As of June 1st, Las Vegas has returned to pre-pandemic guidelines. This is great news for the event and hospitality industry! June 2021 brought back many trade shows that were eager to make a comeback. Here is a recap on some of these shows:
- World of Concrete 2021 was back this year for the first time in 15 months from June 8-10. This was also the first show that utilized Las Vegas Convention Centers brand new 1.4 million sqaure foot West Hall expansion. Not only was World of Concrete the first big trade show back in Vegas, but it was one of the largest trade shows back in the US since the pandemic!
- Nightclub & Bar Show 2021 took place from June 28-30 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Nightclub & Bar show brought in many new vendors, clients, and even industries – which is why they are rebranding in 2022 to the Bar & Restaurant Expo.
- WasteExpo 2021 was back in person this year in Las Vegas from June 28-30. Many said that you could feel the energy in the expo hall now that it was face-to-face again this year. It was just the beginning for the evolving waste industry – and they will be back full force in 2022.
Since trade shows in Vegas are back up and running, we want close by giving you more ideas on what to do when you aren’t on the trade show floor. In a previous blog, we gave recommendations on the ‘quieter’ side of Las Vegas – which are great options if you are still on the fence about being out and about due to the pandemic. Here are other activities to participate in rather than just casinos, nightlife, and fine dining:
- The Neon Museum – this museum is a non-profit dedicated to preserving Las Vegas’ most iconic art and neon signs from old casinos and other businesses.
- Fly Linq is the only zip line on the Vegas strip! Riders launch from a 12-story tower and zip down 1,121 feet. See all the lights and action while flying through the air!
- Big Bus Night Open Top Bus Tour – this is a fun activity for those who have never been to Las Vegas. It allows you to see the strip on an open-top bus while also making stops for you to get off and check out the city.
- Hoover Dam Scooter Tours are guided tours that allow you to check out the Las Vegas scenery and architecture right outside of the city – and there is no special license required to ride their scooters.
- Resorts World Las Vegas – this falls under the umbrella of a casino and fine dining, but Resorts World Las Vegas is a brand-new resort & casino offering world-class entertainment, dining, luxury rooms and one of the finest gaming experiences in the world!
