FlightSimExpo 2019 Dates and Location Announced

D541b564 Z


After the success of the first community driven event, the FSExpo team confirmed that the 2019 event planning had begun. With over 1100 people taking part in the event earlier last month, and selling out a large Las Vegas ballroom, it was looking likely the team were prepared to take it to the next level. Today, we can announce, along with FSExpo and other media partners, that FSExpo 2019 will be held on June 7-9 2019 at the Renaissance Orlando.

“We are proud to have based our location on input from developers, exhibitors, attendees, and the flight simulation community,” says Phil Coyle. “In a recent Twitter poll, Orlando was voted the best location for 2019, consistent with feedback we’ve received from those who joined us in Las Vegas in 2018.”

Orlando is known for its family friendly activities and huge range of things to do. From the theme parks, markets and fun fairs. Furthermore, those travelling can take full advantage of the large international airports that are both nearby and within a few hours drive.

FSExpo at Las Vegas in 2018

Although no developers or publishers have yet to officially confirm, we are pleased to announce that FSElite will be representing the community as a Media Partner yet again. We have listened to your feedback regarding our coverage from the previous event and have already started the process of ensuring we deliver the best experience to everyone.

At last year’s sell out event, FSExpo was supported by big names including Orbx, 1C Game Studios, FlyJSim, PILOT’S, REX Simulations, X-Plane, Aerosoft, Infinite Flight, NATCA, Navigraph, PilotEdge, ProSim, simFlight/simMarket. We’re hoping that many of these names appear at the event next year.

“When I was on site a few weeks ago, it was clear the venue is a great fit for FlightSimExpo,” says Evan Reiter, one of the conference’s co-founders. “Food is made from scratch in-house, the ballrooms are beautiful, there is a pool, arcade, and outdoor game spaces…really, it’s going to make for a fantastic event!”

It’s also been confirmed that registration will begin in December 2018 and weekend tickets will start at the low price of $50.

Keep an eye on the official FlightSimExpo Facebook feed to continue to watch video footage from the event last year.

Flight Sim Expo: Ticket Price Increase as of Monday


Twenty-Eight days. That’s how many days are left until flight simmers from around the world will be gathered in the Flamingo Hotel Las Vegas resort taking part in seminars with guest speakers, exploring the show floor with over 45 exhibitors and entering raffles to win some amazing prizes. We are really excited and things are moving so quick. Of course, FSElite will be there to cover the event as well as announce some new products from some developers!

If you want to go (and there’s plenty of reasons you should come along), then I recommend that you act fast! Ticket prices for the event are currently $70 for the whole weekend, but will go up by $10 come Monday. It’s also worth noting that Monday is the last day you can guarantee yourself great value rates at the hotel itself.

There will be plenty of announcements, product demos and community members at Las Vegas on June 9th and 10th, so why not take the trip and meet some of your favourite developers, publishers and writers *achem*. Who knows, maybe we’ll give you a free T-Shirt for saying hi!

You can find all the details at the website and all the information regarding ticket prices etc. Full press release below.
