business,” Chris Meyer, the global business sales vice president for the Las Convention and Visitors Authority, told the source.

But with an influx of new businesses and new visitors comes a higher demand for Las Vegas hospitality insurance. After all, with so many new people in one place, the potential for risk and liability becomes more of a real possibility. Ensure that your interests and your firm are protected in the event of such a scenario with the proper coverage.
