ITEX MOVES TO LAS VEGAS’ MIRAGE RESORT, APRIL 18-19, 2012
NEWTON, MA - June 29, 2011– The 2012 ITEX National Expo & Conference is moving to Las Vegas’ exclusive, award-winning Mirage Resort, Wednesday, April 18-Thursday, April 19, 2012. The move to Las Vegas, based on attendee and exhibitor feedback, as well as previous success there, affords the following benefits:
• Easily accessible city from all parts of the U.S.
• Cost-effective, competitive airfare and hotel rates
• Desirable destination, with The Mirage centrally located on the Las Vegas strip
• Adjacent space that locates Conference and Expo together to foster greater interaction
• Single hotel venue, which unites event
“We’ve reached out to attendees, exhibitors and the ITEX/imageSource Advisory Council members, and their feedback indicated that a return to Las Vegas would be well received,” said Event Director Beth Torrey. “Along with the move, there will also be further changes to the event, including a revised Conference schedule and added networking opportunities to make ITEX 2012 more successful and vital than ever. In addition, the shift from a Tuesday-Wednesday to a Wednesday-Thursday format decreases exhibitor costs by eliminating weekend move-in rates.”
The 2011 event was held for the first time on the East Coast in Washington, DC and provided attendees and exhibitors the opportunity to meet and network with entirely new peers and prospective partners. In a post-show survey, 94% of attendees indicated that they were planning to attend ITEX 2012. The return to Las Vegas will expand ITEX’s brand and reach even further to dealers and vendors nationwide, adding those East Coast dealers who attended in 2011 for the first time.
"It is great news to hear that ITEX is returning to its roots in Las Vegas for 2012. Better yet, the Mirage offers a convenient central-strip location and provides easy access to its convention and breakout rooms,” said Ronelle Ingram, Vice President, Technical Service, Steven Enterprises, Inc. “So much is happening within the industry that attending ITEX is a surefire way to explore new areas of education and profitability."
