Las Vegas  Named No. 1 Trade Show Destination Again


LAS VEGAS, NV, USA – Las Vegas comes of age as it is named the No. 1 trade show destination for the 21st consecutive year, according to the Trade Show News Network’s (TSNN) “2014 TSNN Top 250 Trade Shows in the United States” list. Las Vegas hosted 60 of the largest shows held in the country last year, up from the 53 it hosted in 2013.

“We are proud to once again hold the rank of No. 1 trade show destination and we commend our resort partners for their commitment to the industry,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, president/CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA). “Maintaining the top ranking is a testament to all of the hard working people who make Las Vegas a premier business destination and deliver on the brand promise that Vegas Means Business.”

The coveted list by Trade Show News Network represents the largest 250 trade shows held in the country last year, ranked by net square footage.

The 60 shows in Las Vegas encompassed 22.3 million net square feet, or 33% percent of the total space for all 250 shows. The two largest single shows were Conexpo-CON/AGG at 2.4 million net square feet, followed by International CES® at more than 2.1 million net square feet. Both of these shows were at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the official World Trade Center Las Vegas site.

“It’s no surprise that Las Vegas once again captured the No. 1 spot on the 2014 TSNN Top 250 Trade Show list,” said TSNN President Rachel Wimberly. “With world-class convention facilities and services, combined with topnotch hotels, restaurants and entertainment, Las Vegas continues to attract the biggest shows in the U.S.”
