"We know that on the West Coast there are large numbers of manufacturers who aren't going to go to Chicago or Atlanta, so we bring the show to them.  Las Vegas brings us a new audience, and that's what the exhibitors are there for: new buyers for new industries."

Couple that with a tremendous amount of outdoor space for live events, trams for attendees to get to all the great restaurants and that fabulous Las Vegas weather ... all that makes Vegas a very unique offering."
