Upcoming show in Sin City? Follow these tips and you’ll see that making trade shows work for you in Las Vegas isn’t complicated—though the rewards can be outstanding! Set Aside Time to Enjoy the City – But Keep On Task Otherwise Las Vegas is a fun city and a great place to visit. So, give your staff some flexibility to choose to stay in the city after the show or to come in early to have some fun, see some shows, and relax. However, during the event itself everyone should stay focused on work. Make sure everyone knows that between meals, exhibiting, presentations, and rest there won’t be time for sightseeing or entertainment during exhibition days. Use the Monorai The monorail in Las Vegas has seven stations, arrives every 4-8 minutes, moves fast, and is one of the best ways for visitors to get around the city. Get passes and make it to your events faster and for less. Hire Local to Save Money Need more staff for your booth? Models, entertainers, event planners, handymen, and other labor is abundantly available in the city. Check your candidates’ reviews, hire local, and you may find yourself saving big on travel expenses. Know the Rules In Las Vegas exhibitors are barred from installing or dismantling any electrical equipment, AV equipment, or any freight that cannot be carried by hand inside the exhibit hall. To do these things and get your booth set up and taken down correctly and on time, you’ll need to work with the Union and follow their rules. Book well in advance Vegas events fill up fast, which can make getting hotel rooms, tickets, and booth space a challenge. Set up these details as far in advance as possible to maximize your chances. Exploit the Vegas Effect The Vegas effect refers to the fact that events held in Sin City tend to attract 5-10% greater attendance simply because people love visiting the city. Prioritize Vegas events accordingly.

Rules for the SEMA Trade Show The SEMA Trade Show, hosted in the Las Vegas Convention Center by the Specialty Equipment Market Association, brings in over 2000 exhibitors to a show floor of a staggering 2 million square feet. And with over 60,000 domestic and international buyers in attendance, the stakes for exhibitors are high. This is why having the right trade show display matters, one that helps you stand out and make a solid impression. Unfortunately, regional regulations and show requirements place strict boundaries on the creativity of any particular exhibitor. Several of the most important rules to keep in mind include: Exhibit Space Selection Order: Spaces on the exhibit floor are parceled out in waves based on 1) SEMA membership status (members pick first) and 2) show seniority (the longest repeat exhibitors have earlier pick). Once it is a particular exhibitor’s turn to pick their location they will receive a telephone call and then will need to navigate to a certain website address to choose their location on the main floorplan. Booth Noise: There are two limits to the noise or music an exhibitor may project inside their booth. First, music (or any other sound) emitting from an exhibit space shall not exceed 85 decibels, and second, all music and entertainment must be in good taste and not include any lyrics that are “inflammatory, sexually explicit, sexist, gang-related or violent or that promote activities of any type that defame or denigrate women, law enforcement or other established authorities.” Violators may receive warnings but are subject to immediate closure of their exhibit. Lotteries and Contests: Drawings and raffles may be classic booth strategies, but anything that might be considered gambling is not permitted. At SEMA the operation of games of chance, lottery devices, or certain other competitions are prohibited unless approved in writing beforehand by show management. Booth Design: Among many other restrictions, any booth construction needs to follow OSHA regulations and union rules. For multilevel or covered booths, plans have to be submitted before the event starts and must also have an engineering stamp. Other rules include fire escape routes for the upper level, height restrictions, coverage restrictions, fire alarms for larger exhibits, and more. Fortunately, when you work with ELDS, Inc. you don’t have to worry about booth compliance. We’ll make sure that all SEMA trade show displays are fully compliant, installed on time, and taken down without trouble. All you have to worry about is presenting at the show itself!
