Ticket Summit, the ticket industry trade show held each summer, is returning to the Bellagio for 2019, according to a post on its website. The 2019 edition will take place on July 8-10, returning to the hotel and casino where its 2012 and 2013 iterations were held.
“We are thrilled to be able to announce that we are heading to the world famous Bellagio for what is certain to be another fantastic show,” says Allison Simoes, Executive Director, Ticket Summit. “Attendance has never been higher than Ticket Summit 2018, so we’re going to have to once again raise the bar. We’re excited to put together a can’t-miss event, and see everyone next July on the famous Las Vegas Strip.”
Ticket Summit 2018 saw a record number of attendees hit the trade show floor at Caesars Palace, with overflow crowds at presentations and exhibitor spaces from the Monday afternoon networking cocktail reception through the Wednesday afternoon ticket industry keynote and closing gala later that evening. Presented by TicketNetwork and DTI Management with featured sponsor Broker Genius, Ticket Summit broke 800 attendees for the first time in the show’s long history.
While no schedule has been released for the 2019 event yet, it is widely expected to follow the same general format as in recent years – a Monday afternoon check-in and opening reception, followed by two full days of panels, workshops, and networking with industry thought leaders. Event organizers expected that additional information about conference specifics would be available in coming months.
Known for its world famous fountains as well as serving as the setting for the 2001 film Ocean’s Eleven, Bellagio features nearly 4,000 guest rooms and 116,000 square feet of gaming space. Notable restaurants include Le Cirque, Picasso, Jasmine, Spago and Yellowtail, while the property also features a fine art gallery, conservatory and botanical gardens, and shopping. The property, which opened on the site of the former Dunes hotel and casino in 1998, has earned AAA’s Five Diamond Award 15 times.
