“AACN’s Critical Care Exposition is an extension of the healthcare education program presented during the association’s annual conference each May. Not only do thousands of critical care nurses see, touch and interact with healthcare products, they gain valuable knowledge on healthcare procedures, techniques and best practices so they may provide the best possible care to critically ill patients wherever they’re located around the world.” – Randy Bauler, Corporate Relations & Exhibits Director at American Association of Critical-Care Nurses
"Exhibitions and Events ARE my world. On a daily basis, I watch events bring in all walks of life from Superman to Celebrities to stay at home mothers. The greatest take-away I've witnessed is how much joy and excitement people receive, regardless of the nature of the event. It's very apparent that it's all about people and connections and likely always will be." – Misty Brewer, Event Manager, Anaheim Convention Center, SWIAEE President
“Meetings, conventions and trade shows were huge business for Las Vegas in 2016, bringing nearly 22,000 events and a record-breaking 6.3 million business delegates to the destination, which produced a local economic impact of approximately $12.4 billion. Because of the demand for meeting and exhibit space, we’ve started work on the $1.4 billion expansion and renovation of the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is critical to maintain our status as the No. 1 trade show destination in the country – a designation we’ve held for 23 consecutive years. We’re adding 600,000 square feet of exhibition space, as well as renovating our existing 3.2 million-square-foot facility, which is all part of our commitment that Vegas means business, ” - John Schreiber, senior director of business sales for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
