Las Vegas Conventions 2018

We all know that conventions are just excuses to get out of the office and use that company credit card to foot a bar tab. Conventions in Las Vegas are a completely different beast, though. Yeah, there’s going to be some “useful information” for you to bring back to your supervisor, but these Las Vegas conventions literally and metaphorically have pyro, scantily clad promo models and interactive displays that’ll blow the pants off the portfolio-presenting competition. Let’s be honest, if you’re just looking for information, sit down and Google it like an adult. But if you want some inspiration, some flare and maybe a little somethin’ extra, nothing beats a Las Vegas convention. So check out some of the city’s most popular conventions below (they each host 50,000+ attendees) and start crafting an excuse to dip out on a few days of work for the chance to “learn something that will greatly benefit the company.” While you’re at it, get that company credit card ready to swipe at a Las Vegas show or one of the best restaurants in Vegas.  

Conventions in Las Vegas

Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 1/9/2018 – 1/12/2018
One of the city’s largest conventions, CES is the Mecca for all things technology. You can basically expect anything and everything displayed here to be at the top of next year’s holiday list. Even better, it’s all hands on. So get ready to have some fun and brag to your friends about getting to test out **insert super rad technology here** before anyone else.

National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 4/9/2018 – 4/12/2018
In the media bizz? Dabble in a little entertainment or technology? Then this is the convention for you. It’s the bees knees for learning about all the latest, cutting-edge training, craft sharpening and connecting with industry leaders. Hear that kids? Get your resumes ready.

MAGIC Marketplace Show 2/12/2018 – 2/14/2018 & 8/13/2018 – 8/15/2018
Look good, feel good, do good, right? And a major part of lookin’ good is the duds we choose to drape ourselves in each day. The MAGIC Marketplace brings the top fashion execs and influencers to create/develop all things fashion. These guys and gals analyze trends, strategies and all of that other nonsense to keep us all on the up-and-up and looking presentable in society.

Shooting, Hunting & Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) 1/23/2018 – 1/26/2018
Gone Fishin’ is the sign we place on our cubicle when SHOT Show comes to town. This is where all of our deer hunting, fly fishin’ and firearm shootin’ brethren gather to learn about the latest compliance regulations, safety tips and all-around outdoors advice. We’re new to the hunting world, and apparently there’s more to landing a 7 point buck than just dowsing yourself in deer urine. Who knew?

World of Concrete 1/23/2018 – 1/26/2018
There’s something to be said about one’s foundation. And there’s no larger annual international event dedicated to concrete or masonry than the World of Concrete event. Latest equipment, industry news and bringing industry leaders together is the foundation that this convention is built on. And you thought that we were going to make a corny concrete joke –actually, it’d be a cement joke, but who’s checking.

Las Vegas Market (Summer & Winter) 1/28/2018 – 2/1/2018 & 7/29/2018 – 8/2/2018
Twice a year, Las Vegas Market brings thousands of retailers and designers to check out the latest trends and fixtures in the world of home style and décor. And we’re glad they do this too, because if they didn’t we’d still be hanging pictures of beer on our walls and eating TV dinners on our dorm room bean bags. Shout out to you guys for helping us adult in style.
