FlightSimExpo 2019 was a huge success. Nearly 1,700 people attended the show over the course of the weekend. Exploring the large exhibition show floor and enjoying countless seminars from flight simulator developers, enthusiasts and aviation experts. At the end of the busy weekend, Evan took to the stage to confirm that Las Vegas would be the event city for FlightSimExpo 2020. It has been confirmed that FlightSimExpo 2020 will take place during June 12th – June 14th 2020 at Tropicana Las Vegas.
Returning to where FlightSimExpo initially started, Las Vegas was chosen by the community in a series of online polls. Phil, co-founder of FlightSimExpo said, “We are once again excited to bring FlightSimExpo back to Las Vegas, and to the city voted on by the community. We used social media, surveys, and email conversations with developers over the past several months to pick the date and location that the community wanted most.”
Las Vegas is an exciting destination with plenty to see and do both during and outside of the event weekend. With easy transportation around the city, low airfares and plenty of social opportunities, Las Vegas is a great destination for the show. The team will be working with airlines, transport companies and local attraction hubs to arrange special discounts for attendees.
Friday June 12th will see the return of Captains’ Corner, an add-on event that sees various developers give talks on a range of simulation topics. Saturday June 13th and Sunday June 14th will see many exhibitors flood the show floor sharing new details on new products and giving you the chance to try things out. More news of exhibitors and seminars will be shared in a few months time.
As for the venue, Tropicana Las Vegas, it’s a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel and is centrally located on the Las Vegas strip. The hotel offers a range of activities within the hotel including an award-winning swimming pool, spa and fitness centre. The team at FlightSimExpo has negotiated a hotel room rate of an average of just $150 per night over three nights, which includes all taxes, resort fees, free parking, WiFi, 2-for-1 show tickets and cocktails, 2 bottles of water and more.
As for tickets and registration for the show, that will be made available this coming December. Ticket prices will be the same as in previous years. Starting December, a limited number of $50 tickets will go on sale, followed by $70 all-weekend registrations.
“Vegas was a great venue for the inaugural FlightSimExpo, and we look forward to returning there in 2020,” says Evan Reiter, co-founder. “Attendees from the west coast kick-started FlightSimExpo in 2018. For those who couldn’t join us in Orlando: we look forward to seeing you again! And for those who attended both, we think you’ll love the Tropicana this year.”
