Sports Licensing & entertainment Marketplace
Sports Licensed and Tailgate Industry Green-Light January 2008 Show
Buyers, Sellers & Leagues Confirm Need for Strong Trade Event

Time is money. And when there is money to be made in the licensed sports business, timing is important. These two ideas converged in discussions with licensors, licensed manufacturers and licensed buyers in the days following the Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show, which debuted in Las Vegas last November.

The result of these talks was a clear, across-the-board consensus: The industry wants and needs a robust annual trade event.

Thus the next Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show will be held Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 16 to 18, 2008 at a new venue, the Sands/Venetian Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Tailgate Picnic Show



Venetian Joins Roster of Show Hotels
One of Many Properties Offering Special Rates
October 10, 2007

It was the neighborly thing to do. The Venetian Hotel & Casino—connected by corridor to the Sand Expo home of the Sports Licensing & Entertainment Marketplace and Tailgate • Picnic Show—has joined the list of exclusive Las Vegas addresses offering attendees special rates this January. The dates of the show are January 16–18, 2008.

This should help alleviate the anticipated housing crunch as the show draws near and registration builds. If you haven’t cemented your plans for the show, the first step is to register—it’s still just $25. This opens up a whole world of travel and hotel deals, as well as starting the flow of information on show specials, discounts and money-saving buyer programs.

“If you have registered, but haven’t nailed down a hotel room, you can still make those reservations through the show’s travel page,” says Ann Keusch, Show Director. “We have some wonderful hotels participating, but the rooms are beginning to disappear. You know Vegas!”

For information on registration or hotel registration, you can also call (800) 327-3736.
