what s up with vegas
What’s up with Vegas

On paper it is hard to beat, but…..

  • Some unconfirmed rumors about the future of the Sands Convention Center
  • Waning interest in staying there from both exhibitors and retailers
  • Even with present efforts in place; lack of cycling culture
  • By 2009 it will be 12 years in Las Vegas!
some options
Some Options
  • Denver, CO
  • Anaheim, CA
  • Salt Lake City?
salt lake city ut
PROS

Very relaxed labor and drayage regulations

Cycling friendly region, more in line with industry’s preference

Large event in a small town = red carpet treatment

No gambling, less distractions

Bike industry may have greater impact on local advocacy

Good options for OutDoor Demo

Greener, cleaner and leaner

Change is good, change might be welcomed

CONS

Salt Palace will not come close to accommodating the 3,100+ booths with current floor plan configurations

Individual spaces in main exhibit area will need to be created as peninsulas

300 - 400+ booths in ancillary Convention Center spaces still needed

Space growth opportunities will be very challenging

Interbike’s host lodging options sometimes as far as 20 miles from Expo

Increases in average air fare rates, no direct international flights

Far fewer restaurants and entertainment options. Longer lines and wait times
