After making it back to San Francisco from a grueling CES 2008 – the Consumer Electronics Show, and then to make it just in time for MacWorld Expo wow, what a run! MacWorld was a tiny show compared to CES (the Mammoth of all Tradeshows) but what a great collection of Exhibitors showcasing some wonderful products both for Mac and Windows computers. Of course we will have much more for you to see on the CES & MacWorld fronts, and now, as promised here is your special report on some upcoming Tradeshows and Conferences for the Events & Creative Industries. This is for our Friends (Members) at the Event City Network.
Coming soon to a Convention center near you, more than a handful of some great Conferences and Tradeshows. These Expos will ALL take place within the next 50 days. Yep, you heard me right, all within 50 days and two of them are “Multi-Shows”, covering numerous vertical markets within their events.
These conferences will represent the Hospitality, Events, Meeting Planning, Party and Photographic industries. There are many vertical markets that will converge these shows for specific, but in some cases, diverse audiences. These are all fantastic shows and all of them will provide a plethora of information for you and your companies.
First it’s a Photo-Imagers Disneyland, Photo Marketing Association Tradeshow-PMA commences at the end of this month in Las Vegas, January 31 – February 2nd.
Then sometime soon after, also in Las Vegas, you will have the opportunity to join us at this next show which is the CES for the Hospitality industry; one of the Event City Industries biggest and most illustrious Tradeshows ever! The International Hospitality Week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 24-27.
This is a very good conference and expo that will take place in San Francisco at Moscone Convention Center. This event is a great way to gain some knowledge of the Meeting and Hospitality industry overall. It’s especially strong if you want to further your education and learn how to become a Certified Meeting Professional. This is a wonderful event to meet players in the industry (mostly from California), make all types of contacts – numerous vertical markets attend this show, and for all this, the price is definitely right!
And finally – It’s Our party and we’ll cry if we want too, but just don’t miss all the great Halloween and Event industry products at this outrageous tradeshow, The HALLOWEEN, PARTY AND COSTUME Show at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas running from March 16 – 19.
Industry insiders and surely many outsiders say of all tradeshows for all industries you will not have nearly as much fun as you will have at this upcoming Halloween and Party show. If you are in any of the industries associated with Event City, you need to be at this event. If you can’t make it, then keep your finger on the mouse and point it here for complete reporting, a special showcase (See products on Event City Live! and ECTV) as we present many updates on all these “Must Do” tradeshows for the Events & Creative Industries(tm). We will keep you posted with all the details on these great shows.
Please don’t forget to comment with your questions, ideas and overall feedback on our objectives for the Events & Creative Industries and how we plan to help you achieve your objectives through our work.
Thanks for visiting our city, your city – EVENT CITY! We hope you plan on hanging out more and more as we build this city on creativity – we are, “Corporately Clean and Creativity Cool”!
