WTC Leaders Meet at CES 2019 in Las Vegas

Jan 29, 2019

WTC Las Vegas, on the site of the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), is one of the busiest facilities in the world, welcoming approximately 1.4 million convention attendees annually.

WTC Las Vegas aims to promote the value of tradeshows, conferences, events and exhibitions as a conduit for promoting trade and global business partnerships.

In January, the destination welcomed CES® 2019 with an estimated 180,000 attendees. This event alone is expected to generate more than $264 million for southern Nevada’s economy, demonstrating the far-reaching impact of the tradeshow industry.

During CES® 2019, the WTC Las Vegas team connected with partners across the WTCA network, including colleagues from WTC Seoul, WTC Shanghai, WTC Trieste and WTC Queretaro and others, who traveled to the destination to experience CES® 2019. Several WTCs were traveling with exhibiting companies and CEOs looking to explore the latest technology and develop business opportunities. The show provides an incredible opportunity for groups to meet face-to-face in a collaborative and convenient location.

It’s an exciting time for the meeting industry in Las Vegas, with more than 11 million square feet of existing meeting space and another three million square feet of space in development. Additionally, the LVCC campus is in the midst of an innovative expansion project, set for completion in December 2020 in advance of CES® 2020.
