With over 32 million visitors per year, Vegas is one of most popular tourist destinations in the world. In addition to world-class hotels, dining, and entertainment, Las Vegas has become a premier destination for doing international business and gets over 2 million convention visitors annually. Before the pandemic hit over 3.5M people attended conventions, but things are starting to get back to normal now with most of the major conventions, like the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) back in business.

We have listed the major Vegas conventions happening in 2022 and 2023. It also includes the expected visitor attendance. Unfortunately, high attendance conferences can cause hotel rates to go up significantly, so if you have flexible stay dates and don’t need to attend a convention, you might want to skip going on these very busy times. However, one unexpected benefit relates to more gambling tables and lower minimum bets when you play. You will also find more entertainment and shows playing.

While you might be able to get information on whatever interests you online, there is something special about being around a large crowd of convention goer enthusiasts ranging from tech to fashion. You can click on the links provided to find out more information about each show.

Please note that in many cases you cannot attend a convention unless you provide proof that you actually work in that industry. Further, you often cannot bring non-qualified friends/family guests with you. While it would be nice if they allowed regular folks to attend them, you need to realize that the vendors spend a lot of money to be there and expect everyone around them to be worth their time. However, a few conventions, like the Outdoor Christmas Expo, are free and open to anyone.

Please comment below if you find any mistakes or feel we are missing any that you feel should be listed. You can also find additional conventions listed on Vegas Means Business.
